Tuning studio Liberty Walk has decided to turn the small roadster made by the Japanese company Daihatsu into an extremely cute replica of the Nissan GT-R supercar. From some angles, the little car looks like the original GT-R, which has been reduced a couple of times.

Tuning studio Liberty Walk has been producing body kits for the Japanese compact roadster Daihatsu Copen for several years. For the first time, the aerodynamic body kit for this model, which will be made in the style of the GT-R supercar, was announced back in 2017. Now he is finally ready.

The front of the kit features a GT-R-style false radiator grille, as well as air intakes and horizontal LED daytime running lights, also similar to those used in the GT-R.

The Daihatsu Copen’s standard headlights match surprisingly well with the angular grille, while the sharp front splitter gives Daihatsu the ground clearance you’d expect from a true supercar.

An expert in widebody kits, Liberty Walk has fitted the car with flared front and rear wheel arches positioned above the black-spoke wheelset and some aggressive camber. The kit also includes custom-made side skirts.

The Liberty Walk continues its modifications to the rear of the car with a huge rear wing, GT-R badge and rear diffuser / bumper just like the original GT-R. There are even four branded tailpipes.

While the modified Daihatsu Copen may almost look like a GT-R, it is still a Kei car, meaning it is powered by a tiny 658cc three-cylinder engine.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the new Nissan GT-R can get a hybrid powertrain. Nissan is preparing a major update to its US lineup, including the GT-R supercar. This was announced on Sunday, August 9, by the Automotive News portal, relying on a representative of the Japanese corporation.
