Or at least: that is what Lightning McQueen from the movies Cars would have looked like if he would ever end up at a kaido racer meetup!

Yesterday I already posted a bit about the Gloria Royce by guroria430 from Team Madonna and I remembered bookmarking these videos of the car a while ago.

This one is somewhere between kaido racer and bippu. I’d rather refer to it as the style Koenig created in the 80s.
The wild mix of awesome hood fins, side fins, side air intake, large wings and deep dished SSR Formula Mesh wheels just makes it an exceptional appearance at the Auto Salon!
Edit: it is a Crown JZS150
