A usually derogatory term used to desrcibe any of a number of imported cars (hondas, mitsubishes, etc.) that are not specifically designed for racing. Many have only physical modifications, including neon lights, massive spoilers, and decals for equipment they don't have. Others, however, are extensively modified for racing and often sport NOS, Tubos/superchargers, well tuned exhaust systems, and computer enhanced fuel/air mix ratios. This variety is MUCH rarer.
I pulled up next to this guy driving a rice rocket yesterday. His fake stickers didn't help him when i smoked his ass.

Asian rich kid toy. An import sedan or 'sport' sedan souped up to look fast, sound fast, and go exactly the same speed as any other sedan. Usually customised with unecessary spoilers, coffee can exhaust for that mosquito on steriods sound, and racing stripes to show off your 'team'

a foreign asian car (e.g. honda civic or any toyota) that is tricked out or souped up for show, often with silver rims and an unnecessary spoiler often driven by an Asian but not necessarily.
Man, he got a hella cool rice rocket. I saw him driving it down the street yesterday.

rice rocket is an inexpensive car, such as Honda Civic. For some reason domestic owners hate them so much that they forget about Neons and Cavailers with big fart cannons and boeng wings, I guess they are an american cheap rice.
the funny thing, a rice rocket can be pretty fast if hooked up right, sometimes its funny to see how Honda Civic beats domestic junk :D

Previously used to describe japanese and asian import motorcycles, this term is now mainly used to describe asian import cars that have been modified to either increase performance or greatly alter the visual style. This includes turbos, engine swaps, rediculously large spoilers, etc. Honda Civics and Acura Integras are the poster children for the term 'Rice Rocket.'
Once I put this double-decker spoiler on my old beat up Honda Civic, I'll be able to waste any new car! And these SiR stickers will add lots of horsepower to my rice rocket too! This neon glowkit will surely get my car highlighted on RiceRocket.com! Maybe I should put spinners on the whells and lower it while I'm at it...

Car that is not made to go fast. But is dressed up in what the owner believes to be "Pimp" looking stickers, body kit, high mount or "GT" wing, huuuge exhaust and 20" rims.Good for a bit of a laugh as u leave em for dead in ur TT supra, GTR or even 180sx
sif u could even call a supra a rice car u eunuch above me. Stock the N/A MK IV will run a 14. Yeah thats real rice. Just another closed minded domestic car lover genrally refered to in Australia as a "TREV"
