A PIECE OF ART

by FARCEPTS from Philly on Thu Nov 04 2010

The 97 240sx (aka Silvia to the rest of the world) is one of the most treasured sports coupes to come from Japan. With its sleek, aggressive & timeless design, it is a sports car that will always turn heads where ever you go. Its 2.4 in-line engine has great low end tourqe, but lacks top end speed and power. But that can be fixed for the right amount of money. The 240sx is one of the best handling rear wheel drive cars ever to hit the asphalt. With its near 50/50 weigth ratio, hitting corners and driving thru twisty roads with this car is a blast. I've owned my 97 for over 10 years. It has never given me any issues. I bought it used with 48K. And it now has 110K. It gets alot of attention when I drive it out and about. I get alot of offers to sell from both mature and younger drivers. It always amazes me that everytime someone see this car, they think its a newly released model out of the factory. That to me says that the design of this car is timeless. I did some mechanical modification to it to help it reach its full potential. (coilovers, intake, exhust, boost, upgraded brakes, lighter aftermarket rims) But have left the body stock.(other than adding the stock nissan factory lip to the front, which usully comes with the car until too many customers complained about ground clearence, and was pulled) I figure....why mess with perfection. Definitly a great car to have. A rare car to find in good condition. Will definitly be a classic if not already. If you can find one in good condition.....buy it!

excellent car

by Big Dave from san antonio on Fri May 29 2009

Very rare 97 model, excellent but can but tricky with old or substandard tires. A little underpowered but, can be fixed with a Greddy turbo kit with good reliability unlike other kits. Keeping mine because it may become a classic import one day. I recieve more interest in this car and offers to buy by both young and old than my awesome show car ready 350z, and I've have this car since new since 1997.

ONE OF THE FINEST CARS EVER BUILT

by LEO WALLY from NEW YORK, N.Y. on Thu Apr 12 2018

AN ENGINE DESIGNED TO GO MORE THAN 500,000 MILES. A BODY MADE OF DURASTEEL THAT IS SIMILAR TO STAINLESS STEEL AND CAN'T RUST. AN INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR DESIGN THAT WILL NEVER BE DUPLICATED. ALL THIS IN ONE CAR !!
