550cc of Fury..
1987 L70V Daihatsu Mira TRXX Turbo.
Based on the second generation Mira; introduced two years earlier.
The full-framed rear window spoiler is consistently awesome. 80's Kei hot-hatch staple..
Looking to be a bit of overspray around the car. not so awesome. ha
.. could just be textured sound deadening!
I reckon my primary-school had the same pattern on the floor..!
while only SOHC and rather low-tech compared to some of the Kei hot-hatches; it had no trouble putting out the Kei-maximum of 47kw.
This it the later fuel-injected version, and gets boosted by an intercooled IHI Turbo.
Neat enough car. small amount of wear-and-tear and odd touchups, but rare enough to make that no issue. Its all there and largely original... and that's fine by me. :)
