An interesting exercise in possibility thinking, the Daihatsu D-X Concept was designed to let the owner explore a range of creative packaging choices. The D-X (pronounced D-Cross) Concept is a "Kei-sized" microcar fitted with swappable plastic-composite body panels that allow it to be configured as anything from the two-seat roadster that appeared on the floor in Tokyo to a mini wagon, racing-style barchetta or a closed coupe.

Like all Kei cars, the Daihatsu D-X Concept is fitted with a 660cc engine, in this case a turbocharged/direct-injected gasoline-powered two-cylinder that cranks out about 60-65 horsepower which gets sent to the front wheels. Daihatsu's current Kei car, the Copen, is about to be mustered out of production; and rumor has it that a production-spec variation of the D-X Concept will turn up within the next year to take its place.
