The Tokyo show is renown for its wild, even wacky concept car and bleeding-edge technology. This month's show looks to continue the tradition, with decidedly outlandish machines from Jeep and Toyota already grabbing attention. On the tech front, hybrid drivetrains and Internet technology will be prominent.
Performance enthusiasts worldwide will be looking close at concepts from Honda and Mazda that may portend of the future Acura NSX and Miata. And, of course, a few standout vehicles from the recent Frankfurt show will also be on display.
