Mother and daughter Mirage buyersIt's not a mirage – a mother and daughter from Barnstaple really have picked up identical new cars.


Deanna Gray and Karen Ward have each just collected their brand-new Mitsubishi Mirages, in grey, from Devonshire Motors in Braunton Road, Barnstaple. Both vehicles are Mirage 3s with matching interiors and trim and both have a manual gearbox. In fact, the only difference you can see is just one letter in the number plates.

A delighted Karen, 50, who works as an Administration Assistant, said: “I think they’re great, they look like twins. They’ll be parked together whenever I go to see my mum and it’ll be hard to tell the difference.”

Her mother, Deanna, 71, now retired, added: “We were looking at buying a car for Karen and when I saw the Mirage it was such a good deal that I thought I’d have one for myself too. We both liked the grey colour and I think they look really good together. We’re really pleased with them.”
