Yakuza! Analyzing the Japanese mafia from a four-wheeled perspective
Writer Peter Lyon explores the automotive likes and dislikes present in the dark underground that is the Yakuza - Japan's version of a particularly ruthless mob.
According to Lyon, Nipponese gangsters prefer to drive Mercedes-Benz S-Class limousines, especially in left-hand drive, but they will take Lexus LS' if in a pinch. The author not only observes the Yakuza's four-wheeled tendencies from afar, it actually interviewed a Yakuza boss (who shall remain nameless), he's had years to observe commuters parting like the proverbial Red Sea in order to let the mobster-mobiles continue onward.
