Cool £150,000 for Nissan Micra

£150,000 Nissan Micra 350SR That makes it in the league of supercars!

Micra has a 3.5-litre V6, 310bhp, 1275kg! and the size of swift or so.
60mph in around 5 seconds and reach a top speed of around 150mph.

Why cant Ford launch this car in India ( Nissan belongs to ford right? )



and guess wher the engine is. hehe.

£150,000 for a Micra? Absolutely ridiculous! Luxury saloons with more power are a lot. lot cheaper. Even a proper supercar like the Aston Martin DB9 is much cheaper.
What more, personally, I find the Micra very ugly. Waste of money!

No thanks!

Nissan does not belong to Ford... but Aston Martin does!

Wrong. Renault owns part of Nissan, not Ford. Ford owns part of Mazda.

Me too. Actually, I would spend 15000 more and go for a Noble M12GTO. Or a bit more and go for a M400. Or a bit more and go for a 911 Carrera S. Or abit more and go for a 430. Or a bit more...actually no need anythign more, I think the 430 should do lol!!

PS: THIS THING IS COSTLIER THAN THE 430?

it is exactly how that stupid brabus smart or A-class went for some few hundred thousand USD because they were made 10 in number...smart/A-class is a POS and now pay few hundred thousand for a supped up POS..wow!!

this falls in the same POS category..
