Suzuki - Suzulight SS - 1955
« em: 04 de Novembro de 2011, 13:19 »


This was Japan’s first proper 4-wheeled minicar. It was released in October 1955 with a 2-stroke, 360 cc engine. The "Suzu" of the name was an abbreviation of its manufacturer, Suzuki, and "light" indicated both the nimble operation of the car and evoked an image of illumination. The Suzulight was the first Japanese vehicle to successfully mount a 2-stroke engine in a 4-wheeled car, and it was also the first wholly Japanese vehicle to use a front-engine front-wheel drive set up.

Tinha ideia que o primeiro JA de tracção dianteira de produção em série tinha sido o Subaru ff-1 no entanto este é bem mais antigo...
