2010 Tokyo Auto Salon Pictures, featuring the RS 46

Here are a few pictures I took from the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon. I saw pretty much the whole show and it was well done and definitely worth attending, just to see the differences between shows in North America or Europe. It’s especially funny how there is no subtlety at all when it comes to photographing the car girls. Apparently they are just as much of an attraction as the cars themselves.

The show was a bit smaller this year, and I was surprised not to see Hartge or Schnitzer, especially since you see loads of complete cars from all major tuners around Tokyo. For Mercedes, Carlsson was there with a nice display, but I don’t believe Brabus was, and again you see quite a few of their cars on the road.

More notable was the lack of Japanese BMW tuners. It’s only a local show for them, but still there was no Amuse Ericsson at all. It was the same with the other Japanese brands people talk about on these boards so much, there were just a couple of parts here and there on various cars. There was fairly big WALD display though.

Tokyo Auto Salon pictures:

Here are some pictures of the Racing Dynamics RS 46 in the Pirelli booth. Nice to see the Racing Dynamics logos instead of RDSport since the show was outside of North America:



The RS 46 is behind all of these people:








The Pirelli dancers were quite a hit:


Federico Pavoncelli from Racing Dynamics, with the TSM Group girls (TSM is the RD importer for Japan, amongst other brands):


The RS 46 on the cover of es4 Magazine:


An article from Complete BMW Magazine:


Radical:


2003 Bentley Le Mans car:


That Toyota minivan with the E92 front end:


HMMWV:


From what I could gather, this single seat vehicle comes with its own wind-powered generator:


Some Japanese car:


The ‘High Society Saloon Gallery’ sign made me laugh:


I don’t even know what this started life as, but there were water towers in the back and it was crazy:


Again, something crazy:


Murcielago quad:


These guys do really nice interior work; unfortunately they chose to use a new Prius:





Cars really take second place to girls at the show:


Some other BMW-relevant pictures from Tokyo:

Alpina B12 5.0:


BMW parking aide, even though there are clearly parking sensors as well):



My friend’s Individual M6 Cabriolet, which was quite a nice ride to have around Tokyo, and an E46 M3 CSL:
