Nissan Figaro Wiki

The Nissan Figaro is a front-engine, front-wheel drive, retro-styled two-door, fixed-profile 2+2 convertible manufactured by Nissan for model year 1991, and marketed in Japan at Nissan Cherry Stores.With its design variously attributed to Naoki Sakai and/or Shoji Takahashi, 20,000 examples were marketed by Nissan in the convertible's single year of production — all with right hand drive.Because of its origins at Pike Factory, Nissan's special project group, the Figaro (along with the Nissan Pao, Be-1 and S-Cargo) are known as Nissan's "Pike cars," and represented a design strategy that adapted "design and marketing strategies from other industries like personal electronics."In 2011, noted design critic Phil Patton, writing for the New York Times, called the Pike cars "the height of postmodernism" and "unabashedly retro, promiscuously combining elements of the Citroën 2CV, Renault 4, Mini and Fiat 500."
