I believe we can all agree that Asians, and Japanese in particular, have some weird tastes in everything, the automotive domain included.
In keeping to this tradition, a certain trend has taken form on the streets of Japan.
More and more people are buying what they call kei cars, which are essentially small vehicles of all classes. So it’s no wonder that the tuning industry is trying to go with the flow. Out of this the D-Sport Daihatsu Tanto was born, a quirky kei car that underwent major surgery.
Under the hood, D-Sport installed new sport air filters, high performance oil filters and even an oil cap. Not much, agreed, but enough for the 58 Hp engine or its 63 Hp turbocharged counterpart. To help mitigate such enormous powers unleashed by the Daihatsu Tanto, D-Sport also fitted a sport brake motor and stainless steel meshed brake lines. As for aesthetics, besides the lively coloring, mid and rear stiffening braces were also added.
