A four door Silvia?? Never heard of one; S10 through S15...I thought the car was always a coupe. Besides, why would one want to drop in a JZ on a Silvia? No RBs?

The hood-line to the driver's side (non-damaged) is level and flat, quite unlike a Silvia. But maybe I'm wrong...

Could be a highly modded Esteem. The side profile looks too much like an Esteem.

You're joking/being sarcastic, right?

The bonnet of the car is much bigger than an esteem.

R33 anniv is 4 door. Also such power in an esteem, the chassis mods would be exorbitant. Doubt anyone would go through that much trouble. Car puts out min 500hp, however I'd think a closer estimate would be 600 from what I've heard. FWD and esteem chassis just wouldn't cut it.

Has to be RWD or AWD for effective handling.

Guys, Its a Nissan Cefiro. Search google and you will get a fair idea of what was being built.

Niki the cefiro is Nissan's flagship car. Not sure about really old models, but the current ones are even larger than the Teana. I doubt it's a cefiro dude...

But if it is it's probably an A31, which is an apt car for all the mods considering it's RWD, shared the same engine as the R32 skyline, and could drift circles around most saloons.

I wonder though how did a cefiro from the early 90s end up in India, doesn't seem like a car someone would import...

G : The car is definitely a Cefiro as she caught my attention when i had been to his place. She is long and wide. I was struck with awe when I saw her and was longing to see her after all the mods. But sad to see her now in this state.

Nikibusa you are right thats a Nissan Cefiro. I just compared the accident pic to 40th anniv 4drs R33, the side doesn't match.

Are you sure ? If yes, then this model is quite old. Probably the first generation one, as the later version's side profile do not match the car of TBHPian.

To me the car looks like R32 considering the quite long bonnet.

Today while coming back from somewhere, I saw a tow truck on the opposite side of the bypass. And guess what did I see getting towed??

I think this is the first one in India.

What took me by surprise was inspite of such an impact, none of the air bags had deployed.
