Nowadays, the internet can easily deliver the kind of fantasies that required car aficionados to have an overly wild imagination in the past and we're here to bring you the freshest example of that.
We've seen our fair share of unusual renderings over the years and yet this is an area where "never say never" truly is a golden rule. After all, what could prepare you for a Volkswagen Golf that has been taken down the Bosozoku route?

For those of you who aren't following the JDM world, the Bosozoku subculture originated with motorcycle gangs that saw their members expressing their individuality by adding oddball-grade mods to their bikes. Nevertheless, this also includes other types of vehicles, and here we are, looking at one, albeit via the virtual world.

Coming from a young British artist named Khyzyl Saleem, the rendering above brings us a Golf Mk II that has gone through a complex transformation - if this car was real, we wouldn't be all that surprised to see those exausts are made of bamboo, for instance. And just imagine the tons of neons it packs beneath the surface.

Do any of the custom bits on this Vee-Dub make sense? Not really, but you could probably say that about another trend that started out in Japan and has now taken over the whole world.

We're referring to drifting here, which has gone from an outcast discipline to a tend that sees carmakers as grip-addicted as Porsche and McLaren jumping the sideways bandwagon.

Speaking of which, the pixel artist mentioned above might have sliding dreams for the Golf he offered us, or at least that's what we think of when reading the brief description he provided for the image: "A little Bosozoku fun. RWD, probably an engine transplate & a little rushed haha,'"
