GT-R vs Supra (& Extra) In The TAS Automotive Park


It’s time to announce the Tokyo Auto Salon parking zone’s hottest vehicles of 2022

In actuality, it’s minivans or kei vehicles in fact, however for the sake of this story, let’s dive again into our fantasy land the place efficiency all the time trumps practicality.

On this case, with out a shadow of doubt essentially the most considerable excessive efficiency autos I noticed over the two days I walked the aisles of the Makuhari Messe automotive park was the Supra and the GT-R. I’ll allow you to determine which is king and which is queen.

Observe; I wasn’t positive what my story angle could be when capturing this and my first TAS 2022 automotive park put up, so after the fifth Supra recognizing I ended photographing them. However I counted over 10 MK4 and simply as many A90 as I did my rounds.

The GT-R, each in Skyline and R35 type, was one other automotive I acquired uninterested in snapping (not a nasty drawback to have, I do know). Given their values, I started questioning why there have been so a lot of them knocking round a carpark with household vehicles and grocery-getters…

Other than the apparent – that is the TAS carpark, and other people simply love driving these items – I believe it’s fairly secure to say that the danger of harm to your journey is way decrease in Japan than elsewhere. For a rustic the place most individuals have a backyard the dimensions of a single mattress, parking areas are typically fairly huge, and often have double vast strains between every area, which means that door dings are considerably uncommon. And the Japanese are fairly cautious drivers too; I’ve solely seen two accidents over the previous two years of day by day driving.

After all, it wasn’t all GT-Rs and Supras, there have been loads of different Japanese efficiency icons parked up too.

One thing else I observed was that almost all of vehicles have been in actually nice situation, and largely simply flippantly tuned.

There additionally wasn’t an abundance of loopy vast physique kits, vinyl wraps, outrageous wings or wheel spacers as thick as a can of spam, as we’ve seen previously. I’m undecided if which means that folks’s tastes are altering, or the homeowners of these kinds of vehicles merely stayed away or introduced their day by day drivers alongside as an alternative this 12 months.

Regardless, I hope you’ve loved the good outside at Tokyo Auto Salon 2022. Keep tuned for my subsequent put up – Japan’s greatest tuning present by means of the eyes of a TAS first-timer.
