Daihatsu’s UK distributor says it is now more determined than ever to bring the Copen roadster to UK showrooms after almost 1,500 visitors to the British International Motor Show “expressed serious interest” in placing orders. During the two-week show at Birmingham NEC, Daihatsu Vehicle Distributors claimed to have been “inundated” with inquiries about its 660cc turbocharged sports car with a Mercedes SLK-style hard folding roof.
