2013 TOKYO AUTOSALON SPECIAL
 

2013 is here! As always, the tuning scene in Japan kicks off the new year with the world famous Tokyo Autosalon. After the GFC in 2009, many countries have been affected. That really reflects in this industry as well. However, for those who had the chance to visit this years TAS event, you will hear that this years event was larger than the previous 2 years.

Last year the focus was mainly on R35 GTR tuning as well as European cars and exotics. This year, with the current fever of the Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ / Scion FRS, there were many of these demo cars present.

Here at Tomei, we will also begin our R&D on the new products for this platform as well. 2013 looks promising indeed.

So for now, we've got some photos from the show for you to see.

Enjoy!

 
We had our all new 86 / BRZ / FRS Titanium muffler prototype on display.
 
As well as our Tomei Technical Trax 2 Way LSD for the 86 / BRZ / FRS.
 
 
MANUFACTURERS BOOTHS
Honda had a cool display setup, with this awesome historical formula car.
 
This Honda Super GT500 car. I love this car. Our ex engineer works for Honda and now works with the team who engineers and develops this car.
 
Nissan had their controversial cool Delta Wing race car there too.
 
Mazda had their LeMans car there too.
 
Diesel powered too.
 
There were a number of SuperGT cars at the event. Japans version of DTM.
 
 
86 / BRZ / FT86 / FRS
As expected, the event was flooded with these demo and race cars.
 
TRD's very own race version. Looking cool!
 
Street spec'd bling versions
 
dark cool wide body versions
 
Almost stock looking light mod versions
 
Funky kitted versions
 
with that big wing look
 
Nomura Ken's all new 86 D1GP machine look.
 
I like the simple clean look of it.
 
The front bumper of this kit doesn't do much for me.
 
More professional race cars are starting to show.
 
TOM's has their demo car too.
 
Naturally, Subaru had their BRZ as well.
 
VIP SEDANS
What would TAS be without the vans and sedans VIP cars.
 
These cars and styles are big here too.
 
These owners spend big on these cars.
 
Even the girls get into these crazy setups and some girls mod their own sedans too.
 
There are the extremists as well.
 
Old school sedans
 
Some are just ugly as.
 
then there are the full custom look styles. Like the KE Corolla wagon on the left.
 
Starship enterprise!
 
What The HELL??
 
Some people do have too much time on their hands.

OTHER INTERESTING STUFF
Stalls with some unique setups
 
Customised licence plates are boring in Japan. You can only chose numbers. That's how these came about. If you were wondering, these plates were not made in Japan.
 
The Kei Trucks were also there with some interesting setups.
 
interesting like I said.
 
with matching bozozoku bikes to with with the truck
 
hmm, only in Japan
 
 
Some American muscle cars were there too. Not many though.
