Tokyo Auto Salon 2011 Mega Photo Gallery [Part 1]

The Tokyo Auto Salon is Japan's equivalent of North America's largest tuning event, the SEMA show, and like its Las Vegas counterpart, the Tokyo event attract myriads of independent tuners as well as major automakers. In fact there are so many new production and conceptual proposals that it's virtually impossible to report on each and every custom creation separately - at least not in a timely manner.

Now, what we can do is offer you a visual tour of this year's event through our two-part gallery, each comprising of some 240 high-resolution photos, which will be followed later on tonight by a separate post with the beautiful and for some of us, exotic, booth professionals of the show. For now, feast your eyes on the first part of our custom car gallery after the break.
