1991 Nissan Figaro... Cute little thing, rare, and was only sold in Japan




http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4zkFKzCfIM&feature=related for a vidoe that does a good job of showing it from all angles, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nissan_Figaro for the stats....

The engine was a turbo charged 1.0 liter, it came with air, a cd player, and a retractable roof. 32 mpg. It was only going to be a run of 8000 units, but the demand was so great they made 20000, and sold them by lottery.


Perhaps it was an attempt at countering the popular Mazda Miata, that started production in 1989 with 45 thousand made, and 95k in 1990. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda_Miata
