Japan’s Pocket-Size Supercars – The Turbo Keis

Do you want a super light, sporty car with excellent handling, good power, and good looks?
Do you want that car to be a bit unique and different from what everybody else has, yet still practical and reliable? And do you want all this at a modest price?
Well dream on, because you’re not going to get it; at least, not if you shop for a new car.

Kei Class (Light Class) vehicles are unique to Japan and although there are overseas versions of some of them, like the ubiquitous Suzuki Alto, the high output 660cc turbo and supercharged Kei Sports versions were for Japan only.

These cars are light, like the early model Elise, at around 650kgs to 700kgs. They have turbo-charged or supercharged engines. They have excellent handling and you can even find some without power steering (the true sports car driver’s preferred set up, of course).

Mitsubishi Minica Dangan (Bullet) ZZ. The engine is highly tuned: turbo-charged and inter-cooled with multi-point fuel injection, dual overhead cam, and five valves per cylinder.

One thing we enjoy doing here at Japan Car Direct is spreading the word about and sourcing to performance car drivers, and indeed all car fans, the great cars made in Japan that the outside world never got, but which you can now have.
If you want fun but also want to keep your emissions footprint low, then these cars do it for you. When you buy and keep a small, efficient second hand car, a car that’s worth keeping because it’s fun and practical and satisfies your needs, you spare the planet all the extra emissions that come from wastefully dismantling a car that still has many years of service life in it, and, what is more, you stop the emissions that are required to make a new car. These are true eco sports cars.
