This Is Perhaps the Nerdiest Car in Japan

Perhaps! There are lots of nerdy cars, but damn, this is pretty nerdy. This Toyota Auris has been customized in the image of Gundam character Char Aznable. The concept car was shown at a recent hobby event outside Tokyo.

When asked if this concept car would ever see production, Toyoto told The Mainichi, "If there was the demand, it's something we'd like to look into."

Japan's auto makers are on on an otaku (geek) streak of late. Earlier this month, Nissan unveiled a Dragon Quest minivan.
