Nissan 180SX/200SX/Silvia

These good-looking rear wheel drive coupes offer plenty of potential for power-hungry cruisers and drift enthusiasts.

Aftermarket tweaking generates big power from 1.8 or 2.0-litre engines, even though a standard 200SX delivers only 147kW.

Nissan Australia sold the S15 Series 200SX here from 1996 and values for later, low kilometre cars remain in the $15-20,000 bracket.

Similar money buys imported S15 Silvia coupes which tend to have bigger wings and wheels than the Aussie-spec 200SX.

Older Silvia and 180SX turbos sit at around $12,000 but can be suffering age-related problems.

Be careful not to buy a cracker of an engine surrounded by a car that’s falling to bits.

180SX 1989-97 $11,480 [40] 

200SX 1995-99 $14,510 [20]

200SX 2000-03 $18,150 [38] 

Silvia Turbo 1988-93 $11,335 [19]

Silvia S15 1997-99 $20,000 [23]
