Tokyo Auto Salon Wows with Debuts and Mods from Many Major Makes

By Mark Vaughn of Autoweek | Slide 1 of 15: The Tokyo Auto Salon has been packing the Makaharu Messe out past Tokyo Disneyland for almost all of its 37 years, with loads of custom cars and thousands of aftermarket parts manufacturers. But it really classed up the ol’ Messe this year, at least compared to only a few years ago when it more closely resembled a Japanese version of the Essen Motor Show in Germany, or the SEMA show in Las Vegas. While those shows have been accused by some of lacking what you call“good taste,” this year’s Auto Salon featured some really cool cars and major announcements from most Japanese carmakers.
