Yes that's a Nissan Juke.

Everything that is blue is actually EL wire so when the lights are off, the entire interior glows

This car is made ENTIRELY out of clay and is hand-made by an amateur. Pretty damn good!

That should take care of things for today. More to come tomorrow.

Oni Camber - a majority of the vehicles had this camber-tilt this year including the 'stock' vehicles showcased by Subaru, Ford (yes, Ford was there), Nissan and Toyota.

Amateur photographers clamoring to photograph the ex-porn-stars that were modeling for this display. One was a 'JR Model' (began doing softcore bikini/lingerie stuff before she was 18) and the other is well known for... well.. banging her dad. No thanks.

that car was driven in the 24 hs of Nürburgring in Germany last year and won it´s class. Nissan even paid some money to get the meaningful starting grid number 123...

Kazunori Yamauchi himself was one of the drivers at that event...

This one must be a replica then as it's been parked several times in Akihabara for various reasons. It's just a show-car, those aren't real diamonds OR Swarovski's. (When parked in Akiba, I shot a few images of it and got within about 8 inches - NOBODY questioned me or stopped to tell me to back off so it's totally not the original one)

If true, I've eaten the point.
$ 48 million is a lot of money.

Apologies.

Now for those who've never been to the Tokyo Auto Salon, imagine this building... and the two building's of the same size adjoining this hall on either side... PLUS one more across the street connected by sky-walk... and a 3-acer field (yea, frucking HUGE for Japan, eh?) temporarily paved (seriously, the pavement is gone today) where a drifting competition is held. Then you can grasp how sexy, sweet, erotic, boner-inducing, drip-forming, wet-panty-grooming of an even this really is.

This Is The Auto Salon. Welcome.
