If you don’t know what the Autozam AZ-1 is, nobody can blame you. It is a tiny sports car powered with a turbocharged three-cylinder engine with 660 cc and 64 HP. Although Mazda built the car, 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 consider it the only supercar in the Kei Car segment. The perfect chassis, gullwing doors and decent performance made it the favorite driving machine in Japan.
The bizarre styling but lively driving dynamics provided a unique driving experience. And this is one of the reasons you should consider importing this little gem. Although they never sold it outside of Japan, you can now import it to America since it is older than 25 years.
