You might have heard of Japan’s Lamborghini ‘gangs’ before, but just in case you haven’t, we’ll fill you in. They might sound like something out of a movie, but there are Yakuza members who cruse Tokyo’s streets at night in Lamborghinis decked out in neon lights, bright paints jobs and outrageous body kits, going against the common yet suggested act of not drawing attention to yourself as a criminal.
It’s not clear if all those who drive a bright custom Lamborghini in Tokyo are gang members, but we’ll have to assume not. In the video below, we see one these neon-light enthusiasts turned car aficionados at what appears to be a car meet, and he happily obliges when the crowd asks him to give his decked out Aventador’s 6.4-liter V12 a few revs.
This style may not be for you, but it’s definitely cool to see a type of car culture that probably wouldn’t ever formulate here in North America. It’s the type of thing that could only happen in Japan, and it’s reasons like this why the country’s car culture is revered all over the world.
