CONCEPTUAL, CUSTOM &  c1  PROTOTYPE CARS

***********************************

In 2017 Daihatsu are bringing 11 Concept Cars to the 2017 Tōkyō Auto Salon (tuner expo).  There are four main categories:

Sporza‘ versions of the Kopen roadster, Boon hatchback , Move Canbus & Thor mini-wagons all have sporting aspirations and are finished in red and black with gold wheels.

The ‘Grand Custom‘ takes a more refined approach to customising the Thor, Tanto, and Move and are painted in dark shades of black and grey, with blue wheels, trim, and accent lighting.

The ‘Beach Cruising‘ retro styled Canbus and Boon cast a nod to times gone by with light blue paint, wood trim, and chrome wheels.

The ‘Cross Field‘ versons of the Cast Activa and Wake take on a more ‘country‘ appearance, with their green paintjobs and orange accents.

  ‘Dream Factory Blow  cus1  and Kei Cars

The Dream Factory Blow specialises in tweaking the aesthetics of pint-sized kei cars to create miniature interpretations of classic American cars like the 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup truck or a 1985 Chevrolet van.  Dismantling a substantial portion of the vehicle’s body structure does have an impact on frame stiffness, and to that end, the Dream Factory has to have its vehicles tested by the Japanese government for safety.
