The 2000 Nissan Silvia Spec-R is a rear-wheel drive sports car that has appeared in every main title of the Forza series since Forza Motorsport.
The Spec-R is the highest model designation of the S15 Silvia, the last model generation of sports cars based on Nissan's S platform. Similar to the previous top-of-the-line S14 model, the Spec-R was equipped with several aerodynamic upgrades and powered by a two litre turbocharged engine.
The S15 Silvia was produced from 1999 to 2002 and only available in Australasia.
Driving this JDM masterpiece can be a transformative experience. With enough power to conquer any road it encounters and the kind of sleek lines normally reserved for chorus line girls, the Silvia turns heads wherever it goes.
The Silvia Spec-R reuses the SR20DET codenamed turbocharged engine from previous Silvia model generations, but with a power increase to 250 hp (186 kW). It is also shorter and lighter than its predecessor, the Nissan Silvia K's Aero, as evident by having 40 lb (18 kg) less weight. In addition, the Spec-R is based on a more balanced chassis due to having only 51% of its weight on its front axle. The manual transmission of previous models was replaced by a six-speed version.
The Horizon Edition is a special variant that appears as a Horizon Wheelspin reward in Forza Horizon 3. It features a drifting skill boost and various performance upgrades, most notably a 2.6 litre twin turbo engine swap from the Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II (R34) and a Rocket Bunny widebody kit. As a result, it has its performance upgraded to Class A but can be upgraded further to the top of Class S1 (900) with a preset.

The Silvia Spec-R is a nimble sports car that allows players to pass corners quickly with little efforts, although it does have a small chance of oversteer, which can be easily counteracted by players. Its engine works most effectively at high rpms as it only produces (203 ft·lb (275 N·m)) of torque, which can affect acceleration on uphill roads.
In Forza Horizon 3, the Horizon Edition variant with the S1 class upgrade preset offers 748 hp (558 kW) and 565 ft·lb (766 N·m) of torque. The Horizon Edition combines its high power output with a decent handling tune, allowing it to drift at sharp angles and regain speed quickly with little difficulties. It also performs well in grip-based race events but requires good throttle management skills to be mastered.
