In our last post, we showcased a variety of Import automobiles found on the show floor. Today, we continue with our feature on Imports but i think it’s time to up the ante just a little. It’s time to go high-end. Ladies and gentlemen, here are some of the big monied builds of the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon.
Go big or go home! I guess that’s one of the philosophies of a certain individual we spotted roaming the halls.
Morohoshi-san had a rather well sized booth too. Gone is the Boom-Craft brand and in its place, Fighting Star! Catchy. The cars though, remain as outlandish and OTT as they can ever be.
Except maybe, this new Huracan, with only a few bits of aero bolted on. I’m guessing its journey into Morohoshi’s family is only in its infancy.
Now we’re talking! One of the most striking cars at Fighting-Star’s booth!
Truth be told, before i watched Luke Huxham’s film on this interesting character, i never understood the cars. I thought they were hideous, but after listening to his backstory and seeing the context in which these car are born, i’ve begun to like them.
Especially when combined with the forces of Liberty Walk!
Just pure madness don’t you think? I love it.
Another huge attention grabber at Fighting Star’s booth was this Gallardo in full GT3 spec! What was grabbing attention though wasn’t the car itself but that those big logos on the bonnet and sides actually light up! Seriously…
Check this out…
How’s that for getting attention down the shopping streets of Orchard Road. Not too sure if the cops will appreciate it as much though.
This might be a little more police friendly. Pikachoooooo~~~ I choose you~~~
And just in case you want even more shiny shiny bits on your Lamborghini and think Fighting Star’s car is not quite bling enough. Check this one out, from Nakagawa Japan.
The owner of Nakagawa was in the back of his booth chatting with his staff, and i kid you not, he was in a full fushia pink suit with matching hair. I guess this car isn’t really for the introvert.
The interior looked rather simple for a car that’s so out-of-this-World shiny.
For those who prefer their Lambos with a little less flash (that sentence didn’t really make any sense right?), there’s Vorsteiner, who’ve brought along a trio of Sant’Agata supercars.
Roberuta also ditched their iconic F40 showcase in favour of a couple of Lamborghinis. Lambos for everyone!
TWS brought along a Hyuara courtesy of Bingo Sports. It was a beauté.
Also at TWS was this lovely F40. Can’t get enough of this car, though i think the wheels didn’t really look quite right if you asked me. The rear really needs some strong levels of dish for it to work.
And yet another Ferrari at TWS. This time an F12 TDF.
Since we’ve moved on to Ferraris, let’s continue with a 488 from World Platinum.
Another 488, this time from SVR (Super Veloce Racing), fitted with a very aggressive looking F1 style front bumper.
Stunning F12 with quite possibly the best looking wheels of the show. At least for me.
Just look at ’em! Pokal Custom Felgens.
Another car on Pokal Custom wheels. Don’t they look amazing.
One of the most striking imports at the show was this R8 from Newing. Looks like it leapt right off the race track!
Badass. This particular car took home a runner up award in the Import category. I’m keeping the winner for another feature. 😛
Nakagawa Japan also brought along a Levante. Wasting no time before slapping on some widebody overfenders. Looks much better now right?
There were also a number of SLS AMGs on display, all in various states of tune. Which do you prefer?
Too much? Ok, let’s move on…
There were some Bentaygas on show as well. It’s really quick how these aftermarket tuners are able to produce parts for cars which have just gone on sale not too long ago.
Fairy Design’s Bentayga. Do you think adding aftermarket bits on the Bentley SUV make it look slightly less premium?
Speaking of premium SUV-ish cars, Tokyo seems to have a pretty fond relationship with the G-Wagens from Mercedes-Benz. I don’t think i can recall seeing more G-wagens roaming City streets anywhere else!
Bond Japan also had a hopped up G-Wagen at their booth and though this looked absolutely sweet and badass, they had another very very interesting machine on show.
No, this ain’t no ordinary Defender…
This, is a Tweaked Automotive Spectre Edition Defender. Inspired by the “baddie” cars from the James Bond (heh) movie of the same name. This is a full custom.
If you looked closely enough, you can see the Spectre plaque.
Want one? That’ll be about SGD$50,000 please, and no, that does not include the price of a Defender, you’ll need to buy that on your own. But then again, since you’re gonna be a Bond baddie, what’s 50 grand to you?
Japan once again showing the World that nothing is too sacred to modify, here’s a couple of Astons from ACR (Alpha Classics Racing) Performance.
Blown off wrap showcasing an engine graphic.
No it’s not European but i think it fits this Import feature.
I’m really not a fan of the Forgiato cars.
To help us get over that Forgiato Corvette, here’s some eye candy in the form of a very striking white DB11 over at Yokohama’s booth.
