It’s been a while since we last heard from Daihatsu so it was a bit surprising to find out that the Japanese automaker actually attended the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show with a concept called the D-X, pronounced d-cross. And to make things better for these guys, the concept actually looks good!

We don’t have an answer as far as a production future for the D-X Concept is concerned, although it appears that Daihatsu is promoting it as a Transformers-inspired vehicle that can take the shape of a number of vehicles, including a convertible, a roadster, a sporty van, and even a race car. Talk about taking versatility to a whole new level.

The D-X has a base look that can be shifted in a variety of different ways to suit the driver’s preference. Under its hood, the concept runs on a .66-liter two-cylinder engine that comes with direct injection and turbocharging technology. The words ’turbocharging’ and ’Daihatsu’ are about as likely to be put on the same sentence as Pintos and Ferraris, but the mere fact that it is actually speaks volumes to the strides Daihatsu is making in turning a new leaf for their company.

Daihatsu D-X is seriously excellent in their designing! I think the color is ugly though.

Well now, this one actually looks good. I love how they did the over all design of the car, which is really quite simple, but definitely breathtaking in its own right. Anyway, I love the simple detailing that it had, but I noticed that it is a small sport cabriolet vehicle, which a bit looks of cute.

I just had wonder if why they say that this concept is a versatile vehicle. I just really like the aesthetic and cool design of this concept. I just do hope that they would also make some video of its speed performance.

I wonder if why they say that this concept is a versatile vehicle? Well, I hope that they would already reveal its official details, especially on its figure performance, and I will surely be looking forward to determining that soon. smiley

To be honest, it’s the first time that I’ll be going to be impressed with a vehicle that is made by Japanese. Well, I just really love the aesthetic and cool design of this concept. However, I still notice that it had a weak engine output.

I wonder if they really put this kind of concept into the market? Well, I had just seen lots of Tokyo made car, which is truly looking so impressive and cute, but I never heard any news that they put it on the market.

It is really looking so cute with its platform, but if I’m not mistaken this one is a race car right? Well, if it truly is I don’t think that its 66-latter two-cylinder will only be good enough at it.

The platform of this concept is really so confusing, but I still find it cool most particularly on the design of its wheels. Anyway, I hope that its engine could be really good enough for this roadster.
