Toyota UK has created an innovative new GT86 Concept car that is clearly inspired by the Initial D manga comic series.

The vehicle is designed to mirror the fictional vehicle used by Takumi, a downhill drift driver who is the main protagonist of the Initial D comic book series. For that reason, it is finished in black and white exterior touches with exaggerated yellow fog lights that offer a truly epic, comic book-inspired style. In terms of performance, the vehicle sits atop 17-inch RS Watanabe F8 wheels for added performance.

Ultimately, this Toyota GT86 Concept car shows how the automotive world can look to fiction and cultural symbols for design inspiration with truly stunning results.
