1960s Mini Looks Good as a Mercedes-Benz

It seems that putting a premium face and badge on a small city car is not something that new, and while the Toyota IQ-based Aston Martin Cygnet is very recent, there are cars much older than it, which have gotten the same treatment.
Take this classic 1960s mini, which has had a Mercedes-Benz W114/W115 E-Class face grafted onto it. We say it doesn`t look half bad, and the Mercedes-Benz theme has been nicely integrated into the overall design, and while it may be a bit striking, at first, it is still a truly unique head-turning little car.

Not a lot can be said about it, and we don`t know who made it or when it was made, and there is no record of it anywhere, so it is clearly a bespoke custom job. We tried searching for any reference, yet we came up short, and all we know is that the car exists, and it was spotted in an underground parking lot in Cannes, France.
