camera Micro Kit Car

Micro Kit Car K-4 $6500
Mitsuoka Motor, a Japanese company, has just unveiled a micro kit car "K-4", equipped with a 50cc engine on its classical tested sports car body, developed for the do-it-yourself customers in Tokyo. It is composed of more than 500 parts and takes approximately 40 hours to assemble. The Kit-Car measures just under 2.5 meters (eight feet) long and can run at up to 50 kilometers (31 miles) an hour.

Turbo cars are like hot women. A little edgy, every guy wants one, some guys can't handle them, and if you throw a little alcohol in them they'll rock your world

I like small cars, but that thing is a little underpowered. I think making it 10-11 feet long with at least a 249cc motor would make it much more useful.
Pretty cool though!

That's interesting how the shifter is on the outside of the car and the steering wheel is on the wrong side for Japan.

now this would be a seriously cool pit car for buzzing around the paddock between races - in that environment 31mph is plenty.

Drop a motorcycle engine in that and see how fast you can tear it apart.
