It’s not often we find ourselves unable to identify a vehicle. And as much as it hurts our car guy pride to admit it, we have no flippin clue what this cute little coupe is.

Sure, a Civic could smoke you, but as he blows by, take a gander at the indestructible MB-Tex upholstery, beautifully designed center console, and 500k odometer reading. You’ll soon realize you’ve already won.
