    I don't get why they have the disguise covers on the car when it looks like that's a motoring journalist driving it and commenting on it. Usually by the time a car reaches the journalist stage the manufacturer want to show it off and sell it.

    Not sure about the car. It looks like it rolls quite a bit and it wasn't going that fast. Did others think that too? Does it have higher profile tyres or softer suspension?

    I like his jumper though :D

    Copen, no other car.
    Well in my mind I've already replaced the front grill with a nice chrome one - l hope it comes over here, (I wouldn't swap but) a new style Copen can only be a good thing :)

    Each place you look on the car you can see its a facelifted Copen. But good to see that they have moved forward the switch on the cover between the seats.

    But they've even used the surplus door pocket nets they have left over from the Copen production! lol

    Its got an 80/90s look about the interior, not sure if thats retro.

    Its got tweeters on the windscreen posts.

    Still drums on the rear :(

    Yes 80's 90's look isn't so much a retro look as just a shit look. Have to go back to at least the sixties to be retro, surely?
    I never noticed his shirt, did it clash with the cars exterior?:D
    You noticed more than me but it does look very Copen like, even with the disguise. I read the new Copen would be bigger than the original and that does look bigger. I'll have another look at the interior and his shirt.

    Just watched it again and on reflection it doesn't look much bigger than the current car. It's higher waisted and seem a bit more roomy inside.
    I like the centre console and they have improved the seat belt guide so the belt doesn't have to twist as it leaves the rear bulkhead.
    It's a nice car overall but I doubt they will sell it in Europe in the current financial climate.

    Jumper actually. Unless you part Viking bloods up there call a jumper a shirt or a shirt a jumper. Yes it matches.

    I thought 80/90s after looking at the air vents which seem square and flat, and other dash parts look pointy and chunky square. Maybe Fukushima has moved them back 20 years, literally.

    I think the wheelbase will be the same, damn it, of cause its the same, its a bleedy genetically modified Copen. But the boot looks chunkier to the rear. It doesn't slope away. So maybe a bit more boot space. Front end seems a slight bit more squared off to.

    I thought the front end looked a bit like Joelowe's modified front.
    Yes I noticed the square vents and the switches from thirty years ago. I like the centre console though a kind of modern take on 1930's Art Deco.
    Aye it was a jumper looked like a film negative of Freddie from Nightmare on Elm street.
    I'm glad you said jumper and not sweater, I hate that word. Up here us Viking half breeds think sweater is a bit Southern Poncy so we say jumper. Might get away with calling it a pullover but be careful in the wrong bar it could be dangerous, not worth the risk.:D
