You’ve heard of trypophobia, that skin-crawling fear of clusters of holes, right? Well, after coming across Sense Brand’s aftermarket escapades at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS), we’re coining a new term somewhat similar to it: exhaustophobia—the irrational fear of aftermarket tailpipes grouped together.
We kid, we kid. The TAS is a venue for the absurd, for customizers and specialists who want to push a car to the absolute limit, whether performance-wise or aesthetically—and if that means packing a sh*t ton of exhaust into a vehicle’s tail end, so be it. In fact, we applaud it. Frankly, it takes a genius to come up with this stuff.
It was a few days ago when we first spotted Sense Brand’s TAS tailpipe work on a shiny Toyota online. We quickly got to snooping—essentially scouring social media for an official Sense Brand account—and here’s what we found. Apparently, Sense Brand has been at this for quite some time.
To be fair, most of the company’s exhaust work is kept relatively classy—like this Suzuki Jimny below, for example. A financially sound decision, because we can’t imagine a majority of customers throwing money at a shop that’s looking to turn each and every job into a low-riding stunt car for the next Mad Max flick.
All that said, we ask: What’s the most number of exhausts you’d be willing to pack into your car’s rear?
