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 coachbulider, taking production cars like the Nissan Micra and replacing the bodywork with its own custom designs. It has also produced a concept sports car, the Orochi. Mitsuoka Motors is also the principal distributor of retro-classic roadster in Japan.
The Le seyde is production from 1990 / 1996 although later registered cars can be found. Made in limited numbers the first 500 produced sold in no time at all and so another few batches were produced. Produced in various engines the most popular is the 1800cc Nissan Engine although 4700cc engines were fitted to a few!
The cars are incredibly distinct and their uniqueness makes them very desirable and collectable.

The Viewt is a modification of the Nissan March/Micra, intended to resemble the Jaguar Mark 2. It, along with Mitsuoka's later Galue, encouraged larger Japanese manufacturers to produce retro-styled versions of their own cars.
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.
Like the March, the new Viewt is available with 1.2-, 1.4- and 1.5-litre engines, with automatic or manual transmissions. The interior resembles the March's; leather seats are optionally available. The 12SR version uses some of the March 12SR's interior decoration, such as carbon fibre inserts on the dashboard.
