Painted in a signature panda white and black, and emblazoned with the logo of the Fujiwara Tofu shop, this is the hero car of the series, driven by young racing prodigy Takumi Fujiwara, who doesn't actually seem to care much about racing. The Sprinter Trueno is very similar to the Corolla GT-S that Canada got, and the popularity of the series led to a huge jump in value for these once-neglected cars. Regrettably, while many young men were trying to learn to drift like their animated hero, they often ended up making an unintended off-road excursion, meaning that even fewer have survived – we just couldn't find any.
You own 0 S13s
Takumi's first real introduction to street racing comes as a result of his friendship with Koichiro Iketani. They all work at a local gas station together, and race on Mount Akina at night. Iketani's ride is an S13-chassis Sylvia, one which he carefully modifies piece by piece. He's not an amazing driver, but represents more of a journeyman approach to the night-racing culture.
You own 0 R32sOne of Takumi's early races is against the mighty GT-R, considered by many to be the hero car of the JDM scene. The R32 GT-R was the first and perhaps best of the mighty Godzilla Skylines, and while this one can't beat Takumi either, that's probably down to driver talent. The style favoured here is grip, as the all-wheel-drive GT-R doesn't need to drift to get down the course quickly.
You own 0 FCsTakumi's high-speed abilities soon attract the attention of Ryosuke Takahashi, one of a pair of street-racing brothers. The more cerebral of the two, Ryosuke recognizes Takumi's innate skill as having great potential. Super potential, you might say. Nicknamed “Akagi's White Comet,” Ryosuke drives a pale second-generation Mazda RX-7 turbo. He spends his time glued to his laptop, analyzing race results and breaking down the possible modifications a rival might have.
You own 0 FDsRyosuke's hot-headed brother is Keisuke, and he doesn't like to lose. Going head-to-head against Takumi, he can't believe that the young racer with the old car can hold him off – he declares Takumi his rival and continually tries to figure out ways to beat him. Eventually, they become teammates. Keisuke's car is a third-generation Mazda RX-7, heavily modified for racing. Drip +100
