I have spotted this car on several occasions around the village I work in and fell in love with it. Initially I thought it was a classic car then I thought it must be a kit, but then to my surprise I saw it sported a Nissan badge. Its turns out this is the ‘91 Nissan Figaro, designed by Shoji Takahashi, part of the Nissan’s special development team, the Pike Factory. It would seem that the trappings of Japanese collectables extend to cars, with only 20,000 made, in four colours, Topaz Mist being limited to 2,000 models. Its a turbo automatic and not exactly going to wow the petrol heads, but it sure looks cool.
