Initial D & the 2023 Toyota GR86 in Singapore

CarBuyer Team

Would Initial D’s Takumi Fujiwara warm to the idea of driving the new Toyota GR86?

(or maybe GUNMA, JAPAN)

Remember when Japan’s legendary King of Drift Keiichi Tsuchiya showed up Takumi in the Toyota/Initial D ad for the new Toyota GR86 coupe?

Well Takumi’s dad, Bunta, just got his hands on a new GR86 for his boy to try out.

Takumi Fujiwara is still not so sure about the GR86. (Nevermind that the car is the back is a Levin and not a Trueno for now.)

“Don’t knock it till you drive it, son.”

“The water cup test is still coming with you.”

After news of the next-generation Toyota GR86 arriving was confirmed in late 2022, Toyota’s rear-wheel drive sports coupe has seen limited but healthy interest amongst the car enthusiast community in Singapore.

Toyota may seem to just sell plenty of Harrier SUVs and Yaris Cross Hybrids, but the brand is also one that has consistently delivered on fun cars for driving enthusiasts over the years, with the GR Yaris selling out its pre-orders in 2021 here.

Special thanks to #yipyeets for allowing the Toyota Levin to be featured and for the use of the location!
