In the wake of the announcement that the production of the Copen is coming to an end, Daihatsu confirmed that a special 10th Anniversary Edition of the model for the Japanese market is in the works. The last version of the well-known little roadster from Daihatsu will be produced in 500 units only and will come with a slew of special bits to emphasize its status as a celebration car.
Apart from a few special badges both inside and outside the car the aptly dubbed Daihatsu Copen 10th Anniversary Edition will come with a special set of 15″ alloys courtesy of BBS and a white livery with several chrome details, such as the front grille. Inside we have black leather upholstery with contrasting red stitching, and more chromed details for the hand-brake lever and door handles.
As for the powertrain, this final edition of the Copen will be powered by a 660 cc turbocharged engine delivering 63 hp and coupled to either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. The price for this Daihatsu Copen 10th Anniversary Edition is 1.82 million Yens - roughly 16,700 Euros - for the manual gearbox type, whereas the one with the automatic transmission will cost 20,000 Yens less.
