Nissan has teamed up with Breakthrough Breast Cancer to mark the tenth anniversary of the charity’s flagship campaign, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, and designed a one-off Micra C+C in glittering gold to mark the occasion.
The 1.6-litre Sport model has been customised by former Atomic Kitten star Jenny Frost. In addition to the standard equipment including electric windows all round, manual air conditioning and a mild body-kit modelled on the Micra 160SR, Jenny has added her own special touches. The 16-inch graphite alloy wheels have been replaced by 17-inch rims and the usual sports seats have been trimmed with luscious purple leather with gold stitching to complement the unique exterior paint job.
Jenny also indulged her passion for music and film and replaced the standard six speaker CD radio with an entertainment unit by Alpine Electronics, which not only plays CDs, DVDs and MP3s, but also has the added advantage of a built in satellite navigation system worth over £5000. That’s all in addition to the Auto Open Roof™ system, which gives you open top motoring in just 22 seconds at the touch of a button.
And, just in time for the summer, Jenny has included a picnic hamper and a fridge in the boot, perfect for festivals and lazy days in the park. But, knowing the British weather, Jenny has also included an umbrella in the car, just in case! Even if it does rain, the feeling of open air motoring can still be enjoyed thanks to the unique-in-class C-View glass roof. Jenny’s final touch is her signature in the same gold stitching embroidered into the floor mats.
One lucky shopper will be able to win this unique gold Micra C+C in a fundraising competition for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Jenny will be taking it on a tour of the country where it will form the centrepiece in a series of fashion shows in major shopping centres. Shoppers will be able to see shows featuring the latest high street looks and have the opportunity to enter the competition to win the Micra C+C while making a donation to the charity’s campaign.
The tour hits the runway on 6 May 2006 at the Queens Arcade in Cardiff before strutting on to Manchester, London (Lakeside), Newcastle, Birmingham and Glasgow.
