Rapidly changing trends in Japan were responsible for the birth of the k-class sports cars in the early '90s. Honda had a roadster called the Beat, Suzuki produced the Cappuccino and Mazda came out with an amazing coupe named the AZ-1.The trio was popularly referred to by the Japanese as "ABC". But what only a few people know is that the AZ-1 was joint venture of Mazda and Suzuki. Mazda designed chassis and Suzuki designed power train (including engine). Suzuki supplied them to Mazda who assembled chassis and power train into complete vehicles. The result is one of the most unique sports cars ever built. It is very unlikely, that you see such a car outside Japan. However I managed to buy one. With just four known AZ-1 in the UK it is the only Cara in Europe.
