Japan's Custom Lamborghini Legend

Am 2 Mär 2021 veröffentlicht
Shinichi Morohoshi is Tokyo's self-made Lamborghini king, a man who built an empire on the back of repeated tragedies. His heavily customized supercars capture the over-the-top style of Kabukichō, winning him fans and detractors worldwide.
But a prison sentence, a horrible accident, and bankruptcy nearly cost him everything. VICE visits Morohoshi’s Fighting Star garage to see how he rose to fame by consistently going against the grain.

Maybe, ugly for now but what about in the future? yeah you got it, they already there.


  • I've seen people calling these kinds of cars ' when ricers win lottery' but in my opinion it's his freaking car he decides how his car looks. It's for his enjoyment not others.

  • When a factory Lamborghini isn’t crazy enough, now that’s crazy.

  • anyone know the name of that jungle song that starts at 3:33?

  • So he rebuilt the car an made it as bright an flashy as he could so no matter what, you can see that car from a mile away. Nobody gonna just change lanes an not see him lighting up the night.

  • Saw him on DDE with Steve, Damon and Dave. Glad he recovered from that accident before DDE’s Trip to Japan. Great guy...Great convoy of cars he got...🏎🏎🏎💨💨💨

  • Beautiful😍

  • This guy is so humble that I dig what he does.
