The fusion of classic design and modern innovation takes center stage with the resurrection of the iconic Autozam AZ-1 in digital form. Though discontinued long ago, this diminutive kei car continues to capture the imagination of automotive enthusiasts worldwide.

Originally introduced by Mazda in 1992, the Autozam AZ-1 boasted a mid-engine layout and compact dimensions, making it a beloved icon of its era. Despite its modest power output from a Suzuki-supplied engine, the AZ-1’s lightweight construction enabled spirited performance on the road.

Designer Alessandro Gardini breathes new life into the AZ-1 with a contemporary reinterpretation, retaining its original charm while incorporating modern design elements. With sharp edges and larger wheels, Gardini’s vision transforms the AZ-1 into a head-turning marvel fit for the digital age.

Gardini is not alone in recognizing the potential of the AZ-1, as evidenced by Liberty Walk’s LB40 conversion and previous attempts to reimagine it as a Ferrari F40 or Chevrolet Corvette C8. These tributes pay homage to the enduring legacy of the AZ-1 and its enduring appeal among automotive enthusiasts.
