JEM MotorSports Presents : Junction Produce Boutique Tour - VIP Aero Body Kit Manufacture
Japan based Junction Produce is the leading manufacture of extreme luxury styling aero body kits for Nissan / Infiniti & Toyota / Lexus.
Marck takes us into Junction Produce's "Boutique" retail shop where you will find all the most luxurious vehicle accessories and upgrades to achieve that "VIP" status.
VIP Style refers to the modification of Japanese luxury automobiles to make them more fashionable and more luxurious. VIP Style are typically large, expensive, rear-wheel drive sedans, though automotive enthusiasts use other cars like minivans and Kei cars. Once associated with the yakuza, VIP Style modifications now are a subset of automotive modification.
VIP Style modifications and history have often been linked to the yakuza. It is claimed that VIP Style came to be due to the risk of gangsters riding around in high-profile European sedans like the Mercedes S-Class or the BMW 7 Series. Such cars brought increased attention from police and rival gangs. By using JDM cars with modifications associated with the creation of limousines, gangsters could avoid detection by the police and rival gangs.
Both Osaka street racers and Kanto area Bosozoku (motorcycle and moped gangs in Japan) adopted styles in different ways. Osaka street racers, after suffering numerous police crackdowns on the Hanshin Expressway in the early 1990's, turned to sedans after police targeted sport compacts as a way to cruise while remaining incognito. Many design cues were taken from Mercedes-AMG cars. Kanto area bosozoku gangs took a somewhat different approach, by modifying sedans with cut coils and mufflers and were often bold and loud known as "Yankee Style". Their styling cues were actually taken from the Super Silhouette race cars of the 70's and 80's. They also drove recklessly, such as causing traffic jams and avoiding paying tolls. To mimic their yakuza counterparts, they used large black sedans.
Automotive enthusiasts adapted beyond luxury sedans, utilizing minivans and Kei cars. One advantage presented to enthusiasts is that such modifications can make a car luxurious without being expensive.

VIP Japanese Sedan Dress Up Car Collection ( PART 1 of 2 )
"VIP" (pronounced like whip or zip... not V.I.P) is the Japanese way of
dressing cars up... body kits, dropped suspension, HID fog lights, custom
headlights, wood and leather interiors, big rims and low profile
tyres...all that. Fabulous or Junction Produce are big names in the VIP
Although some people try to VIP little cars, generally speaking VIP cars
are big body sedans with larger engines, are luxurious and chunky looking.
I think personally companies like Brabus and Lorinser styled Merceds would
be considered "VIP" and are probably part of the influence behind the
genre. Any large sedan can be "VIPPED"... though the Japanese tend to go
for Japanese sedans or cars like Jaguar and Mercedes Benz.
The video is in Japanese however, it is back to back VIP cars, so you can
enjoy the view and forget the words. The people are talking about why they
decided to style their cars VIP, how they did it, which products and
styling comapnies they used etc... all kind of irrelevant unless you live
in Japan and want to do the same. The video shows some of the most
striking examples of Japanese VIP cars, so if you are new to the genre, Im
sure youre going to love the styling. VIP cars are incredible.
This DVD is from circa 2008/2009
