Autumn Sale - 20th Anniversay
Saturday 27th October 2018
Sandown Park Racecourse, Portsmouth Rd, Esher KT10 9AJ

Registration: MUF 853F
Chassis No: HK11303511

The first Viewt, introduced in January 1993, was produced on the basis of the K11 March. The March's hatchback was replaced by a fixed rear window and rounded boot, and the front grille and headlamp assembly was replaced by one closely resembling that of the Jaguar Mark II. In standard form the interior was much the same as the March's, but leather seats and wood trim could be added at extra cost.
The Viewt shared its 1.0- and 1.3-litre engines with the March. It was originally available with manual or automatic transmissions; later more luxurious editions were automatic-only.
Changes to the March were usually echoed in the Viewt; for example, when the March received a new dashboard the Viewt had it too, with a new wood kit. After the March convertible was introduced in 1997, Mitsuoka developed a Viewt convertible which used the Jaguar-style front but had a unique built-out rear.
The Mitsuoka Car Company started making the Veiwt in 1993 using a Nissan Mirca 1.3 automatic as a base vehicle. The model imitates a MK II Jaguar and has a very quirky style of its own. These are custom made out of metal and were very expensive and rare car even in Japan and is great fun to drive. The car has all Nissan Mirca running gear, power steering, special made interior trim, red leather effect with piping etc, it’s a Jaguar Mirco car and lots of fun.
