TOP 10 JDM Cars With Pop-Up Headlights


On this list, we’re going to be talking about
10 JDM cars that feature pop-up headlamps. The best of bunch, in my opinion, is the Toyota
2000GT. However, as it’s such a rare car, it was difficult to find good footage for
it. So therefore, we’re skipping this one. Starting off on our list, we’ve got the Honda
NSX MK1. This car featured the 3.0 or 3.2 C30A, C32B motor, which is a dual-overhead-camshaft
VTEC V6 unit, making from 270 to 290 horsepower. It’s a mid-engined rear-wheel-drive car. It
was better than Ferraris of the time, and is now considered a classic. Second on our
list, is the Mazda RX7 FD of 1991. This one has a 2-rotor engine, 1.3L, codenamed 13B-REW.
It’s a Twin-Turbo unit making 270 horsepower. The engine is put in the front, it’s got rear-wheel-drive,
it’s lightweight and it revs to 8000RPM. On the 3rd place
we’ve got the Mitsubishi GTO of 1990. This one has a twin-turbo V6 motor, codenamed 6G72,
at 3 litres, making 300 horsepower. It’s put in the front, it’s got all-wheel-drive, and
it’s very advanced for the time, featuring active aero and other systems. Fourth on our
list is the Toyota Supra A70 from 1986. This is a 2.5L straight-6 twin-turbo unit at 280
horsepower, codenamed 1JZ-GTE, and put in the front. It’s got rear-wheel-drive and at
the time it was also very advanced, featuring technologies like ABS or changeable damper
rates. On the fifth place ,we’ve got the Fairlady Z Z31 from 1983. This one features a single
turbo, single camshaft 3.0L V6 codenamed VG30ET. It makes 250 horsepower, and the engine is
put at the front, with rear-wheel-drive. It’s noted for having Japan’s first mass-produced
V6. Sixth on our list is the Toyota MR-2 SW20 from 1989. The best engine of the bunch is
the 3S-GTE, a 2.0L Straight-4 Turbo Motor, making 220 horsepower and situated in the
middle. So, this car has got a Mid-Engine Rear-wheel-drive platform. It’s prone to snap
oversteer, having been criticised for being dangerous at the time, and it’s certainly
not a car for newbies at the mid-engine rwd world. Seventh on our list, is the Nissan
180SX S13, from 1989. This one had a 2L, four-cylinder turbo motor, codenamed SR20DET making 200
horsepower and situated at the front, with rear-wheel-drive. It was very popular in the
drifting scene, and it’s also known for being prone to rust. Eighth on our list is the Toyota
Celica T180 from 1989. The GT-Four model had a 3S-GTE motor, like the MR-2, which was a
2L straight-four turbo unit making 220 horsepower, and put in the front, with 4WD. It was inspired
by the rally Celica, and it was the most powerful celica destined for the US market. On the
9th place, we’ve got the Toyota Corolla AE86 from 1983. This had a 1.6L Straight-four naturally
aspirated unit making 110hp, codenamed 4A-GE, which was put at the front, with rear wheel
drive. It was famous for being very lightweight, it was also famous for being in the Initial-D
anime series and was very popular in the drifting scene. And lastly, we’ve got the Mazda Eunos
Roadster, also known as the MX-5 here in Europe, the MK1 generation from 1989. The best of
the bunch, was the 1.8L BP-4W unit which was a straight-4 naturally aspirated motor making
130 horsepower, situated at the front, with rear-wheel-drive. This car has a perfect weight
distribution, is very lightweight, convertible, cheap, and a great introduction to rear-wheel-drive.
