Order books for the new Daihatsu Copen has been brim-filled with 4,000 orders - equivalent to just the sales target of six months. Two variants are on offer - a CVT automatic and a five-speed manual. 70 percent of buyers took up the former, with only 30 percent opting for the conventional stick shift.
Under the hood of the new K-roadster is a 660cc turbocharged engine which produces 64bhp and 92Nm of torque.
The new car keeps to its cutesy proportions and size, measuring 3,395mm in length, 1,475mm in width and standing at just 1,280mm.
The best highlight of the new car has to be the customisable body panels, which allows owners to personalise a total of 11 parts on their own Copen, including the front hood, boot, front and rear bumpers, front and rear fenders, locker and fuel lid.
It also comes with an electronically-operated two-piece folding hard top.
