Default Tokyo Auto Salon - My coverage!

Few weeks back I decided to attend this year's Tokyo Auto Salon and I just got back from it today 7 hours ago

There are a lot of really nice cars (as expected) so I only took pictures of the ones that really caught my eye.

Thought I'd share these pictures with the forums too so here you go!

Here are the ben sopra 350Zs:
red Z




white z










The mighty nismo 380rs!






Some Z34s

Glad to see that the Bensopra 380SX finally got a proper livery... Love the huge Speedhunters banner.

So... Question... is the trunk basically useless with this wing? or am I missing something. It looks like the trunk lid would smack the bottom of the wing, or at least hinder you from grabbing anything from out of the trunk... That looks silly to me. Definitely "Because Racecar!"

^^^ Lol I agree it's definitely style over basic vehicle function, but if it's an actual track vehicle many racers stand behind the rear bumper-mounted wing... Such Racecar.

No I didn’t! I thought the girls modeling looked particularly lovely.

I noticed that 240 has a TT VQ?

I think that Liberty Walk kitted 458 Italia Spider was better left alone.

Thanks for all the good words!
Glad the pictures turned out alright haha.

The models were quite pretty I have to say
That's also where you will find tons of middle aged men taking pictures nonstop haha.

I believe that supra lookalike is based on a suzuki capuccino but not too sure

The stars of the show for me were the Zs but I may be a bit biased
