Diahatsu Copen 0.66 Turbo, 5 Speed Manual Roadster, 54 Reg. 46,386 miles, (Very Rare), future classic. ULEZ exempt. 10 months MOT, March 2022.
Described as a future classic by HonestJohn and Autocar. Prices on Diahatsu Copen’s have started to creep up and definitely worth buying and holding onto.
Very reluctant sale of my wife’s, low mileage, rare and desirable Daihatsu Copen Roadster which she has owned since 2010. Very high specification car from new.
Apologies for the long description but want to be honest and clear from the outset, genuine sale of future classic.
We bought this car as her first car, before she took her driving test, from salvage 75, Leicestershire damaged, it had front damage but was not serious, and professionally repaired by Spray Station (Toyota/Lexus) approved, which is still in business and recently gave the car a full paint correction and polish, at a cost of £350.00, Spray Station is an approved repairer and vehicle was fully inspected and passed by DVLA inspection centre once repaired back in 2010, the car has had no issues whatsoever since it was repaired to a high standard and maintained by us regardless of cost.
Since owing the car she never passed her driving test due to personal change in circumstances, work commitments, etc and the car has been dry stored and part of my own classic car collection since and has only been used sparingly.
She is now taking her test and we are now also planning on having a family and we’ve realised the car won’t be suitable now, once we have kids so genuine reason for sale after so many years of ownership, it was her dream car at the time but now we will need something more suitable for planned extended family.
Now about the car.
