Americans don’t often get to sample Japan’s most interesting offerings. How long did we do without the Nissan Skyline GT-R? Even home-market variants of familiar vehicles like the Honda Civic typically look much better in their non-U.S. incarnations.
So a tip of the hat to Petrolicious reader Mr. Johnny Dixon for the head’s up on this Nissan Pao. Looking like a baroque Japanese wagon with a heavy dose of cute, it’s basically the completely pedestrian Nissan Micra underneath, another car never available in the U.S. Powered by a 1.0L four-cylinder and shifted by a five-speed manual, the seller says the Pao “… can actually go on the interstate highway, just not in the left lane!” although driving in the passing lane with a RHD vehicle would be somewhat disconcerting anyway. For a heavy dose of utility with a high fun quotient, the 12-foot Pao could be considered a modern Japanese iteration of the Citroen 2CV (dare we say Renault 4?) that can be serviced at the same place as your GT-R.
