Rare Nissan March Super-Turbo – supercharged and turbocharged 1000cc 4-cylinder with 5-speeed manual transmission and nice Nismo wheels.
Starts right up and runs and drives fairly well – but needs a tune and probably turbo-seals. Turbo smokes on max boost / high RPM and appears to have boost leaks causing power loss after supercharger reaches .7 bar at low RPM. Body is straight and essentially rust-free but interior partially stripped to allow for additional chassis braces. Neat car deserving of a light restoration.

This car came with either a 3-speed aoutomatic or 5-speed manual gearbox with viscous limited slip differential, as well as options such as air conditioning and electric mirrors. The Micra Superturbo still holds the crown for the fastest production Micra in Nissan’s history, with factory performance figures of 7.7 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and 15.5 seconds to run a quarter mile. It has a top speed of 180 km/h (112 mph).
