Out of this world tuning brought to you by Japan [w/video]

Article by Andrew Christian, on May 9, 2016

Japan is a beautiful country and home to some of the quirkiest antics in the world. From weird food to peculiar fashion, Japan is the perfect place to find your inner fun and weird self. It’s a place where eccentricity is normal and normal can become almost boring. It’s where you can freely test waters and try out different combinations and no one will absolutely give a damn as long as you’re happy and confident with what you’re doing.

For some, the eccentric nature becomes a way of life while there are others who divert from the norm just to attract attention. Whatever their reasons may be for trying to be different, they surely attract so much attention from people all over the world.

What easier way to attract attention than to dare to be different in physical appearance. Some would change their clothing style, others would prefer surgical intervention, and there are some who attract attention by the things they own – and one very good example is an out-of-this-world tuned car.

Japan has a subculture called the “Bosozoku” which translated literally means “running-out-of-control tribe”. It is mainly associated with Japanese motorcycle gangs where the pilot can be seen wearing jumpsuits and kamikaze headbands and motorcycles are customized.

Now, Bosozoku style has extended its influence to cars. From big fender flares to crazy-looking exhausts and bright colored bodies, Bosozoku styling has definitely redefined car tuning. It’s far more interesting than our western car tuning and body detailing as it adds kick to kickass luxury vehicles and sports cars.

Recently, YouTuber effspot gave us a tour through one of Tokyo’s underground garages and home of the craziest Bosozoku styled Lamborghinis. If you think you’ve seen enough of Lamborghini’s eccentric designs, we bet that a Bosozoku styled one will still knock your socks off.

There are a lot of types of cars inside the said garage but the ones that really catch the attention are the Lamborghinis sitting pretty. There’s a Forgiato Lamborghini Aventador in black matte paired with sparkly bronze rims. There’s also one intricately designed with flames spiced up with box type high pitched exhausts; it looked darn hot even on standby.

You may think animal prints are so yesterday but what if we give you a Cheetah printed Lamborghini Murcielago shining shimmering and covered in spikes? It’s not a common sight on the road and with double exhausts; this cheetah will definitely roar its way out in the open.

There’s also a sky blue Murcielago accessorized with insane wings and quad exhausts. And if you’re up for some intergalactic look, there’s also a hologram Lambo complete with some sparkle on its side mirrors.

There are more crazy-tuned cars but these Lamborghinis really have what it takes to make bystanders make a double take. Who would’ve thought that Lambos can be designed to be this outlandish? Thanks to the genius Japanese tuners and designers, tuning a car has been brought to a whole new level.
