Daihatsu Copen

The Daihatsu Copen is a 2-door roadster with an aluminium retractable hardtop built by the Japanese car company Daihatsu. It first debuted at the 1999 Tokyo Motor Show, as the Daihatsu Copen concept. In two years, the OFC-1 was also completed as a precursor to the Copen, based on Daihatsu's front-wheel-drive light-car platform. The Copen was originally designed with a 660 cc turbocharged engine in order to meet Japanese kei car regulations. However, it no longer meets environmental emissions standards in several other countries, and so in these markets the Copen is fitted with a more powerful 1.3 L engine. At the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, Daihatsu revealed two new trim levels of the Copen, the 1.3l and the 'ZZ'. On January 13th 2011, Daihatsu announced that it would withdraw the Copen from the European market effective from 31st January 2013 due to the ongoing strength of the Japanese Yen.
