Finance Minister Tito Mboweni attracted mixed reactions on Twitter when he posted a tweet asking whether South Africa needs a national airline. Mboweni’s tweet…
Daihatsu, never one to shy away from the quirky and ridiculous (after all it gave us a real life version of Noddyâ€™s car in the form of the Copen) will debut the FCå‡¸DECK concept at this yearâ€™s Tokyo Motor Show (on right now).
If youâ€™re wondering what the â€˜å‡¸â€™ is, apparently it means â€œto protrudeâ€ in Japanese — apt considering that sticky-out passenger compartment.
Built around the principles of Japanese Kei Car culture which demands that such cars boast no more than 660cc engine capacity and be no longer than 3.4 metres in length, the FCå‡¸DECK is…well just awesome. Looking halfway between a kitchen appliance and something you might have built out of LEGO as a kid.
Iâ€™ll be honest, unless it looks like Optimus Prime Iâ€™m not really interested in driving a truck, or Semi as our American friends call them. That’s got a lot to do with all those gears and terrifying blind spots as illustrated here. But the FCå‡¸DECK? Hells yes!
What would you use it for? Who knows, and who cares! For now letâ€™s just bask in the awesomeness of it. Well Daihatsu, well done! I like å‡¸.
