Most of the pictures that are situated alongside this word.

A POORLY modified car that the driver tries to make seem cooler, and making a asshole of himself at the same time.

Not always some-one who modifies exported cars, theres nothing wrong with that...and who-ever says it is usually is gelous they drive around in shitty salons. Standing out is not a crime, but in cars like those in the pics...it is...
haha, Look at that f***ing ricer! What a shit car!

derived from "rice burner", which typically signified any japanese import vehicle.
has since been modified to signify any young male who takes said rice burner and modifies the exterior of the vehicle to include, but not be limited to: loud exhaust (slang: fart can), neon lights mounted under the car, strobe lights in the turn signal housings (but have been known to be mounted in other locations), body styling kits (which replace the original body pieces), large graphics, bumper stickers on the side of the car (typically of products that haven't been installed on the car), loud audio system which includes enough bass to shake bolts loose on the car (and make your eyeballs shake), a 3 or 4 foot universal wing mounted on the trunk lid of a front wheel drive car (used in racing for downforce on rear wheel drive cars).
look at that ricer in that nasty honduh.

poor attempt to make an import "fast", when indeed the upgrades done to the car dont really improve performance at all. mostly late 80's to mid 90's hondas, toyotas, etc. they consist of huge unessesary spoilers, huge fart can exhaust pipes that make their 4 cylinders sound even shittier, bodykits that havent been painted and are held on by bolts or whatever the ricer could hold it up with. lets not forget the most important ricer upgrade, the clear tailights and HID headlights.
