(PICS) 1/24 Mazda Autozam AZ-1
This tiny Japanese market mid-engined sports car was manufactured by Suzuki for Mazda in 1992. It fit into the Japanese KEI market (KEI cars were tiny and limited at the time to 660 CC motors). The Autozam used a turbo to augment the small motor and make it quite peppy and fun to drive.

The diecast model is marketed for the Japanese market by Hachette in 1/24 scale but I found this one from Hong Kong for significantly less cost than the Japanese vendors demand.
Attached also, is a pic of me driving one imported to Canada recently and owned by one of my buddies. It was a blast to drive






Yours truly...driving my buddy's imported Autozam
