LOL, Al is correct there are some pretty Big hints in earlier posts.
It's not a Cursor or a C5  8).
However it was an 80's produced Micro car.
I need to stop buying!

In the 1980s Harrods used to sell Volkswagen Beetle Children's Cars.

I seem to recall they were powered by a 250cc Briggs and Stratten internal combustion engine and whilst weren't street legal probably can be considered as a micro-car.

I've just bought myself a new Micro car, taking a quick look through a mound of paperwork I came across what appears to be the original sales receipt. By all appearances it looks as though the car was sold by Harrods Department store.
As a little bit of fun, can anyone guess what Micro cars were sold by Harrods?

I will reveal the new purchase after a few guesses  8)

So, what is your new purchase?
