Technically not simple "ricers." These are Bosuzoku cars are a manga (anime) caricature of FIA Group 5 racers. If you understand the story of these race cars and the pull of anime on the Japanese mind, they sort of almost make sense.

Totally insane and I totally love it! They have quite a sense of humor and exaggeration. They do something similar with scooters.

Those hit the local shelves a week or so ago. They aren't terrible looking cars, but I doubt I'll add one to my collection any time soon.

I haven't started mine yet!:wave: This is Mattel's version!:thumbsup:
Ah, I see. Man, they're really letting Jun Imai go nuts. We got the crazy cool Skylines and now this. I think these style cars are a little too out there, but I might grab one of these for giggles if I'm already picking something else up. :lol:

Aoshima did some fine castings in the "sedate " Garuchan style which I think is more of the FIA Group 5 style

They do this in America too, except everybody just laughs... I don't know why. :tongue:

The car that passes by @ 1:14 looks a lot like the Hot Wheels version.

People laugh all right, but generally it's the "laugh with" type instead of the "laugh at" type.

Hey, we Japanese are insane, just check out this clip from a children's cartoon (and no, not politically offensive or even related in any way other than the characters...)
