> Nismo 400R should've been Shinigami's car

One of the issues I saw with the final Kanagawa races was Shigeno reusing cars that have previously been featured in Initial D (S15, AE86 3dr). Hence, seeing the R32 reappear as Shinigami's devil car didn't sit well with me.

Though it did give us a same-gen GT-R vs Rotary battle with Ryosuke, I would like to think that the Three-Two in ID would always be associated with Nakazato of the Night Kids.

So, as a compromise, why don't Shinigami drive an R33 - the only R not to feature in ID? Furthermore, why not the more rarer and bonkers of the Three-Three: the Nismo 400R?

If you are unfamiliar with the 400R (which I doubt), I've put a link below for you to read.
