Tokyo Auto Salon 2015: Day 2, Part 9-The fast and the curious

Of course by no means are these the least interesting cars on show but rather, i thought it made sense to compile the last few of my Tokyo Auto Salon automotive images into this final TAS vehicular post. Take it as a small gallery of bonus images if you will.

I have no idea how much power this is pushing out but i reckon this is one Prius you wouldn’t want to take on at the lights.

Impul showcased a rather tasty fleet of tweeked Nissans.

Infiniti Q50 (Nissan V37 Skyline) looked especially good.

An earlier Skyline also decked out in Impul goodies.

Impul also makes bits for those with smaller autos.

Pictures of these are all over the interweb but seeing one in real life was still quite the treat.

It looks really really good and if the previous Roadster did nothing to stir your senses, this one just might.

A rather handsome car straight from the factory, the new Mazda Atenza (6) was quite a popular base car for various aesthetic treatments.

One of the best looking wagons on sale now? I sure think so.

RE Amemiya also had an Atenza on show, of course with a more function over form approach.

Blitz’s Mazda Demio (2) also sported a more sporty look and worked perfectly with those Enkei Mesh wheels.

On the same stand, Blitz also participated in the Copen styling exercise with their rendition of Daihatsu’s latest compact roadster.

Works for me! Although the recently announced pricetag in Singapore for this car is all kinds of stupid. (About USD$82,000 if you’re interested)

For a little less money but still no chump change, punters can have one of these baller Gran Turismo rigs in their home.

Funky car, funky boot.

Speaking of boots, there were MANY MANY seriously insane audio builds on show.

I know this was previously featured but i didn’t show you the interior…

…check that out. The next time anyone says your car is girly, point them in the direction of this Majesta.

Not many Itashas this year.

Even though most of the cars were “dope”, there were of course some questionable choices made.

Going along with the theme.

Here’s one way to stand out, bring along an old vintage Mini Clubman woody.

Complete with mandatory picnic gear. You wonder why Mini never revisited this form of expression on their latest cars. Would have at least made for some interesting merchandise.

Honda also not forgetting their heritage.

And with that, here’s a preview of our next (and final) TAS post! Thanks for staying with me so far!
