Sure i could have taken a taxi cab […]Read more "Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2015: Hardcore Tokyo Fresh Meet in Odaiba-Part 2"

If you have ever lusted over a Supercar, you’ll probably find it here one day or another. This is the showroom of dreams, this is Bingo Sports.

Surprises are always fun (the good ones as least), most people enjoy a surprise or two, so upon landing in Tokyo and on my way out to Yodabashi Akihabara for a data sim card, i chanced upon this very uniquely decorated i3 in BMW Group Studio right next to Tokyo Station.
