"It's funny to me that I'm distanced. Whenever I'm overseas, other Lamborghini owners love me. They can't believe what I've done. Even the public were fascinated. In Italy, there were crowds cheering at my car and gesturing me to play the horn, even in traditional Mafia towns. I can understand why some people, and why some Lamborghini enthusiasts find my modifications..." He pauses, searching for the mot juste. "Unnecessary. But I don't care.
"I'm not what you'd associate with anything Lamborghini - the company, other owners - and we've always had a troubled relationship. Traditional enthusiasts wanted to keep away from me in the early days, so I had to start my own group - Akuma Shukai. It means ‘Diablo Meeting' in Japanese, and we welcomed everyone. No matter where they were from or how they modified their car. It ended five years ago because of rivalry and jealousy - cars like this appeal to a certain kind of person, and they don't tend to mix well with each other. But each car from our group stood out, they were unique. We started something. We started bōsō Lamborghinis."
