The Coupe is a microcar built by Frisky Cars Ltd only during 1959 although it was launched in 1958.

Production of the Coupe began in August 1958, but it made its public debut along with the Frisky Family Three and Friskysprint at the Earls Court Motor Show held during October 1958. The car initially used the body of the simultaneously-built Friskysport with an integral, glassed-on roof and steel framed front windscreen, until the Family Three one-piece body became available in 1959. This rear-wheel drive vehicle was fitted with a 324cc Villiers 3T twin-cylinder two-stroke engine capable of generating 16 bhp (12 kW) of power, and reaching speeds up to 56 mph (90 km/h). It also featured leading arm Dubonnet-style front suspension, shock absorber rear suspension, and manual four-speed transmission. The Coupe rode on a wheelbase of 1520 mm, weighed 360 kg, and measured 2.86 m long, 1.41 m wide, and 1.2 m high.

A new example of the car could be bought for £449 and 17 shillings in 1958.
