23. Autozam AZ-1
If you don’t know what this car is, nobody can blame you. The Autozam AZ-1 is a tiny sports car powered by a turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 660 CCS and 64 HP. Mazda built it and Suzuki sold it in limited numbers from 1992 to 1995. During that time, they made less than 5,000 of them. Despite its size and 1,500 pounds of weight, the Autozam AZ-1 was a proper sports car. In fact, some people consider it the only supercar in the Kei Car segment. With its perfect chassis, gullwing doors, and decent performance, it was a favorite driving machine in Japan at the moment.
The bizarre styling but lively driving dynamics provided a unique driving experience. And that is one of the reasons you should consider importing this little gem. And since they never officially sold the AZ-1 outside of Japan, it’s even rarer. But now you can now import it to the USA since it’s been around for more than 25 years.
