Quirky Japanese firm Mitsuoka has shown off the latest version of its Viewt microcar ahead of its official launch at this week’s Tokyo motor show.
The Mitsuoka Viewt is underpinned by a Nissan Micra, with the shell of a Jaguar MKII on top.
The model first went on sale in Japan in January 1993, before being replaced by a second-generation model in 2005. The latest model has been updated to keep pace with Japan’s safety and crash test regulations.
The model has three engine options – a 1.2-litre, a 1.4-litre and a 1.5-litre, all petrol and putting out between 90 and 109bhp.
Inside, the Micra’s cabin remains largely untouched, aside from some new trim, seat coverings and badging. Pricing will be confirmed at the Tokyo show, which starts tomorrow.
