We love hot hatchbacks and we love classic French cars. The Renault Super 5 GTE (Gordini?) ‘Supercinq’ looks very similar to the R5 Alpine and 5 Gordini turbos – as well as the R5GT Turbo’s we’ve brougt in from JAPAN. All follow a trusted formula – deliver high performance from minimal inputs.
We are unsure if this came from the Dieppe factory that Alpine and Turbo models came from – but will share more once we have it in-hand late-September.
From Wikipedia – A “hot hatch” version, the GT Turbo, was introduced in 1985. It used a modified four cylinder, eight-valve Cléon 1397 cc engine, a pushrod unit dating back to the 1962 original (in 1108 cc form). It was turbocharged with an air-cooled Garrett T2 turbocharger. Weighing a mere 850 kg (1,874 lb), and producing 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp), the GT Turbo had an excellent power-to-weight ratio, permitting it to accelerate from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in [...]
Comments Off on 1986 Nissan Silvia S12 RS-X / RS-R MkII
1986 Nissan Silvia (Gazelle) RS-R, with only 58,015 kilometers. This appears to have chassis code RBS12HFT which is the 2nd generation RS-X with the CA18DET – successor to the original FJ20DET powered Silvia RS-X. Both worthy successors to the famous 240RS Group B homologation special. Information is somewhat scarce on these cars – would be a great addition for your historic Nissan collection.
We’ll ship out of Nagoya for mid-September arrival in Seattle. Give us a call or drop us a line for more info or to secure this noteworthy piece if Nissan history!
Nice and simple Mitsubishi Minicab SDX 4×4 kei-truck with just 19,729 kilometers.
These Mitsubishi trucks are probably the most utilitarian of the small Japanese pickups. 660cc motor, 4-speed, and 4×4 with high/low range. With it’s 350kg payload and heater, this is a great alternative to a UTV like the Kawasaki Mule or Kubota RTV. Great for cabin, small farm, industrial yard, or as an urban hauler.
Will ship out of Japan the later 1/2 of August so should have in-hand early September.
