It's not really a "new" MPV. It's basically a Chery V5 with revisions to the front, rear and interior of the car. Just a facelift with a new badge slapped on the front.

So the Bentley has been confirmed as a local as I saw it again on the weekend outside KFC. I've also seen two brand new Range Rovers, one Chevrolet Bel Air and a 1950's Chevrolet Corvette.

JDM commercial vehicle. Basically it's sold only in Japan officially although grey market cars make it out.

It's basically Japan's equivalent of the Ford Tourneo.

On the way home from lunch at a restaurant, I saw two older TVR's (a Cerbera and something from the 80's), a Rolls-Royce Armoured Car on a trailer and a Ferrari 2/308 cabriolet.

Saw my first Range Rover Evoque today sitting on a street in an upmarket suburb of town. Also saw a last generation Saab 9-3 around town a couple of times. It's a very rare car here.
