Toyota reveals compact Copen GR Sport in Japan

The tiny kei-car roadster is powered by a 660cc three-cylinder engine.

Toyota has revealed the Copen GR Sport, a tiny roadster that will be sold only in Japan.

The Gazoo Racing team modified the Daihatsu kei-car with chassis stiffening, different shocks, and a retuned electric power-steering system to improve handling and feel.
The roadster is motivated by a tiny 660 cc three-cylinder engine, delivering a modest 63 horsepower and 68 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels via a CVT or five-speed manual gearbox and limited-slip differential.
"Enjoy the limited power to the limit," the company says.
The Copen GR Sport will sell for the equivalent of $21,860 when it arrives in Japanese showrooms.
