Austin FX4, a very old one. It presumably belongs to a collector or movie car rental company in Los Angeles.

EDIT: It belongs to Michael Harper Smith - the registration number matches exactly.

What other cars did they use for this sequence supposedly set in the UK?

This is the only capture (so far), but the brown car in front could be the same collector's Reliant Scimitar, which has appeared twice in Heroes.

Who is Michael Harper-Smith? just a man owning a big collection of cars?

From his website:
Quote Michael has been involved with collecting cars and motorcycles for over thirty years and is now able to offer his extensive knowledge of European vehicles to the Entertainment Industry.

Michael lived for over 25 years in Paris and also lived several years in England, Spain and Italy as well as owning a house in the South of France near Monte Carlo. In the mid 1960s he was involved in driving Austin Healey 3000s in rallyes and riding his Vincent Rapide motorcycle on long journeys all over Europe. Living in Madrid (Spain) in the late sixties, Michael worked as a movie extra and bit actor in many commercials and ‘Spaghetti’ Westerns.

...

His love of strange cars and motorcycles has enabled him to accumulate a diversified collection of interesting and hard to find vehicles that are indispensable to the Entertainment Industry in Los Angeles. He also maintains a small museum of approximately 50 rare European motorcycles, which enthusiasts are welcome to visit by appointment.

Michael’s expertise as a foreign vehicle consultant is available for ensuring authenticity in various scenes from around the world.

Another scene showed a blurry A-Klasse, but it was just an empty UK street, so really shot in UK. I did not make a capture for that.

Unfortunately there is no better view of it :/

Austin FX4 from 1968 onwards by the tail-lights.

The 'K' registration indicates August 1971 - July 1972 and despite it not being listed on DVLA (as an exported vehicle) it would appear to be genuine.
