I'm not sure what to say...

However it makes this one look strangely more acceptable?

I can't believe Jaguar let them get away with such blatant copying of the front of the Mark 2

Mitsuoka do some really bizarre modern/retro mash up designs. http://www.mitsuoka-.../global/lineup/

 

That one above is the "Viewt" and is based on a Nissan Micra

There is also the "Himiko" which is based on a NC MX5

The Galue and Ryogi are also based off some Nissan sedans

Personally I like the front of it but the rest of the car is nothing like, if it were a good copy of a MK2 jag in miniature I would buy one and put it next to my real one in the garage.

I know someone with a Viewt :shy: , looks awful, it looks like a taxi from the side but that is insulting taxis. Thankfully it's rotten as a pear so it will soon be no more :highfive:

There is an extension to the original Micra boot floor with a warning sticker attached saying not to put items over 25kg on it O_O

25kg, sounds like a quality job then!

I think the boot is made of tin foil - maybe that was 2.5kg :-)

I wonder it they had a weight restriction on the Elf/Hornet boot floor extension? Probably no more than two university students :D
