Mystery Car


April 20th is an interesting day in history. But because it’s Friday and many of us are just damn tired, let’s ignore history and focus on the important things in life, such as solving today’s Mystery Car. Who needs history anyway, it’s not like the same things happen over and over again. Rules are the same as always, gimme the make and model. The winner gets everyone’s respect for an entire week, that good-happy feeling inside, and a mention in next week’s Mystery Car. 
Last week‘s winner is GTXcellent, who correctly identified the mystery vehicle as a Fiat Jolly. If you’re a long time Hooniverse reader you may remember this car from my Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance post from 2014. 


Last week I mentioned that this mystery vehicle wasn’t something I’d want to drive from Boston to New York City, and I was right. The ride down was not bad, made in a tad over three hours even with GWB traffic. But the drive back was miserable. An unexpected April snow storm caused many spin-outs on I-84 in Connectthedots. The whole ride to me almost seven long hours. Ugh. No road trips this weekend.

  1. It’s a car from the last 10 years I think. But I am stumped. But thanks for bringing back Mystery Car!!

    1. Gratuitous use of carbon fibre (weight-saving in the unnecessary brow feature surrounding the lamp — FFS!) backs up your guess of sometime in the last 10 years…

    1. It’s only easy when you know it. I… didn’t know it. It could have been damn near anything.

      1. The bumper cut gives it away. I’m like 99.999999% sure it’s a Q60. Gorgeous car with really interesting surfacing and detailing.

    2. Infinitis have been ugly for so long that my brain blurs them out as a defense mechanism. There’s no way I would have guessed that.
