Since the late 1980s Japanese motor manufacturers have been producing a line of high-performance cars that have found a ready market around the world. The combination of their abilities on the road, their traditional Japanese build quality and their reasonable pricing has captivated enthusiasts. Yet there has never been a single source in which to read and find out about these giants of the motoring world. Now, this exciting book profiles all Japan's greatest performance models, detailing their history, technical make-up and potential for speed. Each car is also rated for its desirability, tuneability and availability. The author covers a huge spread of machinery never grouped together before, from four-wheel drive turbo legends like the Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Nissan Skyline GT-R, through sports car icons such as the Mazda RX-7, Nissan 350Z and Toyota Supra, right up to supercars like the Honda NSX.
