Nissan Silvia CSP 311
Most people know the Nissan Silvia for its widely popular S14 and S15 versions from the ’90s. They became the definitive drift cars, but the Silvia was one of Nissan’s most legendary sports cars dating back to the mid-60s. Debuting in 1964 at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Silvia CSP 311 was a big step forward for this still obscure manufacturer. The car had European looks and proportions. It was a luxurious sports coupe by the Japanese standards of the time with rear-wheel drive. It was powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with 96 HP, giving it decent performance.
However, the first Silvia was an expensive car for the Japanese domestic market. They only sold 554, most of which stayed in Japan. Today, people regard it as one of the most influential early Japanese sports cars.
