Nissan Figaro. Summer in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Figaro was introduced at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show under the slogan “Back to the Future”. Production was between 1991 and 1992. It was built by a Nissan special projects group called the Pike Factory who also produced other niche automobiles Be-1, Pao, and S-Cargo.
The Figaro however was by far the most popular. Only four colours were available: Topaz Mist, Emerald Green, Pale Aqua, and Lapis Grey. Ironically the least popular was Topaz Mist, only 2000 were finished in this colour, which now has become the most sought after shade. It is fashionable now to completely re-colour a Figaro.
