As the title mentions Toyota's UK division recently unveiled an Initial D-inspired concept version of the Toyota 86 and showcased it in, of all things, a few pages of manga wherein the Toyota 86 rashes Takumi in his AE86.

The decal on the door looks really odd for a production car. Remove that and you'd have something, but in the end it's still just a marked up GT86.

The only thing I like about this picture is that the driver is wearing Tigers. tongue.gif

The funny thing is they went as far as replicating similar modifications done to the AE86 in Initial D with this concept like the obvious carbon-fibre hood and Watanabe wheels to the less obvious like a TRD suspension, Fujitsubo exhaust system, and a close imitation of the Cibié foglights on the AE86; heck even the engine cover was painted silver.

I'm sure a lot of that can be done on the cheap without spending money on the "official" version.

Silver engine cover? Go get some chrome spray paint and 10 minutes in the garage. laugh.gif

I do not think you can do any tofu delivery with the gt86's trunk.
