Nissan rally cars: 1988 Nissan Silvia 200SX


This Silvia (export name: Nissan 200SX) was driven by Mike Kirkland in the 36th Safari Rally of 1988; it came 2nd overall and also won the A4 class (over 2,000cc, 2WD). That year’s Safari Rally was very hazardous due to heavy rain preceding the event and only 14 cars completed the course, but the March won in the A3 class (1,600cc-2,000cc), making Nissan a 2-class champion.
