Nightlight | Poisonous 200SX

February 2, 2011

Night-Import: Photography by Rich McKee


It's always a pleasure to have an exclusive feature done by our photographers. Most of our 'spotlights' are cars owned by individuals, which are highly respected because of modifications and visual aspects. But an even more exclusive feature will have to be the ones that are recognized by almost every automotive enthusiast or let's just say...a promo car for a major car show.
This is when Mark's 200SX comes into the spotlight.


Modified Nationals is one of the biggest modified car shows in the UK and being one of the promo cars for the show is like standing on top of a stage for a commencement speech. Not will you only get attention from all directions but also being one of the most recognizable cars.
Mark's 200SX has come a long way, starting with a Toyota Celica and another previously owned 200SX, and this year, with the help of Elite Bodyworx, the newly down 200SX came out flawless.


What you see so far is not even half of its sexiness. Inside the hood is a finely tuned SR20DET with a HKS Roller Ball Turbo, pulling around 400bhp. Unlike others who cram in useless products in the engine bay, Mark's engine is full of win, such as the HKS Intercooler, Greddy Intake Piping Set, and T&E Up-Swept Manifold creating an even more powerful car.



To accommodate the wide staggered set of SSR Agle Minerva 17x9 & 18x10 wheels, the rear quarter panels were added with Version Select 25mm fenders and the fronts with 30mm Wide Vented fenders, part of the BN Sports Bodykit for the 200SX.


Almost everything in a promo car is modified to perfection. Running on Kei Office Drift coilovers followed by Cusco suspension related products, not only is the car looking like a beast but performs like one as well.

Bride seats were reupholstered to match the body color and to represent Modified Nationals.
