As much as the Japanese love modifying and tuning their cars, enthusiasts in the land of the rising sun love to get their hands on a fine German luxury car. While names like Brabus might be known best in Germany, Benz-tuner Carlsson has a huge following in Japan, thanks in part to its smart marketing efforts – like always displaying at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Always a show staple, Carlsson was dressed to impress at TAS 2010 with an impressive corral of vehicles ranging from a modified Mercedes McLaren SLR 722, to a pair of modified and personalized Smart Cars.

In addition to these, the German tuner also has on display one of its newest packages for the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, including a complete aero kit, exhaust system, lowering kit for the suspension and interior accessories.
