    ??? Japanese Mk11?

    Saw this parked in our road on Christmas eve and at first thought I'd had too much of the sherry until I realised I hadn't even had a drink.... Sorry about quality of photos but I had to enhance them a bit t0 see anything. Phone camera isn't very good in the dark.

    It is Japanese I think, does anyone know anything about it? I had no idea where the owner was to ask. It isn't a regular so must have been a visitor somewhere.

    I have seen one of these for sale. I can’t remember what it was called but I thought it looked awful: The proportions were all wrong.

    Done a bit of Googling and it seems it is a Mitsuoka Viewt - based on a Nissan Micra of all things. No sign of it now and according to the DVLA MoT site the MoT has expired so it probably only comes out at night

    Just as well! If that was supposed to be a copy of a Jaguar Mk11 then they should have gone to Specsavers!

    Built around a K11 Micra....so can have a 1.1 or 1.4cc engine.Most seem to have the larger engine hooked to a CVT type autobox.

    Quite convincing when seen in the rear view mirror,until they are very close!

    Let down by the stock Micra interior.

    Awful things - been around for years, but not many of them thankfully.
    ex - 2002 X-Type 2.5 V6; 1995 XJ Sport 3.2; 1998 Mercedes C180 Elegance; VW Passat 2.0TDI (140); Audi A4 Avant 2.0TDI; Nissan Qashqai 1.5dCi; Current - 2007 XJ 4.2 V8 Sovereign, and occasionally an Electric Wheelchair!

    It wasn't me! A big boy done it and ran away.

    I've seen a couple of these things and they are pretty hideous. At first glance you might thing you had blured vision!! Not sure what the japanese were thinking when they came with this - perhaps it was meant to be a joke that got lost in translation!!
