Description

The Daihatsu YRV GTti (or Turbo 130) was the performance derivative of the Japanese supermini.

All YRVs feature a 1,298 cc all-alloy four-cylinder 16-valve twin overhead camshaft petrol engine with DVVT – Dynamic Variable Valve Timing which optimises power and torque over a wide rev-range. When coupled to the lightweight, fast-response turbo with intercooler, engine efficiency is further boosted. The 1.3 liter engine produced 129 hp (95 kw) and 170 Nm of torque, providing a 0-100km/h time of 8.1 seconds. The car only came with a 4-speed automatic gearbox called “Steershift” which had steering wheel mounted buttons for changing gears.

The car also has an uprated front and rear suspension plus the fitment of a rear anti-roll bar specially developed in the UK after extensive testing on local roads. The front suspension comprises MacPherson struts with offset, variable-rate coil springs, lower wishbones and an anti-roll bar. The rear utilises a semi-independent torsion beam axle with coil springs.

On the exterior the car featured a distinctive bonnet air-intake, large fog lamps set in a black panel, high-gloss, 10-spoke alloy wheels with 175/55 R15 tyres and a standard ‘panorama’ fixed glass roof, stretching from the windscreen over the front seats. Additional exterior features specially developed by the UK importer include twin exhaust tail pipes, special badges, a red background to the front and rear ‘Daihatsu’ logos and striking side stripes. Inside, the UK model benefits from an aluminium foot-rest and leather-bound steering wheel, gear-lever and gaiter.
