Few of you might know about the Daihatsu Copen, the world’s smallest coupe cabrio ever. While the first generation was looking like some sort of bug, the new one is actually a car you wouldn’t expect to come from that automaker.
While it retained its kei car dimensions, the new Copen adopted better proportions and more interesting shapes. Starting with the front which is fitted with new frowning headlights, a large trapezoidal grille, LED daytime running lights, a reshaped hood, going along with a new ascending waistline and ending with the taillights that protrude down into the bumper.

More than that, Daihatsu made sure the new Copen is greatly customizable by stiffening the chassis and leaving the body panels be non structural components that can be easily interchanged with different styled ones.

Still, it looks like that wasn’t enough for Japanese petrolheads as the Tokyo Auto Salon 2015 saw some rather interesting looking aftermarket modified Copens; special paints, rims and bodykits included.

Although it looks awesome and weighs only 850 kg (1,873 lb), the Copen is powered by a 658cc three-cylinder turbocharged engine making 47 kW (64 hp) and 92 Nm (68 lb-ft) of torque, all going to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox or a CVT.
