Nissan Silvia S15 - Sittin' On Chrome

Full Specs aren't needed when there's a shiny S15 Silvia to drool over

Every once in a while when we're in Japan, we'll come across a car like this chrome S15 Silvia convertible. It's flashy and it's sexy, but we only have a Frodo-sized handful of specs to go along with the car. As so-called editors it really sucks for us because we can't give you the full scoop about the car. We really wanted to, we promise, but at least Wes took some badass pictures for you. Yes. It's a bright, shiny, chrome S15 Silvia convertible with an insane Alpine audio system and some other additional goodies to boot. Who cares if the only performance enhancer slapped onto the non-turbo SR20DE engine is a Tanabe exhaust? We don't. Hell, it doesn't even bother us that it's an automatic. Would we cruise this thing down Sunset Blvd. with the top dropped and bumping some old school Dr. Dre jams? You bet your sweet ass we would.
