As we said a few pages back, Tokyo Auto Salon is the premier event for new JDM product debuts related to all that is the import aftermarket industry. From just about every new suspension part you could ever think of, to wheels, aero and electronics, to the random-ass JDM trinkets you'll be sweating on eBay. Honestly, if I wasn't a hair away from being completely poor and homeless, I probably would've filled a suitcase full of goods myself for the return flight home. Unfortunately, I'm not your guy. What I did manage to bring home, though, were a bunch of sucky pictures for you to staple together a wish list. Enjoy!
With Spoon Sports admittedly sitting in the dust for the past two years or so, the company is aiming to come back stronger than ever and is looking to stir the pot in any way possible. For starters, this open air hardtop concept for the Honda S2000. Though we're unsure if the hardtop will ever actually reach production, the new roof features a 3-piece, open air system for the "ultimate driving experience" as well as tiny divets on the exterior replicating those of a golf ball in an effort to obtain a more efficient air stream. There is no doubt that this Spoon Sports debut was one of the most talked about releases of Tokyo Auto Salon. Joining the JDM movement are the all-new front and rear bumpers. Keep an eye on Spoon Sports. They've got a few things in the works that will definitely bring you back around.
Varis is always coming out with new, quality aero and this year at Tokyo Auto Salon was no exception with the debut of the all-new Varis R35 GT-R body kit. With more than a few interchangeable configurations, this JDM kit is the ultimate option for the enthusiast looking to break away from the pack. Additionally, it simply looks hard AF. We also couldn't help but ogle over the Varis aero on the 370Z placed just outside the booth.
Trust came out with guns blazing. In addition to the six battle-ready booth cars, Trust finally unveiled the official GReddy X Rocket Bunny R35 kit to win the Best Concept Car award of Tokyo Auto Salon 2014. Be on the lookout for this aero through GReddy in the near future. Lord knows we can't wait to catch one of these blasting down the 405.
Fujitsubo brought out more than a few prime examples of "just the tip" for our JDM viewing pleasure. Be sure to swing by fujitsubo.com for all your respiratory needs for the 86/FR-S/BRZ, Fit, Odyssey and beyond!
Turbos, dash clusters, intakes, clutches-Oh my! Blitz has you covered on all your 86/FR-S/BRZ needs. If you're more interested in the oddities, Blitz also has a wide variety of new products for the kei market as well as Odyssey and Fit platforms.
From power braces and shift retainers to throttle bodies and oil coolers, Cusco had a grasp on just about every possible interchangeable bit for the 86.
With Recaro being just about the only place to take a seat in the convention center, I couldn't help but notice the fresh, newly designed Sportster/Cross Sportster and Comfort seats. Maybe not the most enticing options for the import market, but definitely an attractive product. Comfortable, too!
Who doesn’t love JUN? With all new power packages for the FA20, RB and VR platforms we’re sure you’ll be feeling their presence here in the near future.
Can't say the carbon-fiber front lip is a bad option.
