The good, bad and plain crazy cars from the 39th Tokyo show
26 October 2007

Tokyo motor show 2005 had much in common with this week's Japanese motor show.The Suzuki Life Creator, Toyota i-Swing and Daihatsu UFE-III upheld the Tokyo motor show's reputation for bizarre creations, demonstrating a cabin that brings passengers closer together, a personal mobility device to express individuality and a three-wheeled car with only one door.But there was also plenty of significant new metal revealed, much of which is just reaching the market now. Mazda's CX-7 made its first appearance, the Mitsubishi Evo X concept was revealed, as was the Nissan GT-R prototype. Lexus also made an appearance with the LS concept, and Subaru showed us the first glimpse of where the new Impreza design was going.

Our Verdict

Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is not a cheap car, but it’s better value for money than cars that are seemingly as fast
