The Australian car scene is massive. With so much diversity between cars from muscle to euro all the way through to classics and custom rides.

In NSW, one of the biggest car cultures is in the form of Japanese made and inspired cars. Go to any big car meet up in Sydney and you will notice that a lot of the cars you will see are Nissan Silvia’s. Popular for track cars and street cars as there are plenty of aftermarket parts available for them, it is no wonder they are so popular in the car scene.

Andrew Mercuri: Andrew owned a street registered two tone s13 with old school drift look.

Andy Aghdasi: Andy owned this s15 with a track inspired look. The Work XD9’s and subtle mods work just as good on the street as on the track.

Davey Bartolome: Davey owned this crazy looking s15. Couple the aggressive styling with the sweet body shape of the S15, and you get one of the meanest street cars on Sydney roads.

Silvia republic Sydney member count is over 500 and climbing. Regularly attending events and shows including our own launch party. While attending these events, the guys are busy organising their own events such as cruises and meet ups for the community. These cruises and meet ups are perfect for chatting about peoples cars, making new friends who share the same love. The first event put on by the guys brought in over 100+ cars and same with the first cruise Silvia Republic organised. These events are not just for Silvia owners, but for anyone enthusiastic about Sydney’s car scene. With the Sydney member count climbing every day, you would be right to think the international member count would also be high, with 40,000 members and climbing. People from all around the world brought together by a common interest.
