The Bonsai is a 2-door sports car in Driver: Parallel Lines.
The Bonsai is mostly based on a 1973 Toyota Celica GT. It shares its front lights, and its main body shape. However, the Bonsai seems curvier than its real counterpart. The stock vehicle comes with circular headlights, chrome bumpers and mirrors and 5 spoke rims. The vehicle also features a single exhaust system and a black front skirt.
The car's handling and acceleration makes it a perfect getaway car for missions. It has very nippy handling and good traction, both playing very well together in giving it perfect maneuverability. Its acceleration is rapid, allowing it to easily keep up with high speed vehicles and even allows for fantastic braking. The car's small, lightweight design gives it better handling, however it is sometimes prone to fishtailing, especially with the vehicle's impressive power, causing it to tailspin even more. The small but powerful engine transfers power to the rear wheels through a 4-speed gearbox.
