Osaka Auto Messe 2017 Part 3

More incredible cars from Japan’s second largest show!

It’s uber rare to find a third-generation Toyota MR2 (MR-S in North America) that looks as clean as this beautiful one done by Pit Road M. We’ve known this group to build some badass cars over the years. Remember their Mitsubishi GTO we spotted at last year’s Tokyo Auto Salon?

The Honda S660 is a small, mid-engine roadster that’s become a hot item in Japan. Think of it as a modern day del Sol. This is the GARU concept by Mugen. We’re not sure if we hate it or love it, as it has ome supercar similarities, but at least it’s food for thought and something to talk about until the Civic Type R is revealed soon

Speaking of the Type R, here is the Civic Type R Prototype that is making its way to every major auto show.

Osaka Auto Messe had a surprising number of new Nissan 350Z builds. This Z33 from 4010 Stance was pretty menacing in all black along with its mega-wide over-fenders.

Next to it was this Toyota Allion with similar styling and stance.

Here’s a very aggressive Z34 from MAN.Z Factory.

And another 370Z from MJK Customs with a two-tone look on the over-fenders. Yay or nay?

VIP continues to be a strong force in the Kansai region. This Lexus LS400 from Garage ASP1 featured one wicked widebody conversion and custom metallic paint.

Not so soccer mom anymore, we’re really digging these Honda Odysseys.

A look at the camber on the 326Power Lexus RC. Nobody does stance quite like these guys and it’s usually not just for show either. They’re known for building some of the most slammed drift cars.

One of the few D1GP cars on hand – Kazuya Bai’s Origin Labo Nissan 180SX.

Still a bit unsure of how we feel about the body on this Bomex Toyota Supra…

Close up of the Rocket Bunny Bossy Nissan S14 from Man.Z Factory. Two-tone paint/livery schemes are definitely becoming more popular in Japan in order to try and stand out.

Got angle? The 180SX piloted by D1GP’s Hideyuki Fujino.

Old school is very cool–’67 Cosmo Sport and ’82 Mitsubishi Lancer 2000 Turbo.

More JDM classics on display–’66 Toyota 2000 next to a ’72 Skyline 2000 GT-R racing concept.

Subaru never disappoints with their booth, bringing out their STI and BRZ race cars.

Something most of us here still fan boy over; an S15 Silvia from aero parts maker URAS.

Top Fuel didn’t have anything new, but it’s good to see them still doing very well and setting up a display for everyone to appreciate this iconic time attack S2000.

Last but not least, another look at the Gazoo Racing’s Toyota C-HR that raced at Nurburgring last year. Just one of many C-HRs we saw at TAS and now Osaka Auto Messe.
