We didn't intend for this week to be so dominated by Japanese cars, but when something demands your attention, sometimes you just have to share it.
We have long been a fan of the crazy world of bosozoku, as well as being intrigued by the lengths people go to one-up each other on more 'normal' rides, so imagine our delight when we find a bosozoku who is going directly for the craziest exhausts ever.

The most brilliant thing about this is you can see them out, on the open road, for us they suddenly make more sense, particularly travelling in the large group that they are in. Whilst for a lot of people this may not be an easy thing to understand or appreciate, you have to at least respect the all or nothing nature of this type of modification.
Unless something else earth shattering occurs we'll be bringing you some non-Japanese cars tomorrow!
