1986 ‘N13’ Nissan EXA (Pulsar NX)

Making its debut in 1986, the ‘N13’ Nissan EXA (dubbed Pulsar NX in some markets) wasn’t mechanically remarkable. Far from it - the car was front-engined and front-wheel drive, and in its entry-level form, made a paltry 70bhp from a single-cam GA16i engine. A modest 90bhp from the later 1.6-litre CA16DE N/A inline-four was also available with a CA18DE 1.8 making a more reasonable 130bhp. Production ended in 1990, with the EXA replaced by the considerably less attractive and cutely-styled ‘N14’ NX.
