Japanese tuners show how it's done at Fatlace's established car show

Jul 22, 2015

Time and time again, Japan has proven to be a beacon of inspiration when it comes to cars, how to build them, what's cool and what's not. Honoring this belief, Fatlace Creative Director Mark Arcenal and his crew gathered the freshest cars around for the Offset Kings Japan car show, run in collaboration with Formula D Asia. Japan is still, seemingly, the undisputed king of car trends and OK was the perfect forum for many artisans' craft. Of course, car style is intensely regional; you might have heard of a few such areas, like Osaka, Chiba, and Saitama. Regardless of region, we found local JDM car culture to be universally fascinating.

"I thought the event was great," Arcenal observes. "There's a lot of culture in Japan. Our show is all about culture and we accept everyone that's down with the culture. We don't turn people away cause it's all about enjoying the people around us."

The widebody craze has been around for some time, and some people may have an antagonistic approach to it, but seeing Tsuyoshi's Liberty Walk Infiniti G37 rolling on Work Meister M1 was pure eye candy. Super Street awarded Riichi Shimanaka with an Editor's Choice Award for his clean Rocket Bunny Nissan 180SX. Riichi swapped in a fresh SR20DET motor and his Work Meister wheels were custom painted by No Limit. At the Formula D vender village you can see Liberty Walk's arsenal of widebody exotics as well as Kei Miura's latest aero design, the V2 Boss S14.

The sounds of Formula D Japan ripping tires on Fuji Speedway and the sight of stunning cars at Offset Kings was, for a lack of better words, JDM nirvana. More than likely we will continue to look to our friends here in Japan for influence. The tuners constantly push the envelope and have mastered a way to protect traditions while innovating where needed.
