Daihatsu Concept unveiled for Tokyo Auto Show

December 29, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The Tokyo Auto Show will open on January 15, but due to the pandemic, it will take place online. The Daihatsu brand has announced five concepts for the auto show at once.

The prototypes were based on the key cars currently produced by the company: the sports Copen, the cargo Hijet, the Thor micro van and the Taft model. The latter, for example, during the transformation into Taft Crossfield, increased ground clearance, equipped with evil tires, power bumpers, an LED “chandelier” and an expeditionary roof rack.

Microvan Thor received asphalt aggression with the help of aerodynamic body kit, new rims and 2-color paint. The popular Copen Roadster was redesigned by Daihatsu into the Copen Spyder by removing the convertible top. In addition, the Hijet truck has also turned into an exotic Sportza speedster: its windshield has also been almost completely eliminated by integrating racing buckets into the open cockpit.

Finally, the fifth concept called Camper is a semblance of a compact motorhome, based on the Daihatsu Hijet. But the appearance of the prototype is made in a deliberate retro style. Tokyo Autosalon, which starts in January, is mainly dedicated to the tuning industry, for this reason, Daihatsu has not prepared any significant premieres of new models for it. But the collection of five prototypes, which show the possibilities of finalizing serial cars, has acquired the official name Colorful Carnival – “Colorful Carnival”.

In addition, some time ago it was noted that the tuners from Zyrus demonstrated a 1200-horsepower Lamborghini Huracan. It should be emphasized that it took two years of work and several thousand kilometers of tests to transform a sports car into a powerful track car.
