Cinquecento Bento: The Duesen Bayern Ritz

If you find yourself in Japan, bored with the look of your Nissan Micra, just call Duesen Bayern. Don't worry, it's a local call. The Japanese company builds replicas of European iron from other hardware. Such is the company's the Ritz model, for example, for which the company refits a Micra with sheetmetal add-ons to bring out its inner Fiat 500. Sure the dimensions aren't perfect, but they'd still be a hit at the Venetian in Las Vegas.

Fiat 500? Relax, it's just a Japanese replica based on the Nissan Micra; More on Japan's Mini VW Bus Replicas [Carscoop]
