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.
