Up for sale is this one of a kind example of the legendary Nissan S13! Introduced in 1989, Nissan’s S chassis is internationally known as the go-to platform for drifting. It’s perfect weight distribution, front engine rear-wheel-drive layout and light curb weight made the S13 easy to drive and even easier to slide around. While the USA received the S13 in a naturally aspirated 2.4l configuration, the Japanese domestic market received a few more exciting engine options, namely the 1.8l turbocharged CA18DET, and the legendary SR20DET “redtop”. Because of the car’s popularity in motorsports, aftermarket companies were pumping out boatloads of performance parts for these vehicles. It got to a point where it was nearly impossible to find a stock example of these cars, everyone that owned one wanted in on the aftermarket parts craze. Body kits, spoilers, and of course a wide variety of engine upgrades flooded the Japanese import scene, with the S13 being the poster child for some of the latest and greatest innovations in aftermarket parts design. While many modified S13’s fell victim to abuse and cheap modification, especially in the USA, some examples, such as this one, appear to have withstood the test of time, and make excellent driver’s cars or even collector’s items today! This particular 1996 model year 180SX is an S13 done right. Optioned from the factory in highly desirable Type X trim (with super HICAS,) this is the crème de la crème of S chassis. Take one look at this car, and your eyes are immediately drawn to the aggressive, yet well-crafted GP Sports body kit. This S13 features the whole kit, including the front bumper, fenders, side skirts, rear over fenders, and rear bumper. The body, originally red, was resprayed in a light gunmetal grey finish. The paint and bodywork is immaculate and the grey really accentuates the aggressive body lines provided by the GP Sports widebody. We could go on and on about how this is one of the best looking S13’s we’ve ever seen, but we think the pictures speak for themselves. The rear of the car is accentuated thanks to the OEM Kouki taillights and custom center garnish. A set of 20” SSR Executor CV03 wheels look stunning tucked underneath the widebody. The previous owner clearly spared no expense when building this car and it shows. Open the door and the theme of well sorted high quality modifications extends well into the interior. All OEM plastics and fabrics are in excellent shape. The dash is in overall good shape, with only a minor crack directly over the gauge hood. Both driver and passenger seats have been replaced with matching Recaro SR6 reclinable buckets, providing comfort, performance, and style in one full package. A Nardi 3 spoke steering wheel is a classy accompaniment to the rest of the interior mods and feels great as you pilot this S13 down the road. The climate control is fully functional, and the vehicle even has working AC. A suite of 3 Defi gauges is cleverly affixed to the rearview mirror and displays oil temp, water temp, and oil pressure. An additional defi boost gauge is positioned to the right of the steering column. The original gauge cluster is fully functional as well, and the odometer displays an original 141,940 km’s (88,197 miles!). Pop the carbon fiber hood and you’re greeted with an absolute beauty of a red top SR20DET. This SR20DET has been extensively modified with quality parts and is set up at a perfect power level for street driving. The turbo has been upgraded to a larger Tomei unit and spools nicely thanks to an HPI intake system, greddy intake manifold, and Greddy front mount intercooler. An HPI exhaust header paired to a GP sports EXAS exhaust makes this SR20 sound incredible as you rip through the RPM range! Splitfire coil packs replace the finicky OEM system, and an Evolve radiator helps maintain cool engine temps under even the most demanding driving conditions. The vehicle suspension and drivetrain has been tuned to make this car powerful in the back roads, or even on a drifting circuit. 326Power coilovers keep this S13 planted in the corners, and the rear end has been swapped to a 2 Way LSD. An Ikeya Formula angle kit was also added for anyone looking to take this S13 to the drift track! Brembo brakes on all four corners stop on a dime and are an incredible upgrade over the stock calipers. Driving this S13 is as impressive as you’d expect. Despite the extensive mod list it functions beautifully as a street car and can really tear up the corners as well. Shifts through the 5 speed transmission are smooth and direct thanks to an aftermarket short throw shifter and twin disc clutch. It’s near impossible to find a clean, rust free 180SX this well sorted on the market right now, snag it while the opportunity is still available!
