Tofu High Speed Delivery Vehicle

Wednesday, 26th October, 2011

The Initial D series created a hype not only in Japan but especially here in our parts of the world and it helped a lot of people with understanding what is the AE86 acutally about…


No matter if you love the series or hate all the hype around it, you have to admit that this is one really well build AE86. And as you probably noticed its an exact replica of the famous tofu supplier.

And when we say exact replica we mean it. It obviously doesnt have a race spec Silvertop that revs to 12.000 rpm but otherwise it has absolutely everything taken from the cartoon version.

The base is of course a zenki GT-Apex Trueno that sits on 14×6.5 Watanabe RS (just like in the series, right?). The car was build by Carland 86, one of the most respected AE86 specialists in Japan. They added a few bits and pieces that make this Trueno not only look good but go pretty fast too.

Like we said earlier its not a race-spec Silvertop but were sure this slightly tuned Blacktop can make the drive interesting too. Naturally theres a TRD LSD and a set of Carland 86s own suspension too. The Type-D exhaust is also from Carland 86 and amogst others there are parts like Custo sway bars, Endless CC-X brake pads, KOYO cooler and many more.

While you have to be Akira Iida to get the same engine as in the series you wont have any big issues with replicating the interior. This 86 has it all – red zenki interior, obligatory cup holders and a tiny rev counter on the steering wheel column. And dont forget the ItalVolanti wheel.

And thats it. Were still not sure if we should love it or hate it but we have to say that this is one damn well build Corollas. What do you guys think?

    Je to parádní autíčko. Nevím, proč vy ne, ale já mám seriál Initial D docela rád :)

    Na seriálu právě neni nic špatnýho, nás to taky baví. Ale podle mě to hodně lidí dovedlo k názoru že stačí koupit nějakou vypeklou hachi a hned z nich budou mistři v doručování tofu, ale neviděj už těch několik set tisíc investic do toho aby to fungovalo. Si vem kolik sme v těch vracích utopili my a kde sme…

    Jinak mě tahle taky rozsekala, hlavně ten interiér. Kde kdo si na bílou pandu nalepí na dveře těch pár klikiháků, ale dotáhnout to do takovýho detailu jako tady…

    Paci sa :) vzdy som fandil Initial D ale nieje to dovod koli ktoremu som sa rozhodol mat AE86. Len sa to proste zvrhlo a zrazu ju mam :D
    Inak rad by som oznamil prirastok do rodiny uz nemame doma len AE86 ale aj TE71 liftback zachranili sme ho pred zosrotovanim ma to sice len 1.6 2TB motor ale aj to je celkom fajn a prace ako na kostole :/

    Jo, Spitfire má pravdu… já jsem v tom za tři roky za 130 litrů a je fakt, že z vraku je konečně funkční kočka… ale stejně by klidně ještě polkla… :)
