    Yep, they have quite a lot of exotics. BUT they usually don't let you take pics unless you have press pass for these meetings. (Analog pics are okay)

    Surely the eye candy thread, this is.

    Thanks for posting!

    What the heck is the number of Lambos per capita in Japan?!?!

    I can't put my finger on it, but something seems out of place in this picture...:D

    My thoughts exactly. Do the cars have so much understeer at high speeds that it needs downforce on the front wheels??? LOL

    Its a Countach. It doesn't need a reason to have stuff bolted on that has no function.

    Probably these are done for looks. Many exotic buyers in Japan modify their cars, so there's only one in the world. You can see how ricers blood runs in these exotics, right? People just have different taste.

    Could anyone name all cars on this thread? There must be some cars that I never heard of before...

    I wasn't a fan of the body kits either. Some things just don't belong on an exotic. The clean look is the only way to go.

    Some very nice cars though.

    i believe thats the way they came from the factory............early attempts at getting more down force up front.......one of the ugliest options on a Lambo, evaaaar!!!

    it seems like Japan is the biggest market for exotics isn't it?
    but how come they attempt to modify = ruin some already gorgeous Diablo?

    also: is that a rare Cizeta Moroder V16 or just another modified Diablo?
    If so: what was the total production of those 16 cylinder machines?

    SCHUPPAN 962??? is that serious looks like Porsche-based

    That's not exactly a POS. It's a toyota century, a japanese market only sedan/limo with a 5L v12. It includes such features as a fold-down opening through the front passenger seat, so if you're sitting in the back and want to stretch out your legs, they can go through and rest on the front seat.

    It's definitely a Moroder.
    Only 8 were produced.

    Not a Moroder (that was dropped before production), just Cizeta, and 10 were produced (9 coupes + 1 spyder).

    Is the Enzo in the pic in front of the 996tt Rosso Scuderia, or is it just the lighting?
