For Sale: 1991 Nissan Figaro in Lithia Springs, Georgia


Vehicle Description

Every 1991 Nissan Figaro is quite special considering they were only made for one year, and they were never officially imported to the USA. But even amongst this exceptional rarity, you can find a truly unique example that stands above the others. There has been a solid investment in a custom restoration to make sure that everything you want is working (including the cold-blowing A/C,) as well as custom look inside and out. So this rare import is truly unforgettable.

The Nissan Figaro was a true dream car come to life. Nissan brought us back to an era that they didn't even get to fully embrace the first time around. It was a re-imagining of European small car icons like the Vespa 400 and Fiat 500. But these also had the extra brightwork and quality fit/finish that let you know these were premium retro machines. This example takes it all one step further. On its way from Japan, this car spent some time in England where a Figaro specialist shop spent over 300 hours working on the car. The first place you recognize the quality work is in the paint. This was given a custom metallic blue borrowed from Porsche. It has a terrific clearcoat luster, and it draws added attention to the contrasting white roof, side mirrors, and wheels. The body has a well-done precision fit like a well-cared Japanese machine, and you'll love it right down to the details, like the Figaro mud flaps.

The interior is all about premium sophistication. The restoration includes new blue leather that coordinates with the exterior custom paint. This is expertly intertwined with nice white on the seat piping, door panels, steering wheel, and more to deliver a thoughtfully uniform look. It's easy to share this custom interior with the world thanks to one of the Figaro's hallmark features. The entire roof panel folds back - everything from the top of the windshield to the base of the rear window. It stows neatly in the trunk, and will instantly make Fiat 500C owner jealous. In fact, it gives you the cool factor of the Vespa or a Citroen, but with modern Japanese build quality. This is a JDM car so you get features, like the right-hand drive position and a speedometer in kilometers reading only 83,577 KM! (it's gone less than 52k miles in it's lifetime!)This uniqueness means you'll love showing it off, and because of that, this special car also has the right creature comforts. It includes power windows, an alarm system, heated seats, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The radio has even been converted so that you can hook up your phone and/or enjoy modern Bluetooth.

Under the hood is a 1.0-liter motor. It's fuel-injected and turbocharged to deliver decent power. You won't win any drag races, but that was never the point about owing one of these cool cars. After all, you want everyone to see you in it. The restoration shop took plenty of time with the mechanical parts of the car, and so it runs terrific. Plus, while this is a low-production machine, the motor shares plenty with much more common Nissans. That means a sturdy construction and easier parts availability for years to come. Because this was built to be a cruiser, you also have easy driving features, like a three-speed automatic transmission and power brakes w/discs up front.

The sale comes complete with custom car cover, a shop manual, an English language operator's manual, and more. This is the ultra-rare car that has been upgraded to truly be a unique and outstanding modern classic. A chance like this may never come around again, call today!
