The heaven of Japan's car magazine

Apart from numerous selection of JDM cars, Japan also is unique in terms of car magazine offerings. One that caught my attention is the Motor Fan. In a nutshell, for every new car launch (Japan's car), Motor Fan will produced a magazine spesific to that car only, outlining all the engineering and styling details and evolution, interviews with the engineering team as well as comparison test with the competitors. For this particular months, I managed to find the Subaru BRZ issue, as well as the Toyota Prius C. Despite my total incapability in reading Nihongo, the numbers are easy to understand. Another magazine I bought is the F1 magazine, as well as book on tuning the Honda CR-Z. Total damaged to the wallet : almost 4000 yen!
