We’ve all heard of the legendary ABC kei cars, but have you heard of this cute little beast? The Copen of ‘02, a kei car manufactured by Daihatsu that is worthy of being legendary that sadly, many have forgotten about or don’t appreciate much. Featuring a rigid, lightweight body and a fine-tuned suspension, the Copen was a well engineered sporty machine, so much so that is capable of circuit racing. Engineering ingenuity and performance aside, the Copen was styled by the famous Italian design company known as Pininfarina, which explains the Copen's simple yet cute design. As an added bonus, its a convertible, which allows it's driver to feel the fresh breeze of air as they drive around. Fast? Yes. Sporty? Cute, but yes. Affordable? Solid yes. The perfect car for those who prefer compact and sporty design, whilst still being capable of racing.
