Japanese tuner Liberty Walk is known for its bodykits for exotic cars. Now he has turned a stylish kei car into one.

Not everyone can afford to buy a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, but a Pontiac Fiero can usually fit into the budget. And as we know, this model is a notorious basis for more or less successful imitations of the aforementioned exotic brands. But you don’t just come across a Fiero in Japan, so the islanders had to find another suitable victim.

Finally, once again a restomod without batteries!  The classic Porsche 911 is actually a young racer from the RS family

Last year at the Tokyo Motor Show we were able to admire the Ferrari F40 with a properly wide bodykit from Liberty Walk. This year, the brand launched a derivative for those with little garage space. The result is a cute Ferrari F40 replica based on the Mazda AZ-1 sports kei car. This is a very interesting car in itself, and maybe they are a shame for such a project, but for dilapidated pieces with a bad body, it can be a chance for a new life.

Almost nothing remains of the original body parts. The front is modeled including the hood, fenders and bumper with an authentic lollipop. There are also racing wings on the sides. At first glance, you can see a considerable expansion compared to the original. This corresponds to the new door panels with an indicated cut-out in the upper part, and the sill extensions smoothly follow the extended rear fenders. Due to the high construction of the rear, this part looks the least harmonious, although the fixed wing and diffuser did the trick. You can customize the black front as front and rear lights are not included. The same applies to the wheels and the tailpipe.

Suzuki shows again that it is not for the faint of heart.  He will bring action concepts to Tokyo

Just like the Ferrari F40 isn’t cheap, this toy won’t be cheap either. For the body kit in its raw state, Liberty Walk claims 515,000 CZK. Add to that the costs of assembly, alignment, purchase of lights and painting. If you like a used set of wheels with diameters of 16 inches in the front and 17 inches in the back, you can have them for 325,000 CZK.

The price does not include the red seats that we see in the photos, as the interior and drivetrain remain in stock form. This means that the entire weight of the new kit will be carried by a standard 0.657-liter three-cylinder with a power of 63 horsepower.

Mazda

The Japanese car company was founded in 1920 by Jujiro Matsuda. The title sometimes refers to his name, sometimes to the Persian god Ahura Mazda.

In 1979, he joined Mazda Ford, which gradually increased and sold its share. But today he already owns a small part of the company.
