    Japan. Enough said.


    Re: OMG only in Japan

    Can someone explain to me the front mounted intercooler on the outside on the front bumper, and worse still the pipes hanging there like a water hose?


    Re: OMG only in Japan

    This leaves me speechless!

    Re: OMG only in Japan

    there is more

    Mercedes E-Class given a hideous makeover 

    There’s ugly and then there’s hideous. It takes a complete eyesore for us to label something ugly but this one went further than anyone of us ever expected. This car is a previous generation Mercedes Benz E-Class W124 but from the looks of things, it hardly resembles anything the guys from Daimler would ever build. It’s been completely modified – if you can even call something like as ‘modified’ – to look like, well, this. Yeah, very often are we at a loss for words but this one managed to accomplish that.

    Try as we may to justify this creation, we just can’t. The car’s front has been completely altered with grills that make it look like a medieval helmet. The designers - which apparently goes by the name ’Arturos’ - also included a number of slit-looking air vents on both sides of the car, which, quite frankly, reminds us of those water-faring creatures known as fishes. The designer even managed to outdo itself by replacing the E-Class W124’s head and tail lights with CLK-style headlights and SLK tail lamps.

    We’d describe the car even further but we’re afraid that it still wouldn’t do it enough justice so we’ve decided to just let you see it for yourself

    Ok, I'm not going to pretend I understand this -- because I don't. But I REALLY need to understand

    (1) The purpose behind mounting the turbo intercooler OUTSIDE the fender and running the plumbing with exposed hoses back through the front facia.

    (2) The purpose of 8 ft tall  chopper exhaust pipes

     

    Oh, and this car I'm delivers Formula 1 levels of downforce. LOL!

    Those aren't intercoolers. Those are oil coolers. I also don't understand the point of mounting the oil cooler on the exterior. It can't be that hot in Japan that the engine needs additional cooling Smiley

    The car on the right hand side must have been overseen, never seen an exhaust/wing modification like that! Smiley

    Mounting the oil cooler at the front fascia is not that uncommon on vintage cars, but exposing the pipes certainly is.

    All in all, I find this rather interesting but keep wondering why they solely use cars of a very distinct era.

    Fabspeed tips??

    Those shots are Sooooo weird. What the heck w/ all of them putting the oil coolers out like that. It would be weird to see it on one car but so many? What the heck happened that it would start a trend?? And the tail pipes?? Never seen such a a collection of similarly weird  cars.

    It's all about psychology.

    Japan is a group of very crowded islands where adults are expected to conform to standard behavior patterns both in their working lives and their private lives. People tend to be pretty intense and take everything seriously. This tendency is even forced onto school kids.

    So what happens when Japanes kids get beyond puberty and feel the rebellious urges that teenagers everywhere are inclined to? They use the brief period of freedom they enjoy before they get into the rut of becoming "salarymen" and "office ladies" (those good old standard Japanese expressions Smiley) and rebel with the same intensity as their parents apply to conforming to their society's norms.

    I doubt that it is still fashionable now, but I remember walking around Tokyo on a Sunday afternoon in the mid-1990s and seeing a couple of hundred kids gathered in the street on imported 1960s style Italian Lambretta and Vespa scooters, all dressed up in British-style (horse) riding clothes (tweed jackets, baggy riders' pants, peaked riders' hard-hats). Many of them had their hair dyed blonde or auburn or worse. I guess they must have read about or seen a movie about the British "Mods" of the 1960s, and wanted to emulate them. Smiley

    The cars you see above are all part of the same thing. In order to conform to the tendency to rebel to society's norms with the intensity expected of you, you really do have to overdo things. Smiley

    Exactly !!! And I support their action completly !! These cars have actually an mazing sense of creativity and '' caricature''. They are very well thaught in their own artistic line and do make sence  . But.... yes, looking at them is Smiley and that's also the purpose of it !

    Japan is where the trends in youth subculture are made nowadays.  Think Pokemon, Visual Kei, Coz-Playing, ... It has been a long time since a new youth subculture has been invented somewhere else.

    And if it's playing with cars? How can we possibly disagree with that (as long as they don't kill themselves)? Smiley
