    Theu are very special cars. Some look like H-series van but smaller than a covet. Others are big brothers of go-karts.
    They will be good test subjects to show how dangerous old heavy cars, or even new well-designed modern cars can be...

    Thanks for correcting me. In where I live in, even automotive magazines call them (the small ones) K-Car. Probably because English is not our 1st language, or the blue car was never sold here.

    Nothing to do with english. Kei is the actual japanese term for it. To refer to it as K would still be incorrect as Kei is pronounced closer to the english word key rather than a hard static K.

    damn. K-Cars are ugly.

    OT : A Hirochi would be nice as a kei car. Could be a mixture of all the modern kei cars you can get atm.

    not all of them are. Not all of them even look like that one.

    Kei cars are simple. They are small and can only have a maximum of a 660cc engine with somewhere around 60hp.

    Their size are strictly limited. Maybe 1 chassis with different shells on it?

    Looks a bit too long in length and too short in height. Maybe because the picture is streched on my screen.

    That's because the cars in the K-car cup are not kei cars. Anything with a length of 3400mm (and engine size over 660cc) is too big to qualify as a kei car. I'm sure the Gran Turismo cup has nothing to do with actual Kei cars :)

    Technically, isn't the pigeon a sort of Kei car? I'm pretty sure it meet all the requirements?

    Kei car (in Japan at least) have 4 wheels. Therefore, 4-wheel mods for the pigeon does make it a Kei car.
