The FIGARO was one of the three “Pike Car” models based on the first-generation of MARCH, and was a limited sale of 20,000 units through three lotteries.
As the term “Pike Car” refers to “a car with a particularly retro or radical design,” it was designed in a “rounded retro style.
The concept was “love supremacy,” and it was called “Tokyo Nouvelle Vague,” advocating a “new wave.
The car was named after FIGARO, the main character in Mozart’s opera “The Marriage of FIGARO”.
The car was equipped with the E-FK10 model and the TARBO version of the MA10ET engine (water-cooled inline four-cylinder OHC Nissan ECCS 1000cc 76ps/6000rpm, 10.8kgm/4400rpm).
It was a four-seater with a three-speed automatic transmission.
