A fun car, Daihatsu's modern take on the Mini Moke is a tiny jeep-style vehicle with open bodywork and no doors.

"Built on the concept of sandals", it has a wipe-down, waterproof interior, mesh-covered hammock-style seats and a wooden deck-style floor, yet it also has a serious four-wheel drive powertrain. It has the same 660cc, three-cylinder engine as in most Daihatsu models, turbocharged for a bit more boost.

Can we have one for our summer holidays, please? It's only a show car at the moment, but there has to be a market for this kind of thing in tourist resorts and sun-loving beach resorts.
 
Sandals.... I thought the Kombi was the seminal hippy car? Maybe we have a new one?
 
i can just imagine copping a hummer towpull or a landcruiser winch to the head...
