An import car, usually japanese, that is modified and suped up. It is cosmetically modified with wings/spoilers, body kits, lowering suspension, etc. And suped up with intake, exhaust, cams, clutch, turbo, etc. A Rice Rocket HAS horsepower and torque to back up cosmetic modifications. Rice referring amount of rice consumed in the Asian diet and Rocket referring to how fast the cars go. Rice Rocket is usually mistaken or confused with the term Ricer
which means roughly: an import japanese car that is all show and no go.
Damn! That bad ass Rice Rocket sure beat the crap out of my crappy ass Cobra that I did nothing with to make fast!
