Oldies Vs Newbies

Came across the Suzuki Lapin (shown below) few days back. Found tat it looks very smiliar to the Austin Mini Clubman produced in the 70s . Haha. Retro strike back sia. However the new Lapin is a juz a 658cc japanses kei car. Weighing a mere 790kg, the fuel consumption is a very healthy 19.8 km/l. The Lapin comes in both turbo and non-turbo versions. The turbo engine churns out an impressive 64bhp while the non-turbo one manages 54 bhp.
However the killing part is the price. Will u pay $58k juz to get a 658cc young sweet thing? Tink abt it. =)
Dun forget some problems u will face if u wan to get one.
- Ah bengs & ah sengs will over take you. Point @ u and laugh.
- Ur demanding gf will wan to break up with u.
- Ur grandparents will ask "hei boy, how cum u buy the same car tat we drove 30 yrs ago?"
- U r travelling at 100km/h and the car starts to tremble. Ur gf will ask u " is tis the fastest u can go?" as she see a evo overtake u. Song bo?
