Ginza Adventure: Standing Out In A Sea Of Luxury

Ginza Adventure: Standing Out In A Sea Of Luxury

This time on ‘Around Tokyo’ we are in the ‘rich and sophisticated’ area of Ginza, Tokyo. Ginza is another one of those place that if you have deep pockets and love making it rain in high end boutiques, then this is the place for you. With so many high end boutiques and restaurants around the area, it’s no surprise that you can walk around and see all types of exotics and luxury cars: Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, Maserati’s, Rolls Royces and Bentleys just to name a few of the ‘common’ cars.
So you can understand why I was so shocked when I found this two tone, matte orange, MK IV Supra parked outside Cartier.
You would think that being in Japan, finding a Supra would not be that big of a deal. However, on the contrary, the opposite is true. Supra’s , especially the MK IV, just aren’t that popular.
The owner of this one however, decided to take this Supra and give it the ‘Fast and Furious’ touches with a full Veilside body kit conversion on WORK wheels.
Just around the block, I happened to stumble upon another car that you really wouldn’t expect to find in Ginza: This Mitsubishi Evo IX.
I will admit, this one does do a much better job of ‘blending’ into the high life of Ginza than the Supra, however this car just screams speed versus luxury like all the other cars in the area.
That is due to the fact that it would seem that the masterminds of Garage G-Force had gotten their hands on this Evo IX.
If you’re into Evo’s, then you probably know all about G- Force and the kind of reputation that G-Force has in the aftermarket world when it pertains to Evos.
Sometimes, we just can’t decide on which wheels to get, especially when choosing between Volk TE 37’s or Advan RZ-DF’s. So, the solution is simple: rock both at the same time! (joking)
I wasn’t too sure at first about the body kit choice, but the more I looked at it, the front and rear both help compliment each other. Helping to complete the overall look, the front carbon fiber lip and large rear spoiler.
Honestly, I really love what the owner did with this Evo and gives me an urge to buy one here in Japan.
Among the sea of black, high end luxury cars, I found two very different looking, but in a way, similar cars parked outside boutique shops. They can almost be viewed as a prime example of car culture in Japan. It doesn’t matter where you are, even in a town that is known for high class, you can still find modified cars standing out.
