Car description



I purchased and imported this Nissan Figaro late last year. I had the vehicle converted to left hand drive at a shop in Japan and then subsequently imported here to Ohio. The car has a clean Ohio title and has gone through all of the importing processes. After arrival from Japan, I had the stereo rebuilt at the clarion factory and is now identical to the original model but with all of the modern features you would find on a new car (ie. Bluetooth, aux port, etc.). I also had the car's paint corrected and any dents removed. The car then both received an extensive detail inside and out and high end coatings both in and out. I also had the engine detailed and the turbo heat shield powder coated. I also installed a battery cut off switch, and replaced the speakers with upgraded Alpine units. I replaced any bulbs that burnt out. I have a box full of extra parts for the cars as well. This vehicle for sell is in the Lapis Grey color-way. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. THERE ARE ONLY A VERY SMALL HANDFUL OF LHD VEHICLES IN THE WORLD. Thank you.


It was also featured on the new season of Jay Leno's Garage (Season 5, Episode 4 "Modern Icons").

Brief history of the Figaro (via Wikipedia):

The Nissan Figaro is a front-engine, front-wheel drive, retro-styled two-door, 2+2, fixed-profile convertible manufactured by Nissan for model year 1991, and marketed in Japan at Nissan Cherry Stores.

With its design variously attributed to Naoki Sakai[1] and/or Shoji Takahashi,[2] 20,000 examples were marketed by Nissan in the convertible's single year of production[3] — all with right hand drive.[4]

Because of its origins at Pike Factory, Nissan's special project group, the Figaro (along with the Nissan Pao, Be-1 and S-Cargo) are known as Nissan's "Pike cars," and represented a design strategy that adapted "design and marketing strategies from other industries like personal electronics."[2]

In 2011, noted design critic Phil Patton, writing for the New York Times, called the Pike cars "the height of postmodernism"[2] and "unabashedly retro, promiscuously combining elements of the Citroën 2CV, Renault 4, Mini and Fiat 500."[2]

Nissan introduced the Figaro at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show, using "Back to the Future" as its marketing tagline.

Based on the first-generation Nissan Micra, the Figaro was manufactured at Aichi Machine Industry,[1] a special projects group which Nissan would later call "Pike Factory," which also produced three other niche vehicles: the Be-1, Pao and S-Cargo.

As a fixed-profile convertible, the upper side elements of the Figaro's bodywork remain fixed, while its fabric soft top retracts in conjunction with a solid panel with a defroster-equipped glass rear window. The fixed-profile concept is seen on other convertibles, including the Vespa 400 (1957), Citroën 2CV (1948–1990), the Nash Rambler Convertible "Landau" Coupe (1950), and the 1957 Fiat 500 — as well its 2007 Fiat 500 successor.

Based on the Nissan March platform, the Figaro uses a 1.0-liter (987 cc) turbocharged engine generating 76 hp (57 kW; 77 PS) and 78 lbâ‹…ft (106 Nâ‹…m) of torque through a 3-speed automatic transmission, front MacPherson struts, rear four-link coil spring suspension; rack and pinion steering, front ventilated disc and rear drum brakes.[5] The Figaro can reach a top speed of 106 mph (170.59 km/h). Weight saving front fenders are thermoplastic resin.[5]

Standard equipment included ivory leather seats with contrasting piping, air conditioning, CD player, chrome and Bakelite-style knobs, soft-feel paint on the dashboard top, chrome-trimmed speedometer with smaller inset gauges for fuel and engine temperature; and chrome-trimmed tachometer with inset clock.[5] The four available exterior paint colors represent the four seasons: Topaz Mist (Autumn), Emerald Green (Spring), Pale Aqua (Summer) and Lapis Grey (Winter).[5][6]

8,000 Figaros were originally manufactured, with an additional 12,000 subsequently manufactured to meet demand. Prospective purchasers entered a lottery to purchase a Figaro.[7] Limited edition cars came with passenger side baskets and cup holders.

As of 2018, more than 3,000 of the cars were registered as being in active use in Britain.[7]
