Lego Nissan Sileighty Rocket Bunny

Nissan’s current line-up is about as interesting as Kim Kardashian’s Twitter feed. But like said Twitter feed, it’s also very successful, with the Juke and Qashqai regularly entering into the top 10 best selling vehicles list in TLCB’s home nation. There was a time though when Nissan, whilst less successful financially, made cars that were far more interesting…

This is one such vehicle, the 180SX from the early 1990s. The SX has become a sought-after prize in tuning circles, and it’s a car that – thanks to the interchangeability of early ’90s Japanese parts – can be made to mix various bits of different ’90s Nissans rather well. This particular example is a ‘Sileighty’, which adds the front-end of a Silvia S13 with the rest of a 180SX. It’s also been fattened-up a bit by aftermarket tuners Rocket Bunny, and fitted with a hoofing great turbo.

Davanchi M is the builder behind it, and he’s done a brilliant job recreating the modified Nissan mix. There’s lots more to see, including an interior as good as the outside, at both MOCpages and Flickr – click the links to make the jump.
