This a car is a bsse car that alot of people in Japan use for drifting they
come in a number of varieties.
RWD, AWD Turbo non turbo but they are all 4 door and all from the factory are automatic.
the floor pan is bassed on the s13 but as with alot of japanese cars they share parts with the skyline and S13.
Why am I featuring them?
I find the Cefiro an interesting car that is able to be imported to Australia. not many people have heard of them so I thought I would start. I have actually got one coming as you might have seen on the front page they are quite affordable and make a nice unique car to have.
more up dates when my car gets here.
The cefiro comes from the factory with the rb series of motors from non turbo and turbo a common swap from them is the SR20 motor from the nissan s series as this give better weight distribution and also under japanese law they may have some cheaper insurance and regisration costs.
The a32 model is not eligable for import as they are already here in Australia know as the maxima and the a32 is front wheel drive not rear wheel drive.
They make a great cruiser or drifter as they are large any of the rb engines fit in them so they have quite a few power up options.
Well my cefiro arrived a little while ago it has live up to the expectations.
it feels so much more roomy inside compared to the Skyline and is great for a person like myself with a family.
mine is drifter it has a mechanical diff strong clutch tien coil over shock it is being complied and readied for the road as well speak but I did get to do some miles in it and it is great so comfortable fast with the mechanical diff the car handels differently although is has alot more control.
every one who see's it is amazed I have even been stopped in the street by people asking me about the car.
mine is also being fitted with a front mount intercooler and I will be fitting a larger turbo to it down the track. then the mods process will be complete.
