Custom cars are quite popular (Xhibit, Pimp my Ride!) but as with many things, in Japan they take it to the extreme. How extreme are their custom cars? How does a Toyota Celsior UCF20 with gullwings, scissor doors and a split hood sound? Did I mention it has 24 monitors inside the car (yes that says 24) and took 12 years to build at a cost of 10 million yen (over $100,000)? Yeah, that’s pretty extreme.
And then there’s the $280,000 Batman van which took 13 years to finish. Oh and it cost the owner a divorce in the process. There’s also the rocket launcher van. This is some truly wild stuff, check it all out in the video below:
