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.

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.
