I had just left the house seconds earlier when from across the street and out of nowhere, this thing arrested my attention. In a truly WTF moment, I about-faced and went in to grab my camera returning to cross the road to try and figure out what the heck this thing actually was…
And I still don’t know. I think it’s a Honda… either that or a Suzuki. Maybe both of those are wrong and it’s a Daihatsu but I’m sure someone out there knows. It’s got to be one of them!
It’s not that I don’t like Kei cars either – I do. I just don’t pay much attention to them because of the fact that Kei cars by and large are about as noticeable as that thing that cleans your underwear and stinky socks. The washing machines people; not the better halves.
This one though…now this is definitely different.
I like the chameleon paint and I like the stance. I like the matching red Sparco semi reclining buckets nestled within the interior…
… I also like the fact that it is ballin’ on 3mm of ground clearance and the fact it is on bags – although 7tune’s Dominik Bloemhard tells me that some people ride like this without bags!
( Yikes! )
But what I like most of all about this is that it’s a Kei car. A tiny, insignificant little 660cc engined buzzbox developing next to nothing in power but is still something that will turn heads no matter where it goes.
…See what I mean?
And besides, I think it looks pretty dope all in all. What do you guys think?
