Silvia Super Silhouette

Here is some history for you guys, because GrandJDM is still offline. I always used to have my dosis of old school vintage cars form GrandJDM but as they seem to have lost the battle with the hackers, please pay them a visit and help them out.the link to their can be found in my blogroll or below this post.

This is the machine driven by K. Hoshino at the Fuji Super Silhouette races (held between 1979 and 1984). Super Silhouette cars looked like production cars outside, but sported Formula car engineering inside. In accordance with international Group 5 regulations, the engine was the same twin-carb LZ20B (570PS) used in the Skyline Super Silhouette


Did you always wonder where the Bosazuka guys got thier inspiration from? After seeing this car there is no doubt. Offcourse the Bosazuka boys took their bodykits a step further, but this is where it al started. Here are a two video’s from this legendary machine, I hope you will enjoy, I sure did.

They managed to get 570ps from a two liter engine. The torque these engine’s produced was maybe even more impressive, 539nm to be precise.
