Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. unveiled the Figaro at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show under the slogan "Back to the Future". In 1991, it launched limited domestic sales of the all-new Figaro, a compact coupe that follows the successful Be-1, Escargot and Pao niche cars. The sales volume were limited to 20,000 units.
The car was originally sold only in Japan. 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.
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 based on the K10 Nissan Micra aka March. Only four colours were available: Topaz Mist, Emerald Green, Pale Aqua and Lapis Grey. Each colour symbolised a season of the year. When the car was launched, topaz mist was the least popular colour. There were only 2,000 produced in Topaz mist hence they have become increasingly rare.
The other productions numbers were 6000 in Emerald Green, 6000 in Pale Aqua and 6000 in Lapis Grey. The four season's colors were Emerald Green was Spring, Pale Aqua was Summer, Topaz Mist was Autumn and Lapis Grey was Winter.
