Initial D

Lego Toyota AE86

Insert Keiichi Tsuchiya for twice the awesome

This innocuous Japanese hatchback is actually one of the most legendary drift cars ever made. Toyota’s AE86 shot to super-stardom at the hands of Keiichi Tsuchiya, and then many others, in the Initial D Drift Championship. Light, rear wheel drive, and endlessly tuneable, the AE86 was Japan’s Ford Escort and helped launch both Toyota and drifting into the consciousness of motor racing fans worldwide. AadenH recreates the legend on Flickr and at his MOCpage.
