5k: Can't Top This: 1991 Suzuki Alto Works RS/X

It never fails to happen.  You post up some funky version of an oddball car and another one appears with a better price tag.  It isn't like you'd expect to see another Suzuki Alto for sale in Canada, much less an example of the crazy RS turbo version...but...here it is.  Find this 1991 Suzuki Alto RS offered for $4,995 CAD ($3,994 USD)


The basic Suzuki Alto was a stripped down Kei car, but the Works version added a turbocharger and all-wheel-drive to up the fun factor. This one has been covered in a crazy racing inspired paint/sticker job, and may have been used as a prop for advertising. 



The Alto Works version is powered by a 660 cc twin cam turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine fed via 12 valves.  The RS/X is rated at 64 horsepower, which happens to be the limit of power for the Japanese Kei car segment, but these little pocket rockets put out more power than rated.

  1. This sure looks like a lot of fun for the money. I could do without the paint/sticker overload but for a few grand who can complain?
