Daihatsu Copen transformed into mini-Nissan GT-R convertible

Japanese tuner Liberty Walk has unveiled a new body kit package, which turns the cute little convertible hardtop Daihatsu Copen into baby Godzilla. We're not sure why Liberty Walk chose the Copen as its starting point, although the convertible's easily-removable resin body panels may have played a part in the decision.

Daihatsu Tempo mobile shop concept unveiled

The pint-size Daihatsu Tempo concept made its debut the 2015 Tokyo motor show. The Tempo isn't the first concept car that can operate as a food truck — remember the Peugeot Foodtruck concept that debuted earlier this year at the Milan Design Fair? — but it's probably the first that fits into the kei car category. Daihatsu refers to the Tempo as a "new genre-space commercial vehicle" with a flexible flat floor space that's built around a front-engine, front-wheel drive platform.

The design is a little bit like a shoebox, although some have also likened it to a toaster.
