Daihatsu Copen Becomes Mini Nissan GT-R Thanks To Liberty Walk

We’ve seen Japanese tuning firm Liberty Walk unleash its widebody-obsessed treatments on Kei cars before (who can forget that Honda S660), but none compare to this.

The car you see here is a Daihatsu Copen, or at least, it was. It’s now pretty much unrecognisable, having been fitted with a wide-arch kit (of course), a huge rear wing and - most importantly - the face of an R35 Nissan GT-R.

Images of the car were released last week on Liberty Walk’s Facebook page, something we somehow missed. Let’s blame the onslaught of pre-Goodwood reveals for that.

But now we’re having a good look at them and, well… there’s quite a lot to take in for such a small car, isn’t there? It’s cute but angry, like one of those little yappy dogs that like to nip at your heels. It certainly won’t be fast - the Copen’s 658cc inline-three develops just 63bhp, and although the standard car weighs only a little over 800kg, this LB version may well be a bit heavier with all the added bits and pieces. But who cares: we dig it. We think…

The complete ‘GT-K’ kit is available for 415,800 yen, which is about £2800.



That’s what happens when

A Toyota 4A-GE, a Suzuki Hayabusa engine or a Nissan SR20DET would be good……or a 1JZ if you wanna go bonkers…
