As seen in Need for Speed: ProStreet, the Silvia is an excellent car for drifting due to its acceleration and accessible handling. It performs well in race events too, but may be lacking when put against other Tier 2 cars in Need for Speed: Shift. Similar to the Nissan 240SX, upgrades might be needed to improve its racing performance.
Need for Speed: WorldEdit
The Nissan Silvia (S15) was added into the car dealer in Need for Speed: World during Closed Beta 4 on April 30th, 2010 along with the Nissan 240SX. It was classed as a Tier 1 car, but has been rated as a Class E car since August 22nd, 2012.
The Silvia is one of the first vehicles the player can buy. It is purchaseable for 175,000 and featured with an overall rating of 212. However, as of the January 8th, 2013 update, this variant is no longer available for in-game purchase.
Despite possessing a lower car rating than the Nissan 240SX, the S15 is capable of a higher top speed (123 mph/198 km/h). The Silvia has a responsive handling, which can be greatly enhanced with upgrades. Upon exiting a corner, it can also outmatch most Class E due to a good acceleration.
The S15 Silvia is one of the best in-game cash purchaseable starter vehicles, as it has more power than the Toyota Corolla GT-S and better steering feedback than the Mazda Mazdaspeed3. It also performs well in every performance class up to Class B, as upgrades are highly beneficial to the car. In pursuit events, it has less durability than heavier cars, but is capable of performing quick manoeuvres.
Before the game was offically launched to the public, players could obtain the Nissan Silvia in a "Speedhunters" variant by preordering the starter pack from Direct2Drive or Direct2DriveUK. The Speedhunters version is equipped with a body kit, new rims, decals and a lowering kit.
On October 28th, 2011, a Cop Edition version called the "Touge Cop" was released. The Touge Cop was shortly unavailable in the car dealer until August 29th, 2012, when it was re-released for 1,600.
It has functional police lights, which can be activated upon pressing "L", a Japanese police paint job, a series of aftermarket parts including a unique licence plate and is fitted with Gromlen race tuned upgrades. The car appears as a Class C vehicle with an overall rating of 438. The Touge Cop can reach a top speed of 167 mph (269 km/h).
- Before the Version 5 patch was introduced in Need for Speed: World, the car had an excessively powerful nitrous boost, which was criticised by players for making the car superior to its entire Tier 1 competition. After the patch was applied, it received a moderate nitrous boost.
