    Aston's Toyota iQ copy with an Aston grille and leather interior... at triple the price.

    Alfa Romeo's main domestic competitor at the time is correct. It is indeed a Maserati :)
    Tcar: Do you know which one?

    Yep, very close, but as pointed out by Tcar, not an Alfa. However, the car just behind it in the photo, also a red one, is in fact an Alfa Romeo :D

    Yep.
    Hard to believe they were planning on making hundreds of these. Certainly wouldn't be an extension of my personality! Surprised that 7 or 8 of these still exist.

    It is a repost but hoping someone else will name the lucky charm seen mostly in March 14th parades.
