Anyone familiar with popular television motoring programs will recognise the rather distinctive looks of this Japanese tribute to British sports cars of the 1960s!

GUIDE PRICE: £12,000 - £15,000

  • Mitsuoka is a small Japanese automobile company which builds modern Japanese cars to resemble British vehicles of the 1950s and 1960s. It is primarily a coachbuilder, taking production cars like the Nissan Micra and replacing the bodywork with its own custom designs
  • The Le Seyde was in production from 1990 to 1996. Made in limited numbers, the first 500 produced sold in no time at all and so another few batches were produced
  • This example dates from 1991 and is finished in white with green SSR cross-spoke alloys
  • It was first registered in the UK in 2015 and the V5 shows four former keepers
  • A distinctive Dalmatian print fabric covers the interior, which can be removed if desired. The two original front seats have been replaced with Recaro buckets
  • Having lived an eventful life on TV, the bodywork can be described as being in 'fair condition' with dents on both sides having been shot at with arrows
  • Holes can be found on each front wing allowing candelabras to be fitted for display purposes (note it is not road-legal in the UK to drive with these fitted). The candelabras are assembled and are stored in the boot
  • The car is fitted with a 1.8-litre Nissan engine which turns over and runs with no issues. The spark plugs have recently been replaced as well as a new battery fitted (2024)
  • The current indicated mileage is 35,500 and the MOT is valid until June 2024 issued with 'No Advisories'
