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.

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'
"Look at that kid's rice rocker, his parents must be loaded and blind to let him do that"

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.

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

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"

Rice, generally referring to an Asian make of vehicle, Rocket generally referring to the speed or power of that particular vehicle. A true Rice Rocket means that the owner has tricked out his/her ride with actual engine/performance equipment to allow it to go faster. Often times, the owner will also do external/internal appearance mods to give the vehicle a racey look. Some people, however, forget to do engine/performance mods, and only do external appearance mods, meaning they don't have a a true Rice Rocket. They have a typical Asian vehicle that may or may not look fast, depending on the mods done to it. In recent times, "Rice Rocket" has been used to describe not only cars of Asian origin, but also some cars of European and North American descent that have been tricked out to go and look fast.
Hey, look at Tai Pai over there in his Rice Rocket...Man, the $12,000 he put into his Civic's engine mods, ground FX, rims and suspension really paid off. He killed that Mustang GT that cost $20,000. But look over there, Tai Pai's little brother Ling Lee tried racing the same Mustang GT. He got killed, because the Ground FX and Coffee-Can exhaust didn't do anything on that Corolla. Guess he doesn't have a true Rice Rocket!
