So you say to yourself: “I want to buy a good second hand car from Japan.”
We say: “Sure, you can do it.”
And then you say to yourself: “I want to import a second hand sports car from Japan, from the Japanese used car auctions, or from a reputable dealer.”
We say: “That’s not a problem. Talk to us.”
And now you say: “And I want the car to be lighter than a first series Lotus Elise. I want it to be reliable and practical. I want it to be economical. I want it to be fast and fun with excellent handling and no power steering. And I want all-wheel-drive…..And I don’t want to spend too much money.”
And we say: “Suzuki Alto Works.”
All of these needs, demands, and desires are met by the Suzuki Alto Works, like this very fine first generation unit that we recently scored for a customer and shipped to the US.
You are looking here at a car that weighs only 650kgs (no, this is not a misprint), has a small, highly tuned 12-valve, turbo-intercooled engine that pumps out lots of power and red lines at a stratospheric 9,500rpm (no again, this is not a misprint) and has AWD to put that power down to burn up the road; and does it all inexpensively without burning a hole in your pocket.
Do we say this car is dirt cheap? No, but it’s sure cheaper than a Lotus. We can’t tell you here what the customer paid for it as we keep final prices as proprietary information for our customers (both dealers and private buyers) to protect their privacy, but we can certainly say that it was a very good deal indeed.
People worldwide are waking up to the joy of pure driving fun that you can still enjoy when you have a Japanese Kei sports car like an Alto Works; and the dealer network in Japan has woken up, too, so that we are now able to find some very fine, well cared for, and even well restored, examples of the pure motoring concept of the small, light, simple, practical, affordable, and super delightful pocket rocket.
Maybe no one makes joyful cars like this anymore (at least not in the affordable price brackets; pace Lotus) but you don’t have to give in and drive a boring car. Just buy a Suzuki Alto Works (or any of the great Japanese Kei class sports cars) from Japan and you’ll be a happy sports car driver indeed.
