    1992 - 180SX High Spec Drift Car

    Itís going break my heart to see this go but a growing family, work commitments, and property renovations are conspiring against me and I simply havenít got the time or spare cash to warrant keeping it.

    '92 180sx - CA car convert to SR in Japan. Originally imported and built by Paul (smokey) Smith in '06

    I bought the car off the guy who had from Paul in early '08 and I sold it in '09, Iíd spent a lot of money improving it but got out on track a fair bit and had a top 16 in the 2008 BDC British Open, I absolutely loved it. I was unfortunately forced to sell to afford my first house and was gutted to see the car go.

    I bought the car back from the guy I sold it to in '17 and he'd hardly used it and only done just a few hundred km's, basically he'd dry stored it for me for 8 years. I really couldnít believe my luck getting my car back in the same condition Iíd sold it.

    I've had the car back a couple of years and spent a fair bit on it at ProTuner on a custom engine wiring loom, R8 coils, ECU, and mapping.

    Mileage - 135k km (Mileage issues on MoT history are due to recording km's as miles, speedo is still in km)

    Nearly new tyres on all wheels

    Car has switchable boost and is running around 360bhp on high boost.
    Good condition but obviously itís a drift car not a show car. There's little bubble of rust on the rear arch but nothing major, and it has a small dent on the nearside rear but again nothing major. Dash has holes from old gauges and a couple cracks. Fire extinguisher and electric cot off could do with new pull cables. Only other negative is there's no heater matrix in the car, so no demist etc, little bit inconvenient if you want it as a daily, but the electric windows both work. The SSR wheels shown in some of the pics are not included, they've already sold.
    Basically in the last 10 years this car has done one Santa Pod practice day and a hand full of road miles. It has only done around 4000km since imported in í06. It'll make a great comp car for some lucky sole.

    Looking for around £8,500. Not interested in any PX sorry.

    Sorry for laziness but please see the ad on Driftworks for pics or get in touch.
