• 2000 Nissan S15 Silvia Lightning Strikes Racing Edition by JUM Lightning

The 2011 Toyko Auto Salon was held back in January and somehow this doozy of a car slipped through the cracks. Built off of a 2000 Nissan Silvia, the Lightning Strikes Racing Edition gets taken to a much better place with a bright blue exterior paint job, a monstrous power upgrade, and a spectacular widebody kit.

The original Nissan Silvia was powered by an SR20DET engine prepped with an output of 250 HP. Once JUM Lightning popped the hood and worked their magic, that same engine was able to produce 180 HP more, leaving the grand total at 430 HP at 7000 rpm and 398 lb-ft of torque at 5800 rpm! Finishing the engine work is a 6speed gearbox from Nismo GT-LSD.

As for the exterior, JUM Lightning matched the aggressiveness of the engine with a full on widebody kit and an Aragosta Suspension System that was specifically tuned for the FUJI Speedway. The kit is made from dry carbon fiber to support large forces and includes a front bumper, side bumper, a flow rate mounted on the bonnet, and a new set of wheels. Final touches comes as a full titan exhaust manifold, Sparco seats, and Brembo brakes.

Me, I would actually want to see more of these old designs come back. These are definitely some of the best rides that I have seen and they will be some of the most memorable.

What a car? I don’t like it’s appearance, it was so old fashioned designed.
And there’s no difference to other nissan cars I’ve seen before.

This one is perhaps one of the best looking Nissan car that I have seem. Even if it is quite old, they were still able to make it rather sporty and much faster.

As I see it, there is no difference with the old Silvia of Nissan. But the exterior paint job, a monstrous power upgrade, and a spectacular widebody kit is truly amazing.

I really can’t imagine how they were able to make this car an even better on. The Silvia is really good, but I never really thought of it as a racer. Well now, I was proven wrong.

Well, for a rather “old” model, this one is still one heck of a car. Though the increase in engine output isn’t really that much, it is still enough to get the car going. The only thing that I don’t like is that huge spoiler.

And that’s the reason why I love aftermarket version. For they completely satisfied our desire for a more high speed performance and great details!

WOW! As expected from a Japanese tuning company! I’m really expecting a higher increase in the speed performance of this car. And I’m not really disappointed in fact I was impressed with the 180 hp boost output in this car!
