The main character of the anime and manga Initial D, Takumi Fujiwara, uses his father’s AE86 Trueno GT-Apex Hatchback for racing and making his tofu deliveries. Also in Initial D, Takumi’s friend, Itsuki Takeuchi, drives an AE85 Levin, initially mistaking it for an AE86. Later on in the series, an imposter Takumi drives his own AE86 Trueno – although it is a Kouki (late model) instead of a Zenki (early model). Throughout the series, two of Takumi’s opponents would drive AE86s, the first being Wataru Akiyama, who drives a turbocharged (later converted to supercharged) AE86 Corolla Levin and Shinji Inui, who drives the Notchback coupe version of the AE86 Trueno in the series’ finale. The AE86 is also a playable vehicle in the Initial D Arcade Stage series. A Corolla Levin AE86 also made a brief cameo in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Fast and Furious 4.
The popularity of the manga is cited as the main cause of the car’s high resale price, which is often referred to as “Takumi tax” or “Tofu tax”, after the main character and his tofu delivery occupation.
