Just came across these renders:

I find it a bit hard to believe, but they say Suzuki is going to collaborate with the UK Caterham Cars Ltd. to build this new generation of a small pocket rocket with a 0.65 L turbo engine.

:eek:

It finally looks less like a shrunken Miata and more like a Pocket Rocket.

Suzuki + caterham = win.

The front facia needs some work, but the rest of it is awesome.

Yes, the fascia looks like some bad Japanimation. Call in those Italians again.

Over all I like it but....What is it with the big "S" in the grill. The headlights look like stickers.

And the sides can't be damaged any worse than the original stampings

I like the carbon fiber touches, and I think if they tweek it a bit it will be pretty good looking. Might compete with the brz and shizzle

Priced right, this would tear up the Smartcar market in the US, not that there's a huge market in the first place mind.

Wonder how much effort would it take to grow a grey market in the US for this (and other Suzukis) ?

I might buy an 800 if it's cheap enough just because it's so beautifully plain and simple.

I thought it was a joke, but apparently it IS NOT :eek:

Even though my car is paid off and everything, I won't mind go back into debt for this. But I would love an older version of the Cappucino. Only issue, they are in Europe or Japan and I have to pay the shipping cost to get it over here but I wouldn't care :D
