1999 Nissan Silvia Spec R S15

Today I picked up my 1999 Silvia from the depot. Firstly, the car matched the condition that was stated and shown in the pictures, which was one of my main concerns about importing. However, knowing that Ben and his team can deliver as promised, I will have no hesitation about importing again.

Secondly, I would like to highlight that my case was somewhat different to the average person importing a car. During the process of importing I was deployed in Afghanistan, which created some difficulty in communication and placed a lot of strain on times and availability. Ben, my hat goes off to you for being flexible and understanding to my situation. A very big Thank you. There are a lot of importers out there, and J-Spec is the King of the biz!

Toyota Blade Master

The Blade Master is based on a Toyota Corolla and shares the same sillhouette, but don't be fooled by the comparison. While the Corolla can come with an engine as small as 1.4L, the Blade Master shoehorns a 3.5L V6 engine into the engine bay, turning this into a 206kW / 344Nm powerhouse. This is the same 2GR-FE engine as found in the Toyota Aurion, Lexus ES350, Lexus RX350, Toyota Kluger, RAV4, Tarago/Estima, and many others. Aside from Lotus putting this engine into the Evora, the Blade is easily the smallest of the Toyota lineup to to get this powerplant, and an engine capable of pushing along large vehicles like the Lexus RX350 or Tarago comes alive in such a small vehicle that weights hundreds of kilos less.

Power is to the front wheels via a paddle shifted tiptronic 6 speed auto gearbox, with stability control and traction control (with hill start assist) as standard. As well as the huge power increase the Blade is also improved over the Corolla with a far more luxurious finish including alcantara/suede dashboard and door trims, alcantara seats, a number of luxury features, and performance is also improved with larger brakes and improved sports suspension. The Blade also has different bumper and side skirts, 17 inch wheels, and different headlights and tail lights.


The base Blade Master model comes standard with 6 speed auto, paddle shifters, alcantara dashboard and doors, stability control, traction control, front and side airbags, brake assist, electronic brake distribution, multi light ceiling illumination, smart key access, push button start and 17 inch wheels as standard. The Blade Master G is the slightly higher spec version with adaptive radar cruise control, alcantara seats, power seats and dual zone climate control.

3.5L V6 variants are importable, 2.4L versions are not.
