Nissan don't just make cars. In fact they designed and manufactured the rocket launchers for Japan's interplanetary space probe, which is currently observing Halley's Comet.
The same advanced technology has gone into the production of the Silvia ZX Turbo.
A true sports car that performs as well as it looks.
0-60 in 8 seconds and 130 mph from the 1.8 fuel injected turbo. That's why Car Choice said "a blisteringly quick powerhouse". But the power has to be tamed so you can handle it all.
"Its excellent chassis combines sharp, well-balanced handling with an absorbent ride" wrote Motor Magazine.
They also found that "Nissan seem to have got it right where it counts: the Silvia grips the road in a way the Japanese never used to. Always poised, never once did it feel unsettled by a surfeit of power."
And all the time you're travelling in space, cossetted by sumptuous new seat fabric and trim, with stereo sounds that are out of this world... "A radio and cassette player imposing enough for Apollo XVI" said the Sunday Express.
