Daihatsu Copen L880
We’ve all heard of the legendary ABC kei cars, but have you heard of this cute little beast? The Copen of ‘02, a kei car manufactured by Daihatsu that is worthy of being legendary that sadly, many have forgotten about or don’t appreciate much. Featuring a rigid, lightweight body and a fine-tuned suspension, the Copen was a well engineered sporty machine, so much so that is capable of circuit racing. Engineering ingenuity and performance aside, the Copen was styled by the famous Italian design company known as Pininfarina, which explains the Copen’s simple yet cute design. As an added bonus, its a convertible, which allows it’s driver to feel the fresh breeze of air as they drive around. Fast? Yes. Sporty? Cute, but yes. Affordable? Solid yes. The perfect car for those who prefer compact and sporty design, whilst still being capable of racing.
• Car History
“The Copen was originally designed with a 660 cc turbocharged engine in order to meet Japanese kei car regulations. However, since this engine did not meet environmental emissions standards in several other countries, the Copen was fitted with a more powerful 1.3 L non-turbo engine in these markets in 2007. Styling was inspired by the older Nissan Figaro and actual Audi TT Roadster, which has key elements found in the Copen. The leading characteristic of this model was the active top, a motorized hide-away hard roof. However, between 2002 and 2007 there existed a variation with a detachable top. This version was about 30 kg. lighter than the regular model.” – Wikipedia

• How to open the doors/hood & activate/retract active top (Important!)
To OPEN the doors, right click the car and the doors will open. Right click again to get in.
To CLOSE the doors, right click WHILE shifting/crouching.
To retract the top, right click WHILE shifting/crouching WHEN the doors are closed and the top will retract!
To activate the top, right click WHILE shifting/crouching. …. (when the top is retracted)
To OPEN/CLOSE the hood, you will need an item called “Wrench“. You can search it in the Creative inventory. (Yes ik, very dumb choice of a tool to open the hood lol. Wanted to use a hood strut but the pixel art on that looked wack.)
Once you have the Wrench in your hand, right click while holding the wrench and the hood will open. Right click with the Wrench again to close the hood.
In a nutshell, the concept is basically;
Right click/hold + Shift/crouch = Turn the top on/off and close doors
Right click ONLY = Open doors and to get in car … (once the doors are open)
Right click with Wrench = Open/close hood
I’ve made a video showing how it’s done so if you don’t understand words, you can check that video out. The car in the video used is my previous AE86 Trueno addon which shouldn’t be a problem as the concept (animations, door and hood mechanics and sound effects) are the same for this addon (Daihatsu Copen). The only difference is that instead of popup headlights being turned on and off, its the top that get activated and retracted.
• Regarding Mobile Revised
Starting with my ‘77 Pontiac Firebird addon, Mobile Revised versions will not have the ability to open the hood. Door Mechanism 2.0 will still be implemented for Mobile Revised versions meaning you can still open and close the doors. This is to help optimize gameplay for Mobile users.
TL;DR: Mobile Revised versions do not have the ability to open/close the hood, but you can still open/close the doors.
• Advanced sounds
In total there are 6 sound effects for the cars. The list are as follows:
Startup sound effect – When the player sits in the car
Driving sound effect – When the player drives the car
Custom car damage sound – When the car is damaged / takes a hit
Door closing sound effect – When the player closes the door
Door opening sound effect – When the player opens the door
Hood closing sound effect – When the player closes the hood
This addon DOES NOT REQUIRE (any type of..) EXPERIMENTAL MODE.
• How to obtain
Method 1: Get their spawn eggs from the Creative Inventory. They are classified as spawn eggs. You can search “Daihatsu” or “Copen” without the “ for a more convenient way of getting them.”
Method 2: Use /summon commands:
