1963 Sting Ray Miata...it's a Rock Star!
The ever creative, small volume Japanese car company Mitsuoka has produced 50 copies of the new generation Miata restyled to look like the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray.

Road & Track tells all about it in the link posted below.

Or else just Google "Mitsuoka Rock Star", because that's what Mitsuoka named it!

I hope somebody models this car, because it's absolutely gorgeous.


Check out Mitsuoka's other wacky creations, including the "Viewt", a Nissan March subcompact restyled to look like a 1960's Jaguar Saloon!


Tomica has done these cars as 1/64 toys/models...but I smell an opportunity here for Autocult in our scale for sure!

Fiata! by Harvey Goranson #26305
That's a good looking model, Harve. Was there a 1:1 like that? (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.1
A good buddy here in Austin owns a white Abarth Fiata, and he loves it. by Rick Thompson #26305.1.1
I read a comparison online by Harvey Goranson #26305.1.1.1
I think, from a lot of angles, that the Fiat looks nicer. I always liked the original by Rick Thompson #26305.
The current Fiat Spider is a Mazda Mata with a new body. by Robert Bolin #26305.
I had a 124 Spider as well, red with saddle. It was an amazing driver but upkeep was breathtaking. (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.
Down at your local Fiat dealer JK! Though this is a 2017, I doubt much has changed. (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #26305.1.2
The Fiat is just like a Miata except for the puddle of oil under it. (EOM) by Don Anderson #26305.1.2.1
That is an advanced Italian lubrication technique! Oil drips out the by Rick Thompson #26305.
Yes! I've had a few of those myself (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.
Had a 124 Sport Coupe back in the early days and it was one of the best cars I've had (EOM) by Tom Ciryak #26305.
I like it but I just picked up a Ford Fiesta ST. It's nearly as much fun as the Miata and is faster! (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.1.2.2
1963 Sting Ray Miata...it's a Rock Star! by John Kuliak #26305.2
If AC did it, I'd get one! (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #26305.2.1
If AC did it, it wouldn't have a Miata drive train. :-) (EOM) by Robert Bolin #26305.2.1.1
Ha! (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #26305.
I wonder what it would take to get it imported and legal on US roads? (EOM) by Robert Bolin #26305.2.2
Here's a pic of the Miata conversion by John Kuvakas #26305.2.3
