i see it in my catalogues in France...

I think I've seen RHD models in England, but they could be grey market. It's about 50/50 with Japanese cars.

Desscythe17 wrote I'm not sure what to label this car as, since it has a roof that can be removed. I can't list it as convertible though, because there is also a version with a full convertible top.

Convertible and Very Convertible!

damianea103 wrote Also, any idea what this error is being caused by?

I've had this issue before when adding diecasts. Basically, certain forms of punctuation cause an issue with the website's database. Add the info with no punctuation and you should be golden!
Less basically, for those who care, some punctuation marks are used in programming and if someone writes a short script, they can mine a database for info through that code. The error is a security measure to prevent this. While makes and models are not valuable data, these scripts can be injected into databases with personal data in them. An alternative security measure may be to limit characters but in the model field, this would be a struggle due to some cars excessive names.

What Opel/Vauxhall do you think this is a rebadge of?

I thought it looked quite similar to the Crossland/Mokka. I've looked again and it is a subtly different design but you can't deny the similarities.

Lancia wrote This car was exported to Canada, but I'm not sure about the US, since it was thought that soldiers returning home from the Western front brought back the cars. Before the war, export to the US was literally impossible because of tariffs.

Like a lot of classic British stuff, these will probably pop up anywhere that used to be part of the empire/commonwealth.

I am yet to see an angle of this car that isn't truly vile. Even the interior looks cheap, with an oversized iPad rammed into it with no thought of aesthetics. 2019-11-19 00:40

1975-1986 Rolls-Royce Camargue
The story behind this car is mad! It was the first post-WW2 Rolls-Royce not designed in-house, first Rolls-Royce designed to metric measurements and the first car to ever have split-level climate control. At-launch was the most expensive car in the world (albeit briefly). It was launched in the USA a year after it's launch in Europe.
On a side-note, I'm not sure that the production location is correct but I can not offer an alternative at present.

If it was never showed, how do we have pictures of it? Surely this (wherever it is) should count as first shown on a technicality. 2019-10-31 01:25

2019 Toyota e-Palette
Desscythe17 wrote More of a "vehicle" than a "car", I've added it anyway since it's a concept.

Toyota plans to use these autonomous vehicles during the Olympic Games of 2020, to transport visitors.

Seems closer to something along the lines of the Optare Alero minibus. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optare_Alero)

2015-2016 Lagonda Taraf
From what I can tell, only 120 were ever made, not 200. I'm having some difficulty working out countries too. Definitely the Middle East (Taraf is Arabic for ultimate luxury), but I'm not sure they even sold it in the UK! 2019-10-07 02:50

Surely by this point, it has been built though? We go off production years for US cars, why not this?

Same platform, and probably some shared parts like all GM cars.

Shame the Vauxhall version never got a coupe! Then again, it might not have sold well and the Caveliar is not fondly remembered!

The UK reg below it is 1990 (H reg) so that one should be right at least.

There is one of these near where I live. Either:
1. This version was sold in the UK (and possibly Europe)
2. There is a European version
3. It is a grey market import and I am wasting everyone's time.
If anyone knows which it would be really helpful. Thank you in advance!

I assume from the name that this was built for the President of France. If so, should we be marking other similar vehicles IE The US Presidents Cadillac or the various cars owned by British PM's and royalty over the years? 2019-07-03 00:55

Since they are not officially made by Renault, I would say no. Otherwise, we would have to put every single customized or tuned car in that category.

I would argue that that would make sense, but fair enough.
