Kei Car Weekend Edition: Daihatsu Leeza Spider Turbo

LEEZA SPIDER-01
Continuing with the Kei Car Weekend Edition, we move back into convertible weirdness, best served Daihatsu badged. The Leeza was a largely unremarkable hatchback built from 1986 to 1993, but it had a convertible version called the Spider, and that injected it with a dash of careless cool.
The 730kg droptop had a 660cc engine producing a neat 64 horsepower, and it was probably a lovely little thing to whip around.

The cabrio top could be peeled in parts, depending how much open air you needed.

Not surprisingly, there was a choice of manual and automatic.

The Leeza Spider might not be instantly brought to mind when thinking about weird Kei cars, but it’s most likely a touch more affordable than the cult cars posted earlier.
