No it's not new, it's a used vehicle imported from japan only a handful are in the uk and mine is the only one in the whole of Italy....I'm rather attached to it and would like to keep it.
Driving on the right doesn't bother me at all I prefer it here actually apart from overtaking a lorry.
It's an unusual car which attracts alot of attention due to its looks, I'm starting a marketing agency so wanted to use this car as an advertising tool. I also own a converted vintage London taxi which is now an espresso bar (also having issue with this vehicle as the company who made it no longer exist)
I went to the italy automobile club office in cuneo they said nothing can be done for both vehicles especially the taxi as it has espresso machine inside along with gas tank, water tank etc and they are not listed on my uk log book (which it wouldn't be) they dont list these on uk log book.
