Datsun 510

Datsun 510So why have I included the Datsun 510 into my site? It’s not a supercar by any means, however, it did have some success in rallying and was competitive in the Trans Am series under 2000cc class. It doesn’t look particularly nice in standard form, however, once modified, this boxy little car looks rather sweet.

Nissan Silvia

nissan-s15The Nissan Silvia is the name given to the company’s long-running line of sport coupes based on the Nissan S platform. Although recent models have shared this chassis with other vehicles produced by Nissan (most notably the European 200SX and North American 240SX in the S13 and S14 generations, and 180SX in the Japanese market), the name Silvia is not interchangeable with the chassis codes.

Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R

Nissan_Skyline_R34_GT-R_Nur_5thgenThe most gorgeous of all the Skylines especially in the Bayside Blue colour, with huge tuning potential, my favourite of all the Skylines.

In May 1998, after sales of the Nissan Skyline plummeted from the release of the R33 chassis the EN34, HR34, ER34 and BNR34 addressed many of the concerns over the change from the R33, with more emphasis on sportiness, and marked the introduction of the more fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly RB25DET NEO engine. Also the front end was re-arranged from the R33 unattractive front end and was aimed more towards the R32 style to draw people back into the “skyline world” . The RB20E engine was discontinued in the R34 base model (GT), and the RB20DE, after last being used in the R32 Skyline, was reintroduced in updated NEO guise. The R34 GT powered by the RB20DE NEO, coupled with a 5-speed gearbox, became the most fuel-efficient straight-6 Skyline to date (of any shape). Carlos Ghosn stated on the release date of the Nissan Skyline R34 that “We hope to win people back with the old school design based around the R32 shell, due to the initial complaints corresponded with the R33 chasis and body” The 5-speed automatic transmission available on some models in the previous two shapes were discontinued. In its place, Nissan produced a 4-speed Tiptronic transmission for all of the automatic versions (Except the base 2.0L, which has a standard 5 speed gearbox). Only the GT-T coupe variant was sold in New Zealand from 2000 and it was the only country besides Japan that sold the R34 GT-T model Skylines new. The GT-T models were rebadged as Infiniti G25t for export markets.

Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R

Nissan_Skyline_R33_GT-R_4thgen

Give me a V-Spec II of these and I’ll be a happy bunny.

R33
The R33 Skyline was introduced in August 1993. Slightly heavier than the R32, it is available in coupe and sedan bodystyles. All models now used a 6-cylinder engine. Nissan took the unusual step of down-grading the GTS model to have only the RB20E, while the twin-cam of the R32 GTS was discontinued along with the 2.0 L turbo RB20DET.

Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R

Nissan_Skyline_R32_GT-R_3rdgenThe monster from Japan.! I own a R34 and have wanted one for ages, however, the more I see the R32 the more it grows on me, I think it looks great in this grey but if it was to be perfect it would need the R34 ass on it.! For what this car achieved back in the 80′s it has to be called a supercar.

Datsun 280z

Datsun-280z

This car has character in my opinion, I love the lines, the way the lights are cut into the wings and once again those flared arches.!
The Datsun 280Z also called the Nissan Fairlady Z and was produced in the late ’70′s. The engine size was a 2.8 litre, by enlarging the bore of the L26 engine to create the L28, and a reliable Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system was added. Power was 170bhp at 5600rpm.

Nissan GT-R

Nissan-GT-R-2012The Nissan GT-R is personally one of my most favourite cars. If I held the winning lottery ticket it would be the first car I would buy, which I would drive to the Aventador garage.! Having owned Nissan 200sx (S13) and now my Skyline R34 I definitely have a soft spot for these iconic Japanese cars.
The 2013 GT-R has a 3.8 litre twin turbocharged V6 engine that produces 550PS@6400rpm.
