1994 Suzuki Cappuccino


  • Immaculate condition 
  • Incredible low mileage 
  • Untouched and unmodified
  • Recent major service 


Two seats, front engine, rear wheel drive and nothing but the sky above your head. This combination in the automotive world is a proven provider of enjoyment and exhilaration worldwide. In the 90’s Suzuki took this recipe and introduced it to the Kei Car market, a Japanese car category for tiny, city cars with restricted dimensions and engine capacities. 

They called it the Cappuccino and equipped it with a 3 cylinder, turbo charged 657cc engine, either a 5 speed manual or 3 speed automatic gearbox and a versatile three piece roof system allowing the car to be a Coupé, T-Top, Targa or the roof can be completely removed for the open air fun. 

This UK registered car, was one of only 1,110 Cappuccinos brought to the UK market and is still in original factory configuration with no unsightly modifications or adaptations present. It is in sublime condition thanks to it being garaged for almost its entire life and only being driven for 5,205 miles. The condition, mileage and factory original set up make this Cappuccino a very rare and unique opportunity which will unlikely repeat itself.

  • Original manufacture handbook 
  • Only three owners from new 
  • Garaged for almost its entire life 

Registered 1st of August 1994, the car has been in the ownership of three individuals, the latest having owned since early 2021. The car was first purchased from a Suzuki dealer in St Albans, where it was then shortly sold on to the next owner who was based on the Isle of Wight. This second owner impressively had another Cappuccino which was used on a daily basis, this additional car was garaged and strictly only 
purchased for show.

In March 2021 the car was purchased by its current owner, who couldn't pass up on the opportunity to own such a unique car and thanks to their personal ties with Suzuki they have managed to maintain the vehicle with all original and genuine parts. A small amount of documentation of any servicing and maintenance work are present, with the original service book containing 2 stamps plus the PDI record. In addition, a Cappuccino brochure is present alongside the original owners manual.

  • Black leather bucket seats 
  • Brand new carpets 
  • Immaculate condition 

A simple but super blend of black leather bucket seats, black carpet and black plastic trim are throughout this tiny sports car. Everything is in like new condition, there’s no signs of wear or areas of concern anywhere, which is not surprising considering the car’s mileage and rare use. A more modern radio has been installed to allow bluetooth integration, but the original is present and will come with the car, other than that everything is as it was when it left Japan.

Behind the wheel you’re positioned comfortably and adequately, it may be a small car but the seating position allows for a moderate space for a driver under six foot, with the additional passenger the car will feel a little more crowded but still roomy enough to not hinder any enjoyment.

Overall, a perfect untouched interior with a simple but timeless design.

  • Cordoba Red 
  • Fantastic condition 
  • Tiniest stone chip

Without question the Japanese Domestic Market has introduced some fabulous looking two seater sports cars over the years and in our opinion the Suzuki Cappuccino is one of them.

The sporty design is subtle yet sufficient, a small air intake recess sits between front facing headlights, paired with side vents by the front 7 spoke alloy wheels give the car aggression and an athletic look. The Cordoba red paint looks fantastic, arguably the best colour on these Cappuccinos and an ideal combination with the black interior.

There’s only one tiny blemish we could see which is located by that front intake recess, a very small stone chip that has been touched in and quite frankly, not very noticeable to the average eye. The 4-way, versatile roof system is unscatched with the factory original bags still present which we’re told are sparse with most being damaged or lost. The finish is similar to a graphite dark grey, very attractive especially with contrasting red paint.

  • 657cc 12 valve engine 
  • Turbo charged with intercooler 
  • 5 Speed Manual 
  • Independent suspension 
  • Disk brakes 
During our visit, the car was started with ease and manoeuvred out of its garage for the photographer. A enjoyable, sporty note exits the exhaust encouraging more revving and unhidable smiles, it’s not an intrusive or a loud exhaust, more soft and sensible. In the cars current ownership a new original exhaust, back box and centre pipe have been installed plus a full major service including all belts was carried out.

All parts are genuine Suzuki and have been fitted by a specialist. The car runs like a dream, unsurprisingly, it’s done just over 5,000 miles in 30 years and kept away from the elements for the majority of its life, additional measures such as Waxoyl to the underside have been taken to ensure the cars longevity.

This tiny car is infectious, its sporty looks and stance give it a unique charm but the main joy will come from the driving experience. Low to the ground, lightweight, with reported 50/50 weight distribution make this car more agile than an olympic acrobat. 

Its incredible low and genuine mileage, its untouched, exquisite condition make this Cappuccino an unique opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.


We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
