The term ''itasha'' refers to any car which has been modified with vinyls, stickers, or other decorations relating to anime or games - most often featuring female characters and a heavily {{Moe}} aesthetic. Literally translated as "Painful car", this is a pun based on the fact that "ita" can also stand for "Italian", thus evoking an image of a Lamborghini or a Ferrari. The pain in question is referring to either the car being a self-acknowledging eyesore, or the painful embarassment which the owner is expected to undergo when explaining to his (it's almost always "his") family and friends exactly what the hell he was thinking.

* Of course, some model kits are available in Japan for Itasha...
** Beginning with 1/24 scale cars,
** Continuing with Hasegawa's 1/48 and 1/72 ranges of Idol Master modern fighters, similar to (maybe related to) the ''Ace Combat'' example above...
** Add Bandai's 1/100 Macross Frontier valkyrie series done up in such a style, in both a simpler fighter-mode kit and a transformable version...
** And there was once even a modern aircraft carrier in 1/700 scale available.

* The Super GT cars mentioned above. Despite the looks, the main itasha car (GSR & Team Ukyo's [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Hatsune Miku-themed]] car) that raced in Super GT is actually a two-time and is the ''defending'' champion in the [=GT300=] class.
