Silvia(1966: CSP311)

The first generation Silvia CSP311 was rolled out as “Datsun Coupe 1500” at Tokyo Motor Show in 1964 and was released in 1965 as a Nissan car with the name Silvia, a goddess in Greek mythology. The exterior and interior were designed by Nissan internal designers (K. Kimura & F. Yoshida) with advice from then-consultant A. Goertz. The jewel-like styling was one of the features.

As few as approximately 550 units were built for 4 years because nearly seamless bodywork and elegant interior on chassis for Datsun Fairlady 1600 SP311 were semi-handmade. It was known as the pioneer of sports coupe and the first highway police car in Japan.
