Nissan Figaro - A beloved import from Japan
With its retro style, the Nissan Figaro can easily be mistaken to have come straight out of the 60s. But the Figaro is more recent than you think. Produced in 1991 for just a single year, you couldn't simply go to a dealer and buy this Nissan.
With only 8,000 produced at first, dealers struggled to keep up with demand and introduced a lottery system by which one could get a chance to purchase the car. In total 20,000 Nissan Figaros were produced and sold in a single year.
Here are a few reasons why the Nissan Figaro is a special car:
- Design: The Nissan Figaro is a stylish car with a retro design that is inspired by classic British cars of the 1950s. The car has a rounded body with a long, sloping hood and a short rear deck. The Figaro is also known for its two-tone paint job and its distinctive round headlights.
- Exclusivity: The Nissan Figaro was only produced for a single year, 1991, and only 20,073 were made. This makes the Figaro a very rare car, and it is highly sought-after by collectors.
- Affordability: Despite its rarity, the Nissan Figaro is relatively affordable, especially when compared to other classic cars. This makes it a great option for those who are looking for a stylish and unique car without breaking the bank.
- Fun to drive: The Nissan Figaro is a fun car to drive. It is powered by a small, 987cc turbocharged engine that produces 80 horsepower. This may not sound like a lot of power, but it is enough to make the Figaro a lively and enjoyable car to drive.
If you are looking for a stylish, affordable, and fun car, the Nissan Figaro is a great option. The car is sure to turn heads wherever you go.
The Nissan Figaro you see here was sold in Japan, and then made its way over to the UK. We imported this beautiful classic from Japan to San Francisco.
