Quite a list
Maybach 57.  The darkened windows and Kobe registration suggested that the owner might be camera-shy.

Rolls Royce Phantom in white
Prius PHV.  Quite a few, actually.

Austin A35.  Nissan did make Austin copies under the Datsun brand, but this particular car has Austin badge and bonnet ornament.

Mitsubishi i and i-MiEV.  It’s hard to tell them apart unless you can hear an engine running.
Nissan Leaf

Ferrari.  There have been Colnago-Ferrari collaborations… this wasn’t one of them.
Chevrolet
Hummer

Quite why butch brands appear in dinkys I haven’t quite worked out.
