The Nissan Figaro is a front-engine, front-wheel drive, two-door, 2+2 convertible manufactured for model year 1991, and marketed in Japan at Nissan Cherry Stores. Initially a production run of only 8,000 units was planned, however demand was exceedingly high and after two increases in production schedules a total of 20,073 Figaros were manufactured, all in right hand drive format as they were intended solely for the Japanese market. Even with the greatly increased production numbers, demand was so high that potential purchasers had to enter a lottery to win the chance to buy one. Based on the Nissan Micra K10 platform, the Figaro features a turbocharged 980cc engine, mated to a three-speed automatic gearbox. 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 glass heated rear window.
This Figaro is finished in Emerald Green with cream leather interior. With 92,344km on the odometer (57,379 miles) this Nissan have covered less than 2,000 miles a year. Presenting in very good order throughout, she has just had new brake discs and pads fitted, new rear brake shoes, two new tyres and a recent service. These quirky retro-style cars are good to drive and certainly create interest wherever they appear. With simple basic mechanics coupled with Nissan reliability a Figaro is a fun car and with reasonable running costs, it is sure to put a smile on your face when you drive it. Supplied with a V5C registration certificate and a full years MoT test certificate, this 2+2 convertible is offered for sale without reserve.
