Bōsōzoku (暴走族?, literally “violent running tribe”) is a Japanese youth subculture associated with customized cars, motorcycles or trucks. Bōsōzoku is popular since the 1990s.
Bōsōzoku are known to modify their car, motorcycles or truck in peculiar and often showy ways.
These cars are often modified with large exhaust pipes, bright paint, and large aero kits, he latter modelled on Group 5 “Special Production Cars” of the 1970s. Also popular are oil coolers or less commonly large turbo or supercharger intercoolers with highly polished tubing, usually mounted in a prominent position in the front bumper.
