I don't know if the headlights are too small or if it's the grille that is too small, but it looks like there is something wrong with the front end design.

Anyway, it looks like a copy of a Kia or Hyunday, that by it's way was a a copy of a Mercedes.

Boy there are not a lot of people claiming to have this one and I would bet there are some who got it wrong. This thing is a real red herring. I was shocked when I found it and it took me a couple of hours. Thanks Harry! Two more hours of my life I will never get back. :blink: :D

Well done Pete.
To some car owners a Chevy Nova or a Ford Popular would be obscure. Depends where you're coming from I guess. it was certainly pretty obscure to me too!

More than making cars in Iran, who knew that South Korea had the ties with Iran to set up a plant in Iran.  I have no understanding of that relationship at all.

And it was styled by Italdesign Giugiaro and yet looks terrible, how did that happen?
Next time can we have one with at least 400bhp please Harry!
