Red-Hot Hatch: 1984 Daihatsu Charade Turbo DeTomaso - G11/CB60 Engine

May 26, 2018

I have yet another old-school JDM unicorn for you today that is turbo and so very 80's. This reworked 2nd generation Charade is the result of a special collaboration between Daihatsu and Italian sports-car manufacturer, DeTomaso.

This Charade hatchback was built in 1984. It has a 993cc inline 3 engine.
