The Pink Figgy: A Darling Delight in Charleston
By Meredith Collins Pierce

Charleston, SC, known for its picturesque Rainbow Row and the majestic Ravenel Bridge, now boasts a new darling addition to its charm – a cute, little pink car named Fiona, also known as The Pink Figgy.

The Pink Figgy is a rare gem, a limited-edition Nissan Figaro that was exclusively sold in Japan in 1991, with only around 20,000 units produced. This blush-colored beauty is a two-door, right-hand drive, fixed-profile convertible, and yes, she is pink! Fiona made her debut in Charleston in March 2020 and has quickly become a beloved photography and event prop in town. You can often spot her striking poses along The Battery, in front of the iconic The Mills House Hotel, and making surprise appearances at various events throughout Charleston.

As the proud owner and creator of The Pink Figgy, I knew I had stumbled upon something truly special with the Figaro. I always say that one doesn’t have to be a car enthusiast or a lover of all things pink to appreciate the charm and quirkiness of “Figgy,” the affectionate nickname we’ve given to this delightful car. When I started this business, I realized that I couldn’t compete with the larger car rental companies and their vast fleets of vehicles. So, I knew I had to offer something unique, something that would captivate and charm. And that’s when The Pink Figgy came into the picture. With her soft pink hue and her fun and flirty demeanor, she became the perfect prop for photoshoots and events.

Over the past three years, Fiona has been a part of countless memorable moments, from senior portraits to engagement sessions, and even branding shoots. She never fails to turn heads, and when she’s not busy posing for photos, she spreads joy as she cruises through the streets of Charleston.
