What’s This Engine Bay?S

It's time once again to test your automotive intellectual fortitude by figuring out what car this engine bay's from before you click through. Sure, you'll say you got it right in the comments, but only you'll know the truth.

We must say, this was a particularly sinister edition of BOTD. If you got this one, you're either an automotive encyclopedia or an eccentric Euro-car mechanic. It's the micro-sized, Bertone-styled, 993 cc Daihatsu turbo-powered Nuova Innocenti hailing from Milan's De Tomaso Group.

What’s This Engine Bay?S


This particular model was spotted last weekend acting as a spiffy pit car at the Nelson's Ledges 24 Hours of LeMons race. It was originally imported to Canada and sold as the sporting model with Abarth wheels, that racy turbocharged and intercooled Daihatsu mill, and it even has power windows. If you want a real trip, check out the design on the master cylinder. Quite a unique machine if you ask us, and rare to boot. So rare in fact the owner is selling it for, get this, $11,000. If you want to be the most eccentric Japanese-Italian hot-hatch owner on your block, the privilege doesn't come cheap.
