RO in Japan | Nagoya Exciting Car Show

By  | 

 Another day, another trip down south for a car show in Japan. The Nagoya Exciting car show was recommended by my friend Colin to check out. This was a car show filled with every JDM fanboy’s dreams. Japanese racing cars from drift to time attack were in an attendance and so were the companies that built or sponsored them.

Wide RX-7 drift ready on a set of Enkei T6S.

The Endless FT86 rocking a blue panther livery on some Enkei PF01.

All of these Japanese company cars make rocking Enkei wheels that aren’t RPF1s look good.

jptrip2 121

This track Mercedes AMG GT was looking deadly at the show.

jptrip2 124

What’s cool in Japan is that they are super into sports compact motor sports. Walking around the show there were a ton of  compact cars that were designed for the track.

Triplets of Abarths.

This wide E90 was looking mean on Work Meister M1R.
