This year’s Tokyo Motor Show featured some really interesting concept cars from Nissan and Honda. The following concepts seem hint that there is still an appeal and interest in an entry level drivers’ car which is something we dearly miss these days. Nissan’s IDx Freeflow sends a strong message with its resemblance to the once reputable Datsun 510; while Honda’s Beat, seems to have grown a bit bigger than its Kei car origins.
First of all, I would like to confess to the fact there was little to no activity on this blog for the past couple of months but its just that work, life and the fact some amazing club members left the UAE earlier this summer, just pushed me a bit away from this community.
Nevertheless I am back with some news and photos of the updated 2015 Subaru Impreza concept. Its good to see that Subaru is back in the scene, their cars are starting to look more distinct and original compared to what they used to offer, ever since the beginning of time.
Japanese car culture never fails to surprise, impress and inspire. There seems to be no boundaries with what statement you make with your car as it all makes sense over there. Thanks to Andreas for the share.
Who doesn’t like a flip out nose?These are some of the things we don’t see in modern cars anymore..
Watanabe Wheels have maintained an iconic status among JDM wheels and among AE86 owners. The somehow retro shape and design is really eye catching; unlike most modern wheels that feature tall skinny spokes and barely any form of beautiful chunkiness you find in the RS Watanabe 8 spoke model.
The 86’s design can hold or absorb bits of subtle retro looks and the car sits pretty on those 17″x7″ magnesium Watanabes. The only issue is that these could cost a fortune to acquire if ordered from Japan.
