: What car is this?? 56k beware.

I saw this while I was walking around in Hong Kong. It had no manufacturer markings I knew, and not even a name. It sure is neat and VERY small. I wasn't the one who put the flyers in the tailpipe, but I guess someone over there was jealous. I also saw a sporty "Smart" car while I was there-- something different than what I'm used to. The sad part was that it was hard to have the camera ready to take pictures of moving vehicles. I also noticed how Hong Kong modders liked to glue and extreme number of figurines to their dashboard. One guy in a Honda Jazz had completely covered his dash with an army of figurines- I wish I'd gotten a pic of all that, but I did get a pic of some GUY (yes it was men who were doing this) who completely covered the back deck of his sticker covered Honda with stuffed animals. He had some dash figurines too, but not as excessive as the other guy.
Here's the little car
I want one.. you could blow away all the other go carts with this puppy!!!!
Here's a manly Honda from Hong Kong. [hihi]

It looks like what happens when a 350Z gets beaten and raped by a new style VW Bug.

The red lettering on the right side of the trunk said "Turbocharged". I can't begin to describe how utterly small it was, maybe focusing on the head rests in the back view would give you a better idea. I think those wheels aren't more than 14's, but I didn't check because I didn't want to get blamed for the paper shoved up the tailpipes. [hah]
2 seater hard top
Turbo 0.6l 4 cylinder -
67hp @ 6000 rpm
73 lb/ft @3200 rpm

^^Coming from europe has one advantage .. we hear about all the little obscure Asian cars..
This is sold in UK.. but I do not think it is sold in the rest of Europe..

i coulda sworn it was one of those Geely's. but hey, what do I know. Not only is it ugly as sin, it's slow as sin too.
Not that I expected any better from Daihatsu of all people.

Anybody play the Gran Turismo games? I was thinking it was one of those Suzuki Cappucino, close enough though.

The pass side airbag looks like it would be a bit tough on the testicular area
03-02-2006, 08:04 PM
Dang everybody beat me to it... although I only knew that it was a Daihatsu, I didn't know what model it was.

You know that hondas exaust is STILL SMALLER than most over here in the states.
That means our ricers are a product of US corruption and less asian influence than we thought.
Thats Ferked up!

The blue sedan with all the Honda markings is a non U.S. market Accord from the 90's. During the mid '90s, the 94 redesign iirc, Honda began making two different Accords, one for North America, the other for everywhere else. The world market model just came to the states a year or two back, known as the Acura TSX.
