I've got a Suzuki Cappuccino, which I absolutely love. I've had it for 5.5 years, and it still makes me smile. I've seen the Honda Beat a couple of times on the road, but never parked, until last week, when on the hunt for TF's, it was in the same car park. EDIT: Some background on the Kei class cars: I'm not sure about now, but in the nineties in Japan, if you couldn't prove you had somewhere to keep your car, i.e. driveway, garage, etc, you were only allowed to buy a Kei class car. This was to try and reduce the clogging up of the roads. The Kei class cars were all tiny, as they were restricted by length, width, weight, and engine size. Most of them were boxy shopping run-arounds, but a few were more interesting. Daihatsu turbocharged a shopping box, and Honda, Suzuki, and Mazda all made tiny sportscars. My Cappuccino's engine is a 3-cylinder 660cc DOHC 12 valve, with an inter-cooled turbo, it revs to 9000rpm! It absolutely screams at high revs It's all completely standard apart from a Larini stainless steel exhaust. It's rear-wheel drive, and weighs 660kg, it can be a handful in the wet, and particulary in the snow, wheee! The roof comes off in three bits, going in the boot, with the rear window and roll bar, folding behind the seats, so it can be a coupe, targa, or full convertible, almost a TF! The Honda Beat is naturally aspirated, RWD, and mid-engined.
