With the Detroit Auto Show finally winding down, we can turn our attention to the east (or west, depending on your continental perspective) to take in the motoring madness and engineering wizardry coming out of the 2009 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Each year, Japan's top tuners descend on the Makuhari Messe to show their wares to the public and press, and with over a year to develop, modify and produce components for the Mitsubishi Evolution X, Subaru Impreza WRX STI and the new darling of the aftermarket scene – the Nissan GT-R – this year's show had the potential to trump anything we've seen out of Tokyo in the last decade. By many accounts, it did, and with the help of Autoblog Chinese and some of our favorite JDM-obsessed sites, we'll be bringing you the best TAS has to offer.

Since we'll be focusing almost exclusively on the products that make you go faster and stick harder, we'll get the weird out of the way right now. Behold the NATS GT-K. Captured by our friends at NATS' 911-inspired Cappuccino, at which point we grabbed the nearest trash can and heaved away. Ambition: 1. Execution: 0. More to follow. Stay tuned...

      I dunno it's not that bad, kind of better looking than some kit cars.

      Nats is the automotive college for Autobody if you guys are wondering. I dont ever think that this kit will be sold to the public. It was just a concept to show their craftmanship and their imagination.

      Looking at that car reminds me of the time I tried chewing on tin foil....

      Are these cars meant for the street or are they like go-carts? Kinda ugly but it would be fun to mess around with...in a Shriners kind of way.

      They should open up in Doha, Qatar. One of the world's strongest currencies in the world (pegged to the dollar), the richest country in the world, one of the best GP courses which is now being expanded for the F1, exclusive destination with projects like 'The Pearl', Entertainment city, Energy city, Education City etc... (see Qatar mega projects on youtube). Also a stone throw from Dubai.
