Nissan Silvia General Information

Very rarely used in group2, see group4 version.

Note: I have to admit to struggle identifying Datsun models. Trust the Japanese to call a model "Datsun Violet 160J KP710" (Sorry to say it this way, but it is not only Nissan/Datsun, another official Japanese model name: Fuji Heavy Industries Impreza WRX STI Type-RA, not to forget the 22B/GC suffix for the generation). Further, the nice attachments as "120Y, 160J, 180B..." do on occasions identify a whole model range, on other occasions just a small variation of a model. 180B is a 1.8 litre Bluebird, so far nice idea! A 240RS however is only the top range 2.4 sports version of the Silvia S110! On the Fairlady, where the "Z" is even more famous than its model name, the 240Z & 260Z indeed identifies the engine size. In turn the Silvia 200SX, the successor of the S110/240RS, this again is in all variations called 200SX, even though it is only available as a 1.8 Turbo or a 3.0 V6! If you are still not confused, for a while Datsun rallies the models "Violet GT" & "Violet GTS" alongside each other. But while the Violet GT is a derivate of the Violet 160J PA10(!), the Violet GTS is not a Violet at all, but a re-badget Silvia! And of that Silvia soon versions are rallied that indeed are called Silvia. Sorry, I myself find this confusing, and the situation is not helped when during research I obviously don't have photos with every single entry.
