Attached Image To pay tribute to the successful comic series which has since spawn a few movies and gained many fans, Toyota U.K. has created the GT86 Initial D Concept. The new age 86 borrows its livery directly from Takumi's 'panda-coloured' AE86 coupe. For those now familiar with Initial D, it is the story of Takumi Fujiwara, a teenager who drives a modified AE86 everyday to make deliveries for his father's tofu shop. After many years of doing so, he unknowingly honed his driving skills.

Of course, the all-important Fujiwara Tofu Shop decal has to be on the car too.
