Ask any car modifier about the significance of the number 86 when it relates to Toyota vehicles.  The AE86, produced back in the 80s.  With it’s well balanced body and affordability it was turned into an ideal road weapon.  And we cannot forget about the iconic manga cartoon Initial D which the hero uses an AE86 as his car of choice racing in the winding roads of Mt Akina, defeating some of the most powerfull production cars on the road.  To continue the legacy of the AE86, Toyota has now created the FT-86 II Concept car.  It’s aim, to bring back the fun in driving and aggressiveness of a Toyota.
