It has me stumped - the grill is like an old Jag and the headlights are very similar to the Morgan Aero GT, but we know it isn’t a Morgan and if it’s in production it can’t be a Jag - any more clues?
Nice looking car though!!

Well done KD - not a car I have heard of but having looked it up, it confirmed my thoughts about it’s origins being linked to old Jags and the Morgan Aero -

“Based on the Mazda MX-5 NC, Mitsuoka replaces most of the body panels, fits Fibre-reinforced plastic panneling, leather seats and extends the wheelbase front of the A-pillar to generate the long bonnet line reminiscent of English roadsters such as the Jaguar XK120 and particularly the Morgan Aero 8.”

Did you read Autocar same as me?

Yes correct HHTel,

Invicta Black Prince (1946)

Streamlined body? Check. 3.0-litre all-alloy engine? Check. Super-advanced transmission (the brilliantly named the Brockhouse Hydro-Kinetic Turbo Transmitter)? Check. The 1946 Black Prince showed promise aplenty; the cooling system even featured an integral immersion heater so it didn’t freeze up. But priced at 10 times the cost of an ordinary family saloon, the economics didn’t stack up and just 16 were made.
