* MOKE Sport (1993)
A sport car from MOKE?
Make a sport car from MOKE, taking the advantage of its strong twin tube monocoque.
That was the concept of MOKE sport.It was commercialized and one-make* race was held later on. There are some MOKE sports on the street with license plates.
* One-make race: a type of race in which all the competitors use the same make car.
