In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:

The slinky S13 Silvia didn't just come out as a two-door coupe, a three-door hatchback version known as the 180SX was also produced by Nissan, but, sadly, never went further afield than Japan. Naturally, it shares many of its sister's mechanical components; for example, a suspension made up of independent MacPherson struts at the front and a sophisticated rear multi-link set-up, five-speed manual transmission and a two-litre, double overhead camshaft engine that drove the rear wheels. This car is actually considered to be a decent driver's tool rather than just a variation on the body shape and styling. The 180SX received extensive modifying and tweaking, with its image becoming more and more sporty until 1995, by which time there were three models. All the cars came adorned by revised front and rear spoilers for a more aggressive look and marginal aerodynamic benefits. A basic version, the Type S,[1] has a normally-aspirated four-potter that kicks out a not inconsiderable 158 BHP and 139 lb/ft of torque. Sportier still, the next one up the range is the 180SX Type R[2] complete with a turbocharged version of the same engine, which boosts the power up to a ruddy-checked 217 BHP while torque gets beefed up to 202 lb/ft. This same turbocharged engine powers the more luxurious, top-of-the-range Type X,[3] which also has alloy wheels. The classic sports car layout is to have the engine in the front, with drive going to the rear wheels, the 180SX has just such a layout, endowing the car with a superb balance and also the potential for some grin-inducing tail-out antics. Like its coupe counterpart, the steering and gearchange are fast and accurate. It may not be the hairiest of cars, but it's comparatively light, comparatively powerful, well balanced and, of course, the car has Nissan's reputation for reliability[4] as standard.
