Nissan Figaro FK10

customer feedback

2 cars incl. 1998 Nissan Skyline GT-T sedan

I was lucky enough to see my car come up for sale on the J-Spec mailing list at a bargain price, and from the previous experience of my partner importing a Silvia through J-Spec I had no reservations about contacting J-Spec straight away. Ben sent me approx. 80 photos of the car, kept in contact throughout the entire process and answered every question (no matter how silly it may have sounded), he really put my mind at ease. I was lucky enough to have J-Spec personally inspect and test drive the car for in Japan before I purchased it. They recommended a great compliancer once it landed and the whole process was made very easy. If there isn't a car on their mailing list that takes your fancy - tell them every minute detail (model, colour, options, etc.) and they will track down exactly what you need.

Nissan Figaro (FK10)

The Figaro is a small retro car manufactured by Nissan. The car was originally sold only in Japan but despite this, the Nissan Figaro has become popular with celebrity owners in the UK and other countries where second hand Japanese imports are available. Due to its unique styling the car has also featured in science fiction television programs such as Caprica, The Sarah Jane Adventures and Doctor Who.

The Figaro was introduced at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show under the slogan "Back to the Future". It was built by a Nissan special projects group called Pike Factory who also produced other niche automobiles such as the Be-1, Pao and S-Cargo. It was designed by Shoji Takahashi, who won a design competition with the car.

Only four colours were available: Topaz Mist, Emerald Green, Pale Aqua and Lapis Grey with each colour symbolizing a season of the year. The Figaro was equipped with leather seats, air conditioning, CD player and a open roof. The engine is a turbocharged 1000cc in-line 4 cylinder (MA10ET) which gets good fuel economy.

Only 8,000 were originally available with an additional 12,000 added to production numbers to meet demand. Prospective purchasers had to enter a lottery to be able to buy one of these cars.
