VIDEO: JAPAN'S SUPERCAR CULTURE IS UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'LL SEE

Date: 2017-12-30

Video: Japan

The Japanese car culture is unlike anywhere else in the world, filled with locally-produced sports cars, the latest and greatest supercars and a tuning industry that's more prolific than anywhere else on earth. 

On a recent trip to Japan, New Zealand drifting star Mad Mike decided to create a documentary highlighting Japan's custom supercar culture and the video below is well worth a watch. 

One of the heroes of the nation's supercar culture is Wataru Kato, the man behind Liberty Walk. Preferring to set trends rather than following them, Kato has single-handily created some of the wildest supercar creations anywhere. 

At the other end of the spectrum, many Japanese have a love for American cars, turning it into desirable lowriders and affixing all kinds of bling. If you want to stand out on US streets, some simple coloured neons under your car should do the trick. 

In Japan, you have to go ten steps ahead of that, creating wacky wheels, paint and anything the locals consider fun. Even if that means installing an exhaust that stretches 10-feet into the air, that is basically what the Japanese will do. 

Have a look at the Redbull video below.
