Sometimes car manufacturers can’t build the exact car customers want. It’s not all that abnormal, really, and it’s why we see some cars with horrible light lenses, stick on LED strips and other assorted ugly crap.
But sometimes, in the deepest darkest depths of a suburban garage, people build cars that are actually really good. Yesterday, one such car was spotted for sale on eBay by our Twitter friend @Zuffle.
On the face of it, a Suzuki Cappuccino is reasonably cool. A tiny, rear drive two seat sports car, but it always suffered from small-engine syndrome. Born in Japan as a Kei car, government restrictions mean that standard Cappuccinos are powered by a 63hp 660cc 3cyl engine.
Obviously not enough. Particularly for the chap who decided to mount the 13B-REW rotary engine from an RX-7 FD to this one. It’s fitted with a single turbocharger instead of the usual twin-turbo, as well as an array of other mods, including new oil cooler and intercooler…
There’s no mention of power output, but we expect it’s rather high, particularly when you consider the fact that the car would take off in a light breeze.
This mind-twistingly bonkers little car is for sale on eBay at a very reasonable £4,000. It needs a bit of work, but if it doesn’t sell it’s going to be broken down into parts. Save it!
