Few countries in the world celebrate cars as well as Japan does. Supercars, JDM legends, old-school icons—if it packs an engine and runs on four wheels, it’s guaranteed to have a following there.
Ironically enough, it’s when the skies turn dark that car culture really begins to shine in the Land of the Rising Sun. Wide-open streets, fast cars, and neon lights make for an awe-inspiring spectacle. And if you need proof, look no further than the photos below.
These were taken during Lamborghini Day 2018 last week, in Yokohama, Japan. More than 200 Lamborghinis convened at the Yokohama Super Factory film studio for the epic meet—everything from Aventadors and Gallardos to the Urus SUV and the classic Miura turned up for the celebration.
The Lambos proceeded to strut their stuff around Minato Mirai, Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse, and Yamashita Park, filling up the cold night air with the roar of their naturally aspirated engines.
“Japan is a very important market for us,” said Stefano Domenicali, the Italian carmaker’s CEO. “I would like to reinforce our gratitude to the long-time patronage of our Japanese customers who have built such strong bonds with the marque.”
Again, no one does car culture like the Japanese. Enjoy the photos.
