Suzusho Supasse V heading for Tokyo Motor Show

Small Japanese car manufacturer Suzusho will reveal their Supasse V at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show.

It will be powered by the 270hp engine out of the Mazdaspeed3. 270hp may not sound like a lot, but the car weighs only 850kg (1,874 lbs). This means it’ll be competing with the amazing Lotus Exige. Based solely on the looks though, I think I’d have the Exige. I can’t judge the car without knowing about how well it handles, especially since it’s up against the brilliantly handling Exige, but apparently Suzusho has made good handling cars before, so this should be good.

Prices should start around $50,000-$80,000, similar to the Exige. Some more details are available in the press release right after the gallery.
