customer feedback

1998 Nissan Skyline GT-T sedan

Hey Ben,

Skyline is now complied and registered. Thanks for all your help, you definetly made the importing process very simple and easy. The website is great and easy to use, i think that is a huge help in choosing a vehicle and being comfortable with knowledge on importing. The car was even better in person than in pics, and is completely immaculate inside and out. I got comments by the pit inspectors on just how immaculate it actualy was. Budget estimate was close, only complaince being in WA was a tad more expensive then estimated. I will definetly be recommending you to friends and using your services again on my next import.

Many Thanks.

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.
