Hottohatchi: 1990 Suzuki Alto Works RS/R

The Suzuki Alto was a Japanese kei car that has been in constant production since 1979…not that we would know it over here in the land of the giant SUVs. In case you’ve been living on the moon, a kei car is a category for the smallest highway legal vehicles in Japan and it limits the maximum length, width, height, and engine displacement in return for favorable road tax. This third generation Alto Works RS/R is 129.7 inches long, 54.9 inches wide and has a 660cc turbocharger 3-cylinder (6 valves!) that pushes out 61 horsepower and 67 ft-lbs of torque into an all-wheel-drive system. Find this 1990 Suzuki Alto Works RS/R offered for $7,500 in Kingsland, GA via freakbook keijidōshamarket.
