The Mazda Suitcase car was first produced in Japan in 1991 as part of a contest held at Mazda’s Engineering department. The idea was simply to have a 3-wheeled car inside a suitcase. The original suitcase car was destroyed in a car park just a few months after it was built but the vehicle was rebuilt in a black suitcase in 1994. (The original case being red)

Powered by a 40cc two stroke engine the vehicle holds enough fuel for around two hours of driving at speeds up to 27 mph. It is built around a small steel chassis and is steered by handlebars.  It also includes head lamps for night time driving and functional brake lights and indicators to warn other road users of your actions.

The Suitcase car is now maintained by Road/Race Engineering in Huntington Beach, California.
