Had the pleasure to drive a Lexus RX450h for 650km during the weekend and I have just published my review on Nihoncar.
Our test and awesome pictures available on NihonCar :)
A disappearing sight in French countryside : the Citroën Méhari. The Méhari had a body made of ABS plastic with a soft-top and employed the 602 cc flat twin gasoline engine shared with the 2CV6, producing such a distinct melody. This one is a rare 4×4 Mehari (only 1,300 were produced). When it was launched, ...
The new Toyota Crown has arrived and I had a chance to review it for NihonCar :)
And here there are : my pictures of the 2013 edition of the Tokyo Auto Salon ! Enjoy :) Can you guess who was my favourite booth babe ? Shouldn’t be too difficult :D
Impressive demonstration of Drift at the Tokyo Auto Salon. The booth babes are coming… just have too many pictures to sort and select ;-)
Even driving is more fun at Tokyo Disneyland.

Practising my motion blur skills during lunch break :)
Toyota Century, the car favoured by Politicians and Yakuzas alike. This vintage car (in production since 1967) is powered by a 5.0L V12 that gives only 280ps ! More on the Toyota website here.
After experiencing very bad service from Europcar two years in a row (including a free downgrade with the comment “take it or leave it, you have already paid anyway”), I gave Avis a try and surprise : for the first time ever, the advertised car of the category was the car they gave me, a ...
Ok, space is a scarce resource in Tokyo but you don’t have to make it that messy !
On our way to Izu for the Golden Week : night, rain and traffic jams !
An interesting find in Tokyo MidTown’s parking : a Ferrari 400 ! The Ferrari 400 and Ferrari 412 are front-engined 2+2 coupé cars from Italian manufacturer Ferrari. They were available with 5-speed all synchromesh or an optional 3-speed automatic transmission unit from General Motors. Their design was derived from the almost identical looking 365 GT4 ...
A crowded highway is not a playground to practise evasive manoeuvres !
Rainy weekend in Tokyo so finished the upgrade of the TT-01 chassis of my Datsun 240 with 1) yeah racing conversion kit, 2) 7.2V 3600mAh Ni-MH battery and 3) RS-540 Sport Tuned motor. No brush less motor and LiPo battery as those would be waste on such a “cheap” chassis. With the iPhone on, ready ...
Another nice car from the Tokyo Motor Show 2011 ! According to BMW, the BMW i8 Concept is the next step in the evolution of the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept. The result: The most progressive and innovative sports car of its time. Its innovative plug-in hybrid concept combines the modified electric drive system from the ...
From the Tokyo Motor Show 2011 !

A rare find in the underground carpark of Tokyo Midtown : a BMW 2000ti, from the late 60s !
