Nissan Figaro – Quite small and quite cool when modded


I have a quite a soft spot for these japanese retro looking cars. Unfortunately they are a very rare sight here in Sweden and if Im lucky i might see one, once a year or so.

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

There is a handful Nissan Figaros rolling around here in Sweden. When you see the very nifty and cool Nissan Figaro in the video above, perhaps you too will get fond of it? I think they are both cute and cool.

The Figaro is just 3,7 meters long and weighs 810 kg. Not featherlight, but then its not a kei-car. Just a small, beautiful car powered by a 970cc turbo engine with 77Hp. That makes the car ready for 171 km/h in very good fashion. Yeah, the orange Nissan Figaro in the video looks stunning.
