Nismo 270R

An interesting curiosity and quite a rarity. Only 50 examples of the Nismo 270R were built in 1994, and no-one really seems to know how many survive today. This is beyond cult car status - were it not for its inclusion in Gran Turismo 4, only a handful of people would have any idea what it was.
Based on the S14 Nissan Silvia, the 270R was tuned to produce 270bhp (as the name suggests), featuring a huge front-mounted intercooler, one of the strangest bonnet vents ever produced, a 2-way LSD, triple-plate clutch, and Nismo's 'Edge' bodykit. All fifty examples were black, with white wheels and 270R graphics. Have you ever seen one in real life...?

One thing's for sure... it's one of the very few cars in GT4 that'll actually drift properly.
