On the 26th of October, the Tokyo Motor Show kicked off with a roar. Some of the highlights included the Lancer EVO X and the highly anticipated Nissan GT-R. Manufacturers also introduced a handful of concept cars that can only be described as "unique."
Here are my picks for the 10 Coolest and Craziest Concept Cars from the Tokyo Motor Show:
10. The Suzuki PIXY.
Suzuki PIXY This really stretches the meaning of the word car. It can only seat one person and is used for short trips across town. If a longer trip is required, 2 PIXYs can "pair" up and go into a Suzuki Sharing Coach (SSC). They are powered by either solar energy or clean burning Hydrogen. They can also be used inside buildings and easy to use for "non-drivers"
9. The Toyota i-Real
Another concept that really stretches the meaning of the word car. It is basically a 3-wheel scooter with a seat and armrests. You control the vehicle by using a pair of joysticks, one in each hand. The i-Real will also warn you of anything that is within a certain distance by noise and vibration to ensure no collisions.
8. The Suzuki X-Head
At first glance, this looks more like a scaled down Tonka Truck we see kids playing with at the beach. However the X-Head is no toy according to Suzuki. It is dependable and functional, while still offering an enjoyable driving experience. It can also take on different roles by simply changing the bed.
7. The Diahatsu Mud Master-C
Daihatsu Mud Master-C
A compact transporter with a huge amount of cargo space. It is designed with a body-on-frame structure to increase life-span and off-road capability. The cargo area can be accessed by 1 of 3 doors on either side or the rear. The interior sports a single LCD multi-display and moisture repellent upholstery.
6. The Suzuki BiPlane
A new kind of motorcycle design that is based on the 1970's drag bikes. The heart of this machine is a 1000cc twin-cam 4 cylinder. The block it liquid cooled to provide safety and comfort for the rider. The aerodynamics were inspired by riders who compared the feeling of accelerating on a long straightaway to taking off in a jet.
