Slammed Pandem Ford Raptor Drops in Tokyo

How low can you go?

Here's something you don't see everyday—a slammed, wide-bodied Ford Raptor. The Raptor is one of our favorite pickup trucks of all time and it's really hard to make it look any better, but the mad geniuses at Tra Kyoto, the parent company of Pandem/Rocket Bunny, managed to impress us with its latest creation.

Is it practical? No, but you can bet it would look pretty badass creeping along a Ginza promenade or doing the curbside crawl through the Roppongi district of Tokyo. Heck, it'll probably even look good rolling down Paradise Road at next year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

Aside from the obvious lowering kit, the front end gets a Pandem spoiler and a fat set of Toyo Tires all around. Chunky body panels around the wheel wells look bolted on and the rear end looks mostly stock with dual shotgun pipes.

Ken Block, BJ Baldwin, and Masato Kawabata will also be there with Block's Mustang, Baldwin's Tundra, and Kawabata's surprise ride—so this rad Raptor should fit in nicely.

The 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon kicks off this weekend and runs from January 12-14. Stay tuned for more wackiness from the show.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D.

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
