Cars you didn't know existed until very recently.

That's really nice, and I've never seen it before either. Is it a factory job or something by Ooooley-ez?

Here's an article... It's in French.

But you have what appears to be a 306 cabriolet body, 607 rear lights and I assume a modified Peugeot roof?

Alfa Romeo Navajo (by Bertone) , one of a series of concept cars based on the Tipo 33 Stradale.

And here are some of the others -

 

Looks a bit like the Japanese Dome Zero from the late 70s. I remember reading about it in an old issue of CAR but I gather it's had a resurgence of interest after appearing in a couple of driving games.

The Mitsubishi L300 seems to have been relaunched in NZ, judging by a drive-by of a local dealer the other day.

 

Sort of looks familiar:

2020-Mitsubishi-Express-Van-White-1001x5

 

Back end badge placement is most excellent:

Meanwhile, the Philippines are doing things right, still:

A smidge over £12k!

I think I've found the shitest special edition of all time:

The Fiat Ritmo Star-Trek!

Sold only in Switzerland in 1979 to mark the release of the first Star Trek film, it was a metallic blue 5 door with a massive logo on the bonnet, a rainbow stripe running seemingly across the whole car, a Blaupunkt stereo cassette deck and... a 2.1 inch black and white TV! Perfect for when you want a distraction from driving!

Never been a sci-fi fan but I absolutely love this! Doubt any are left

It was a tie-in with the original Star Trek film - hence the rainbow stripes. This is the only film I've ever watched on one of those really big laserdiscs which rapidly became obsolete when the smaller format was adopted.

I think you should be getting a Renault (Dacia) Duster as well.

I did discover that you can buy a brand new fiat Tipo saloon in the UK still...
