Often driven by a ricer, these heavily modified japanese import cars are a little better than turbo-charging your mums kettle. Often seen with a rear aerodynamical device called a "wing", they are mistaken for a Shopping Trolley or toilet-with-handles.

Usually seen outside your local massive shopping center or cultural center, they make themselves seen by revving their engines while driving at 10kms/hr so as that they are noticed.

Australians typically hate rice burners and ricers. Rice burners are often mistaken for tuner cars, which look similar, but the person in charge usually knows what they are doing.

Usually, a rice burner's additions serve only to increase the weight, damage costs and yellow stickers (oz), for little or no effect.
OMG I just blew off that loud rice burner in my tuned XF Fairmont Ghia (oz car). Is it just me or did it sound like its exhaust had fallen off?

My 97kw 76 HJ Kingswood (oz car) owns your pos rice burner.

a Honda Civic.
a loud high-pitched, annoying japanese car that tipically has the biggest possible muffler or fart pipe that will fit on the car. They also tend to have a huge ridiculous wing on the rear of the car.
What's that noise, is it a lawn mower?" "Nah bro, it's another rice burner.

The outcome of putting a JC Whitney catalog in the hands of a Burger King fry cook who got his mom's civic when he turned 16. Just because it SOUNDS powerful, doesn't mean it is!
Wait, you mean that big, gay-looking wing, the body kit and 22" wheels add weight to the car and actually slow it down?? Next you're gonna tell me that 4 15" subs and 3 600 watt amps make the car heavier too!

1) One who burns rice. 2) Stovetop heat generator manufactured specifically for over-cooking rice. 3) Modified import economy cars. Modifications might include suspension, engine, exhaust or visual modifications. Roughly 2% of the cars taking part in this phenomenom are true performance machines. The remaining 98% are made up of strictly superficial modifications and are just sad attemps that do little more than show the need of the driver to stand out from, and above, their peers. Unfortunately their efforts generate the opposite effect.
1)Chad is a rice burner. 2)Chad bought a new G.E. rice burner at Sears. 3)Chad locked his keys in his rice burner when he went to the mall.

A Rice Burner is a car with a bunch of parts to make it appear
fast, but is actually running on the basic 4 cylinder engine.
Rice Burners,or Rice Rockets usually have these parts.

-Fake Fart Can Exhaust
-Body Kits thats are different color then the car itself
-Fake stickers/flames
-Sponsors such as NOS,but they don't have NOS
-A bright paint job, usually ugly
-Either Tinted or See through Lights
-Purple Window Tint (on windows)
-Loud Rap music coming from car
-Very high shopping cart Spoiler
-Fake vents/scoops
-Carbon Fiber hood
-Expensive Rims,Plastic Spinners,or missing hubcaps

And to complete it, a poor driver and a spilled
milkshake on the passenger seat.
Once I saw this rice burner, and it had purple window tint,
and only 1 spinner, and the rest of the wheels were spray
painted green and purple.

Any automobile of asian origen which has been carelessly modifyed by a person with an IQ equal to the capacity of the gas tank. Usually classifyed by a paint job that would have blind men running to gouge their eyes out, enough Nitrous Oxide to make Hiroshima duck and cover, and an exhast pipe that would appear to have enough diameter to launch a watermelon over the Effiel Tower.

Recommended location for such a phenomenon:

Under the tire of a vehicle that actually is more threatening and powerful than an electric razor
