Pink Nissan Micra C+C limited edition

February 27, 2007

The launch of the limited edition  pink Nissan Micra C+C convertible is part of Nissan’s Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity campaign.  During the tour the car attracted so much attention and demand, Nissan decided to make 100 of them available to eager buyers at 14,495 GBP.

The powder pink version is unapologetically aimed at the female driver, but  the other colours in their Micra range are equally appealing.

The car has an innate appeal, boasting a two piece  folding metal and glass roof and a cute friendly visage. The car has a lot of appeal and an endearing personality.

Lowering the roof is as simple as pressing a button on the centre console and it automatically folds away in 22 seconds flat!!   German convertible specialists Karmann,  can take credit for the design of the drop top.

The Nissan Micra C+C was first seen at the Paris Motor Show in 2002,  and was later to feature at the British Motor Show as a concept car later that year.

Due to it’s overwhelming popularity it was officially launched by Nissan in January 2003.  It is built out of the British Sunderland factory,  and with it’s compact dimensions, and reputation as a stylish urban supermini looks like a winner particularly in UK and European markets.

The history of the Nissan Micra  harks back to Japan in 1983.  Having enjoyed impressive sales in it’s very first year of production,  production shifted to Britain in 1992 for the second gen Nissan Micra.  It’s potential appeal to the European market was apparent, although it’s body shape has changed somewhat.   The body had a more square appearance and when the second gen model went into production in 2002 in Sunderland,  the vision was for a more rounded body with a more spacious interior, to appeal to younger generations.  The new model was offered with a 1 or 1.3 litre engine and a host of new accessories.

It won the European Car of the Year in 2003.
