Nissan Figaro

An independant review By Andy – The Classic car the British get enough of (April 2008)

classic cars and a few marques instantly to mind. Nissan, is unlikely to be one of them unless you the original Datsun 240Z or those early, MG-like roadsters.

One odd little Nissan of more recent times is, enjoying remarkable popularity in the UK as a classic. Never sold when new, hundreds of used models have imported and their value to go up year after year.

The car in is something called the Nissan , one of a handful of deliberately quirky which appeared at the end of the 1980s the company briefly went a phase of selling brand new cars for the Japanese home Known as Pike Factory these odd little limited vehicles were something of an for Nissan, which pulled the after a few short years of

The Figaro was the brainchild of Shoji a Japanese designer, who set about a retro-styled car that would all the charisma of a classic from the or 1960s but with modern features and reliability.

Under head-turning skin is nothing or less than a humble March (Micra in Europe), the first-generation small city beloved of hundreds of thousands of senior citizens. The Figaro did from a turbocharger, boosting to a heady 75bhp, which ample performance for the city, it is most at home.

The Nissan Figaro was offered in four body colours mist, emerald green, aqua and lapis grey, representing a different season of the and in their subtle non-metallic imitating paint schemes the era which inspired the car’s Today a popular shade to the Figaro is pink, although in my the standard colours are much in keeping.

Nissan originally to sell only 8,000 new in Japan but such was the car’s 20,000 ended up being and buyers had to enter a lottery to get hands on a new one.

The car’s popularity in the UK today is to fathom. Like Japan, drives on the left, so the tiny Figaro is perfectly suited for UK needing only a few modifications to be legal as a personal import.

The Micra mechanicals means it for ever and many spares are locally at low cost.

No model in back catalogue can possibly inspired the Figaro, and in many its styling is unique, although of it look like contemporary cars of the era, from to Sunbeams.

Nissan Figaro

One of the most delightful things the Nissan Figaro is its off-white interior, with other carefully purpose-designed to suit the ambience, such as a CD player a finish like Bakelite, looking instruments and chrome and a mother-of-pearl horn button. The car has a folding soft top with rear screen, making it more attention-grabbing with the down.

Media types and love it, needless to say, and a for example can fetch around ($16,000) – not far off the new price in in 1991.

As well as the Nissan Figaro, Pike Factory also in very limited numbers its retro small car, the Next, in 1989, the same as the Figaro was shown, came the utilitarian Nissan Pao (shown which also has a certain charm and was clearly inspired by models like the Renault 4 and 2CV.

A slightly different was a little “Noddy” van, the (the name is a pun on escargot, for snail), which is ideal for business trying to stand out in a in the city. Quite a few of these also made it round the to the UK.

The popularity of today’s retro-look new like the VW Beetle, Mini and 500 – made in huge by comparison – makes me if Nissan has missed a trick in not with its Pike Factory
