Burlapp Cars around L.A: Nissan Figaro
I have always been a big fan of the Nissan Figaro. Although I had never seen one in real life.
Until a few days ago.
This one is in a store, downtown Los Angeles. As a display, but somehow is also for sale ($16 000)
In person, it is as charming and special as you’d imagine.
The attention to detail is amazing.
I realized that most people who don’t know what it is, think it is an actual old car.
The Figaro was produced in 1991. They made a total of 20 000 (8000 were originally planned)
All are powered by a small 1.0 Liter engine are based on the Nissan March.
The design was mainly influenced by French and Italian designs from the ’50s and ’60s.
Like the Peugeot 403 convertible. Mostly known as Columbo’s car.
I actually do wish I had an extra $16 000 to get this… It might be weird driving around here since the steering wheel is on “the other side”. But I bet you get used to it.
And being a small Nissan from the 90’s it is probably pretty reliable and easy to maintain.
