DAMD, the tuners who have recently shown a penchant for Aston Martinizing Nissan products, have turned their attention to what is perhaps Japan's quirkiest kei car, the Mitsubishi i. The newest member of DAMD's enormous lineup, this particular i looks like it'd be right at home seeing duty as Darth Vader's runabout if he were forced to ditch his SS for more economical fare.

The diminutive Mitsubishi is drenched in black paint, and benefits from the installation of new side skirts and spoilers front and rear. The parts are available seperately or as a 3-piece set (the two side skirts count as one "piece"). A billet insert spruces up the car's grille opening, and an extra panel dresses up flat black plastic area immediately below the windshield where the wipers live. Finally, 15" black DAMD DS-6 wheels ( the "6" indicates the number of spokes) complete the visual refresh.

It looks great, and it gives us just another reason to be bummed at the fact that Mitsubishi's slick little kei is for Japanese fans only. If there's a market for the Smart here, there's got to be a way to make a business case for something like the i.

      Very cool looking people mover! It appears too narrow from the back but otherwise is neat looking.

      I don't like most of these "new" cars. The only ones I've liked have come from Peugeot/Citroen and Fiat/Alra (love the 500). However, I like this little dude!

      Well "i" be "DAMD" Mitsu should worry more about making an electric Lancer or Eclipse than that. It looks Okay for a whatever category you put it under.

      At first I thought it was a smart car.

      It looks like a luxury car and the wheels are for a sportif car.

      Very nice. Perhaps a model for a 4dr SMART.

      I Like it, I have a smart car, but would like one of these as well, for a family car, now why didn't smart do something like this lovely looking motor, if they had of done, perhaps it would still be going, unlike the four four

      IIRC, the mitsu bought the tooling for the smart forfour when it was discontinued to create the "i"
