They were able to develop themselves as a provider of general development support services for cars and various other industrial products. They commit themselves to make further progress as a design and engineering firm, who can offer general development support services covering from product planning, design development, technology development and commercial production design development to various model fabrication and the manufacturing of general inspection jigs internationally, continually in the future to meet increasingly segmented and diversified needs.

A nimble appearance typical to a speedster was not pursued but a design impressing agility suitable for slow cruising around the town as a street fashion. The use of body planes with sharp edges and the light design remind spectators of a paper crane, which is elegantly folded into the shape from a sheet of square paper, an image overlapping with the naming of the concept, 'KIRA (splendor).'

'KIRA' is a term appearing in classic Japanese literature, meaning twilled white or plain colored silk representing elegant, beautiful clothing. Its interior design, however, takes a different approach, proposing the use of various materials including metal, leather and fabrics combined in a manner popular for ornaments.

The instrument panel consisting of the center panel made of brass with corrosion protection and the surrounding leather facing connects to a door trim made of the same material; a combination of various operation parts reminiscent of large brooches, the sheets conveying an image of Kimono and the hard pear-skin finished aluminium floor is a product of a street fashion design technique, which freely arranges various materials.
