The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (Chairman: Akio Toyoda) finalized the vehicle lineup for the ODAIBA Motor Parade, which will open the “Odaiba Motor Festival” to be held on November 16 (Sat) and 17 (Sun), the week before the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013, as well as during the Show itself, for visitors to come in contact with cars and motorcycles and directly sense their appeal.

This will be an amazing parade with vehicles coming straight out of the circuit or museum to drive along the streets of Odaiba for one special day. The diverse lineup will include Japan’s first production models and classic cars that adorned the Showa era alongside racing cars and rally cars that are not normally seen on public roads. Keiji Furuya, Chairman of the National Public Safety Commission, will participate in the parade as guest. Also, racing car driver Takuma Sato and Kondo Racing Team Director Kondo will drive parade vehicles. The history of cars and motorcycles will gather here, bringing excitement to the Odaiba Motor Festival kickoff.
