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.

Cars in Japan (Japanese Cars)
I took some videos of various Japanese cars in Tokyo, Japan.
Not too many tuner cars because they don't drive around mid-city where I
walked around most of the time.
I appologize its so shaky. Everything was handheld.
I did not add music so you may listen to your own music while watching.
