Those sweeping flared arches on the orange one are beyond hideous. How anyone can take a car which in its original form has such beautiful lines and do that to it escapes me. But I am prepared to accept that some people may really love it. Just not me. Each to their own, as they say.
I'm with the Pic of the Month winner ... just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD ... !
That latest bodykit design from Star Road was always going to be polarizing. I'm all for arch flares and JDM styling (down with UK/US-spec blandness and originality! ), but it's a bit much for me too tbh! Likewise, I'm not a major fan of the Rocket Bunny bodykit on Sung Kang's "FuguZ" that was unveiled at SEMA. I think that car would have been just as impressive had the flares been a little bit more traditional rather than stylized; same goes for this car.
Having said that, Inoue-san does make some great cars and is one of the most well-known movers in the Japanese old skool tuning/modding scene with wonderfully detailed resto-mods and big HP, big capacity stroker engines. The blue car in the video is a beauty that's been around for quite a while. I also really liked the very slick look of the grey one - I haven't seen that one before. The extended front grille looked nice - enhanced the shark-like nose profile. The KGC10 Hakosuka - with standard rear arches for a change - was also a stand-out. Clean.
As Rob says though, each to their own.
I'd agree with Richie. The other cars look superb but the orange one in not to my taste.
The orange car reminds me of this:
About as tastefull as the music!!
First thing I did was turn the sound off.
spec savers come to mind Sir
