Meet the maddest Lambo tuner...
...in the world. This is Morohoshi-san, and he lights up Tokyo's underworld with his pink Diablo

There are five other people like him that want cars I've designed. I have shops I can go to that are brave enough to cut into supercars - this is hard to find. People need a Morohoshi senpai." Egawa says: "He supervises, and I can ask him for advice. He's like a big brother."
Big in Japan, but rest-of-world orders are non-existent. Not that a gaijin - a Westerner - could find him. "I keep a very low profile in business. Sometimes you need to be hard to find. Not because I'm Yakuza - I'm not. But then no real Yakuza would ever tell you if they were..."
Though this anonymity threatens to change. At the next Tokyo Auto Salon - Japan's annual modified car show - Morohoshi will be exhibiting. Not just his armada of modified Lambos, but a Murciélago concept. Buried somewhere under a kudzu of ornamentation, it's ostensibly a Sesto Elemento-flavoured bodykit, with added anarchy. We're promised it can be built.
