Most expensive Micra meant for Barbie

A British car dealer has what it believes will become the most expensive Nissan Micra ever sold. Yes, even more expensive than the Conran designer version we told you about earlier this year. The Micra C + C (coupe and cabriolet) in question is one of 275 special edition pink Micras made to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer, a breast cancer charity.

Although the normal asking price on this diminutive cab is only £14,750 (that's about 28 grand, US), the ace in the hole for this particular C + C is the license plate. is hoping that some Barbie lover will also want this personalized number plate as part of the deal. And apparently, the 'BAR81E' plate is worth more than the car!

If the Micra is sold with the number plate, it might bring as much as £36,250! That's almost $70,000, folks. A lot of cash for the car, but its limited edition nature and the unique plate will surely attract a buyer. And with at least £250 pledged to Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the buyer will be able to feel good about themselves too.

Seems like a golden, erm, pink opportunity for some Barbie wannabe. Full release after the jump.

"When Steve Jackson from approached me and asked if we would display the vehicle with their BAR81E numberplate – it seemed a fantastic idea and a great way to promote the 'Breakthrough' campaign.
