After what seemed like ages, Japanese car maker Mitsuoka is finally releasing its next-generation Viewt. Now, if you’re wondering who or what Mitsuoka is, they’re a local car brand from Japan that caters only to the Japanese market. What’s unique about Mitsuoka is the fact that they build modern cars that resemble those old-time British automobiles from the 50s and the 60s.

As you can plainly see with the new Viewt, Mitsuoka is continuing on that legacy. Underneath the vintage-looking exterior is actually a production-made Nissan Micra so you can be sure that while the look is vintage, the performance is not. Mitsuoka did alter a few of the design elements of the car like the integration of the front bumpers to the front end panels.

It’s been a while since we last saw Mitsuoka grace our presence with a car so the release of the new Viewt came at just the right time.

Seriously? You think people bailed on Tokyo to boycott little bitty Mitsuoka? The Vewt’s been out for awhile with the same basic body as this one.

I for one love it, the Viewt looks like a Jag that’s been left in the dryer too long and it actually starts? Wow, what a concept!

A Japanese carmaker that produces 50’s era BRITISH cars? Why Japan WHY????????? And then we wonder why everyone bailed out of the Tokyo Motor Show.
