''éX-Driver'' (often abbreviated simply to ''éX-D'') is a six-episode {{OVA}} series created by Creator/KosukeFujishima (''Manga/YoureUnderArrest'', ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', ''Anime/{{Piano}}'') and animated by Creator/{{Actas}}, Creator/ALine and Creator/{{Xebec}}, released early in the TurnOfTheMillennium (whether it was 2000 or 2001, however, is a matter of debate between the [=OVAs=] and the internet). The series focused around three teens (Lisa Sakakino, Lorna Endou and Souichi Sugano) and their attempt to corral the out-of-control vehicles using manually-driven ones.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Episodes 5 and 6, in which a former éX-Driver and his crew try to ''kill'' the three heroes (they only manage to injure two of them though). The Movie also.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Largely intentional for the job. Lisa does play this straight on numerous occasions though. As do the AI cars when malfunctioning. Ditto the rivals in episodes 5 and 6.
