According to the claim on Marktplaats (Dutch Craigslist) this 1992 Daihatsu Opti was actually a show car for the 1992 Leipzig Auto Show:
The car has been shipped from Japan to Leipzig to be shown to the public. Apparently the public didn’t like it that much and the Opti never made it to Europe.
The Opti was built upon the Daihatsu Mira L200 platform (as know as the Cuore in Europe), meaning it was a kei car featuring a 659cc 12 valve engine under the bonnet. I don’t expect high power output from this engine though.
So think about it: you could be a celebrity like Rie Miyazawa in this ad!
There is no reserve set, but the highest bid is already at 1600 euros! If you would like to buy this unique car you can find it here
