It's been a couple of months now, since I came back from my trip to Japan... and well, basically because I'm one lazy ass, I pretty much forgot about these pics
But as they say, better late than never!
Audi R8: hard to imagine a car that looks better at Ginza at night!
This full-black E60 M5 sounded very loud! Straight pipes anyone?
We spotted quite a few Brabus in Japan, which is quite something considering I've never seen one in Europe, not even in Germany or Monaco!
Quite possibly, the best looking car we saw there!
Datsun 240Z... pure sex on wheels! We spotted the car in a parking lot in Osaka... and we were lucky enough to see the car "in action" a couple of hours later while we were looking for a restaurant
We were not so lucky with this gorgeous white 308
Looks pretty good with the wide fenders and the racing rear grille... don't know if it's a Michelotto replica or something
K-cars are quite popular in Japan. They have engines smaller than 1 litre (I think)... and this one was by far the funkiest of them all
Ginza. That's the first thing we saw as we step out of the subway. I didn't even had the camera ready... but luckily I got a decent shot of this Countach 25th Anniversary (right?)
It was not the only Lambo we saw at Ginza: Diablo SV and new Gallo LP560-4!
What about this Murcie right in the street of the geishas, in Gion, Kyoto?
Pure coolness: full-black Maser QP!
A japanese modern classic: Mazda RX7...
We were quite lucky with these Minis. As we left our hostel, I saw some Minis going down the road. Some of them were pretty nice. As we were arriving to the turistic-attraction-of-the-day... there they were, all lined up in front of the entrance!
I have to say that the green one if one of the sweetest Minis I've ever seen! The interior is fucking perfect!
New Minis are not as cool as the original ones... although there're always exceptions, like this Clubman Cooper S on Alpina wheels
Another car that you can only see at Japan: Lancer Evo Estate...
Only in Japan is also valid for bikes: what about this mini-size Honda NSR?!
Neons and spinners... all in one. I'm lost for words...
The R35 GT-R is the Nissan that takes all the credit... but for me the real Skyline will always be the R32
... although I wouldn't say no to a nice R33 either
From far, it looked like a real Speedster... a little closer, it look like a tuned, widened Speedster (I was shocked!)... but from close, it was clear it was a Beetle-based replica (I think)
Very cool Clio V6 Mk1!
Another car we don't get here: Subaru Forester STi...
Koya-san is a small town in the mountains, plenty of temples all around, relax everywhere... and out of nowhere this rally-prep Impreza appeared!
I love it! (It's the same place where we spotted the Mini gathering... so I guess there must be some pretty nice roads around the area)
Last car I'd lke to point out, this cool Suzuki Jimmy super-off-road... not the first of its kind we saw there! They look very cool!
