Nissan 180SX/200SX/Silvia market review from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Different slices from the same pie, the 180/200SX and Silvias remain very popular with local buyers of rear-wheel drive performance coupes.

A lot are set up for various levels of competition from drags and tarmac rally events to drifting; these cars reflecting the cost of development and modification in asking prices up to $50,000.

Most aren’t anywhere near that expensive and older 180SXs sit currently at around $10,000. Locally-sold 200SX versions have surged past imported S15-series Silvia turbos and can exceed $20,000 while S15 Silvias and mid-1990s 180SXs remain at $15-20,000.

The attractive Varietta with retractable top and no turbo typically sells at less than $20,000. They are rare too with just 1143 built.

180SX 1989-92 $9810 [17] 

180SX 1993-97 $16,860 [16]
