What would the possibility be of seeing a Lamborghini in Japan?

Sure, Mercedes, BMWs and other luxurious cars can be seen almost daily, but a Lamborghini? Sightings would be slim, I would think.

So, you could understand what a commotion 3 of them together made.

Sitting inside of Starbucks the other day, you could hear the revving of their engines (to get attention I assumed) as they made their way down the street. One guy even drove his Lamborghini with the door up in the air.

They apparently decided to stop into Starbucks but couldn't find enough parking for their 3 cars (ahem...actually the whole street is no parking!)

They then stopped all traffic in both directions and made illegal u-turns to park across the street from Starbucks.

One foreigner on a bicycle passing by almost fell off taking a double take.

No cops came to give them tickets nor tow them away. In fact, I've never seen a tow truck here in Osaka.

They ended up staying for over an hour, their cars untouched but very ogled.

haha the "conveniences" of japan. just pull your car off to the side & turn on the hazard lights. that's what my friend does in tokyo when driving the mercedes. he said because the police or anyone doesn't want to complain about a car that might be a yakuza's car! :)
