Heaven for Gearheads: Underground Car Park Japan

Car Nuts Delight: Italian Supercars to JDMs

The Japanese motor vehicle scene has some of the most amazing vehicles on the planet, which can be witnessed from the ordinary parking spaces in Japan that often seem to be unbelievable luxury car expositions.

In the video below, we get to observe what, initially seeming like a multitude of forsaken vintage vehicles, however, with closer inspection it is simply just a collection being held in this car park which was one of the more reasonably priced spots in Tokyo. From 15:30 onward, the demonstrator takes us through the area, demonstrating some incredible metal.

Over the years, there has been an array of motor vehicles housed within the structure – from a timeless Jaguar E-Type to a more modern Alfa Romeo 4C and also a hazy Rolls-Royce Phantom. However, even these rides seem mundane compared to what else can be found in the garage.

We found a STASH of abandoned cars in a Tokyo underground…

Japan has consistently been given exclusive special editions that the rest of the world was unaware of, and we can revel in seeing several of these variants close-by. An immaculate silver Subaru Impreza WRX STI S201 – numbered among only 300 ever manufactured – is parked next to a vibrant yellow WRX STI S202. Further away, another yellow special edition 2006 Impreza WRX STI spec C Type RA-R can be found with just 300 units produced. But undoubtedly, the most awe-inspiring model may be an Impreza WRX STi adorned with full 555 rally racing colors, echoing the cars steered by Colin McRae.

Quite a selection of various Subaru’s were luckily discovered, more than the rally type. As the presenter encountered time-honored models he had never seen before, the vintage Subaru 360 was spotted, an iconic automobile and the company’s earliest model. An extravagant Forester STI was located there too, indeed an exclusive import edition that America never received.

A VeilSide Nissan GT-R transports us to the contemporary period along with an abundance of Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghinis.

A large assortment of cars can be observed in Japan, differing from the ones known and owned in other countries. Some of these vehicles are contemporary, others classic; many are even equipped with battery packs and trickle chargers to make sure they don’t run out of power, particularly during those times when they remain unused for a lengthy period in the nearby garage near a transit hub where people can easily get access to them. All in all, this gives us an insight into the amazingly varied automobile sector in Japan.

We’re not implying all garages in Japan are the same, but it’s quite probable to observe something akin to this within Tokyo rather than in any American city.
