Default Post Japanese car pics thread

Hey guys,
I thought I'd start a thread for all the Jap Car lovers out there.

Please post any Japanese car here. Doesn't need to be flashy or anything. Also post any cars which you like and are not necessarily your own.

I'll be posting mine as soon as I have finished it

Please ONLY JAPANESE

Mercs are the only crap german cars at the moment becasue they tried to save money by using cheaper materials, but now they say they use high quality materials again.

hahahaha!
Mercedes is horrible as far as reliability goes!
Go and check the worlds MOST reliable manufacturers, and get back to me on where the Euro's stand.
And to give you a hint, a particular European manufacturer has factory faults on 98 of each 100 cars made.

Don't get me wrong, Mercedes AMG, BMW M etc make SPECTACULAR cars, but Japan rivals the best of them, all without breaking, and all at a fraction of the price
Thing GT-R, NSX, Supra, Evolutions etc
Honda Type R's are faster on a slalom than Lambo's
In the 90's the most engineered car engine was a B18C7
The most electronically advanced gearbox in the world is found in an Evo
And toughest 6 cylinder engine is in a Supra
etc etc
I am not saying Euro cars aren't good, but you can't come here and make a stupid statement like "Jap cars suck *****"

Anyway... back to pics...

Is that a Celsior/LS400 is it?
Also, Lexus is Toyota so it is Japanese
An interesting fact, LEXUS = Luxury EXports to the US

Well the Brand Lexus goes with style and reliability
This already excludes any possible chance it's American
