The 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon Is Widebody Paradise


If H2Oi is a look into what stance culture is today, then the Tokyo Auto Salon is a glimpse into the future. Every year, the SEMA of the East is held in Chiba's Makuhari Messe, where participating performance and dress-up venders show off their projects and their products to the public. And just like it has been for the past couple years, the riveted widebody movement is still going strong.

Toyo Tires shared a new YouTube video on Friday featuring the heavy hitters of the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon. For the purists out there, you better shield your eyes. What started with a Rocket Bunny wide body kit for the Nissan S13 and Scion FR-S many years ago has steadily spread to other vehicles – it looks like modern Porsches are the next to jump on this bandwagon:

But it doesn't end there – TRA Kyoto's Pandem Aero line offers wide body options for classic German icons like the BMW E30 and MK2 Golf. And finally, Pandem has created a wide body kit for the legendary Nissan R32 GT-R as well. Honestly, I'm surprised it's taken this long for an R32 Skyline body kit considering the number of years this trend has been around. 

Other cars featured in Toyo Tires' video include a Pandem Aero wide body Toyota 86, Hurtling wide body DC2 Integra Type R, Aimgain GT 2017 Acura NSX, Aimgain VIP GT Lexus LS460, Aimgain wide body 2017 Nissan GT-R PREMIUM, a BMW i8 on AirRex air suspension, Super-Made wide body S15 Nissan Silvia, 326 Power wide body Infiniti G37 coupe, BN Sports wide body FD Mazda RX-7, and more. 

There is literally no shortage of fiberglass aero for almost every make and model on the planet. One could only wonder what car will get the wide body treatment next before car modifying trends inevitably moves on to something different.
