The roll bar in the picture and your car is a dead give away IMO. Since the roll bar design is a bit unusual and quite wide, it's not something you'll see very often. They definitely match.

That type of a roll bar isn't used in any other model?

It's unusual to me. The width and shape are rather distinctive, nothing I can recall seeing before.
