Since its launch in 2018, the fourth-generation Suzuki Jimny has been modified by a protracted record of tuners from everywhere in the world. We have seen it was a mini Ford Bronco, a Mercedes-Benz G-Class lookalike, a clone of the original Land Rover Defender, and a small pickup truck. The most recent Jimny-based builds discover a totally totally different avenue by giving the off-roader a glance impressed by rally automobiles from the Eighties.
Designed by Japanese tuner DAMD for the 2024 Tokyo Auto Salon, the builds are known as Little 5 and Little Delta, respectively. The identify says all of it: the Little 5 is a tribute to Renault’s 5 Turbo and 5 Turbo 2 and the Little Delta attracts inspiration from the Lancia Delta Integrale. Whereas each fashions had been hatchbacks, the retro look works surprisingly nicely thanks partly to the Jimny’s small footprint and boxy proportions.
Each builds obtain the identical fundamental body kit, which features a deeper entrance bumper that appears a lot nearer to the 5’s than to the Delta’s and flared wheel arches, they usually journey on OZ Racing wheels. DAMD fitted the Little 5 with a redesigned entrance finish that brings rectangular lights and Renault’s diamond-shaped brand, “NON-TURBO” decals on the doorways for a contact of humor, and a roof-mounted spoiler. Blue paint provides a crowning glory to the look. Painted pink, the Little Delta will get a particular grille with 4 spherical lights and shiny trim in addition to a particular spoiler.
DAMD hasn’t launched inside pictures. It appears just like the Little 5 makes use of commonplace Jimny seats whereas the Little Delta receives entrance sport seats.
Technical specs have not been launched, both, however we’ve got an honest concept of what is underneath the hood. Suzuki presents the Jimny with two engines: a turbocharged, 658-cubic-centimeter three-cylinder fitted to base fashions in Japan and a naturally-aspirated, 1.5-liter four-cylinder supplied in the remainder of the world. The decals on the Little 5’s doorways recommend energy comes from the latter, which develops 102 horsepower.
We do not know what’s subsequent for both idea, however we would not be stunned to see each physique kits be part of DAMD’s catalog within the coming months.
