Tokyo Auto Salon - Event

TAS is also a great indicator of where the aftermarket scene is going, but most of all it’s a place to take away a lot of inspiration.

The Tokyo Auto Salon is a cultivation of everything Japanese in the automotive world, where enthusiasts get a taste of parts, trends and styling to come. TAS is also a great indicator of where the aftermarket scene is going, but most of all it’s a place to take away a lot of inspiration.

Modp 1104 01 o+tokyo auto salon+front view Photo 2/33   |   Ama-san at RE-Amemiya has created an all-new widebody kit for the RX-8 with much more aggressive styling than any RX-8 kit we’ve seen.

It was a welcome sight seeing companies like Veilside and HKS return to the show, hinting that the industry has every intention of fighting back as the economy begins to pick up. Japanese manufacturers never miss a chance to show us what they’ve been working on with such notable unveilings as Nismo’s racing RC version of the R35 GT-R, STI’s full lineup of tS models (topped off with the ’11 Nrbugring 24h GVB race car), while Lexus gave us hints that TRD will soon be offering exciting tuning parts for cars like the CT200h and the IS-F.

With more than a quarter-million attendees at the ’11 Tokyo Auto Salon, traffic has been up from years past and while the tuning market may be a bit stagnant in Japan, it’s not going anywhere soon. >>
