How is this Rice?

I was visiting molestedcars.com and looking through their rice cars when i stumbled accross this picture.



My question to you is, how is this car rice? For a 3.0L twin turbo with racing stripes, I find it hard to agree that this car is all show :S and no go.

Re: How is this Rice?

It doesn't look too over the top does it. I didn't know the 3000GT came out with a VR4 option, although they were AWD I didn't think they had a badge like that on them, but I am no expert.

VR4 was the top spec 3000GT with 4 wheel drive, 4 wheel steering, and 4 wheel ABS & EBD.

Re: How is this Rice?

Answer: it's not rice (hehe, well, much). Rice is cheap Jap crap with stickers, spoilers, and similar crap plastered all over it in an attempt to make the car look more powerful than it really is.

Rice, basically, is the opposite of a sleeper

Re: How is this Rice?

Is it actually what the badge says? Or a mock up?

This car is always my dream car, but the road tax 3000cc is very expensive in my country Malaysia.
