Cars which share the same headlights?

so i was looking at cars as you normally do and noticed that the old ford mondeos share the same rear lights as the noble m12, i was wondering if there are any other cases of this occurring.

she’s still beautiful, the griffith that is cars which share the same headlights?.

another tvr which shares rear lights is the cerbera, the rear light cluster of the cerbera comes from an old ford fiesta. it’s less obvious is most pictures though becuase the clustesr in the tvr is behind an outter housing which is shaped quite differently and hides most of the detail, unless it’s a well lit close up like this.

^that made me chuckle. as i scrolled i experienced the bus thinking maybe it shared the taillights of a truck or something. i did not expect the mclaren f1.

i knew about the diablo, but never realized that the r390 shared them as well.

it’s always weird to see a ups truck with oldsmobile headlights:

my favourite obscure example:

the invicta s1 of the early aughts used the contemporary passat’s taillights rotated 90-degrees, so the white portions resembled “i”s:

interestingly, the headlights are swapped left for right and right for left. and the morgan uses the mini’s turn signals, too.

the prefacelift aero 8 used the headlights from the vw new beetle, again swapped left to right and vice versa, which gave it a rather “crosseyed” look.

hard to source pics on the phone, but i believe the original zondas share their taillights with another euro car.

apparently peter stevens had the marker lights flipped around on the f1 so that ever-so-perfectionnist gordon murray would not notice they were from a lotus.

for that matter, the original vw bus also uses the beetle’s headlights, but rotated outwards 90°.

this applies to bay windows as well, using ’67-on beetle rings.

yeah, they’re all the same part number (trim rings anyway). odd one out is the ghia.

i think, as with the the mclaren/bova lights, the diablo/zonda rear lights are off-the-shelf items made by hella or magneti marelli rather than something designed specifically for one particular car/bus. they end up getting used on all sorts of vehicles and trailers etc.
