Chassis no. FK10001118. Topaz Mist with white roof over white leather piped in gray. RHD, automatic, hub caps, factory CD/cassette stereo, air conditioning.

Evaluation: Showing 110,202 km (68,476 miles). Rebuilt turbo, rechromed bumpers, new dash, new roof, and new brakes. Solid paint. Tidy underneath. The only serious sign of age is a flat bottom and a few tiny rips in the driver’s seat, but the rest of the interior looks great.

Bottom Line: A clear nod to the past with its retro styling and 1960s-style interior, the Figaro was only around for the 1991 model year and Nissan limited production to 20,000 units, delivered via a lottery system. They were available in four colors (Lapis Grey, Emerald Green, Pale Aqua, and Topaz Mis), one for each season. It may be a boring econobox underneath with front-wheel drive and a 3-speed automatic, but their looks are seriously charming.

They’re also proof that Skylines aren’t the only JDM cars that Americans are clamoring to import and pay increasingly high prices for. Figaros turned 25 years old (and therefore legal to register in the U.S.) in 2016 and even as more make their way across our borders their prices continue to rise. $33,000 for one with this kind of mileage suggests that they aren’t done climbing.
