Daihatsu Basket Concept Shows its Weave in Tokyo

Style over substance

Daihatsu has officially unveiled the Basket concept at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Featuring retro styling and a two-piece removable roof, the concept looks like a picnic basket-inspired Jeep Wrangler. As the name implies, the B-pillar resembles the handle of a basket when the roof is lowered.

Inside, the concept features a modern interior "that evokes the feel of linen material" and a truck-like rear bed behind the seats.

Based on the Mira, the Basket has a 660cc engine and an all-wheel drive system.

the basket, IMO it looks like the homosexual version of the Jeep wrangler (LMFAO) and a weird convertible Austin Maxi!!!

Maybe next year a sequel can be based on the classic lunch box with the arc-shaped lid. A bowling ball bag car would also be beyond wonderful.
