** The most {{egregious}} example by far is the [[spoiler:cameo of the 2012 Toyota 86 in the ending of the anime]].

* CulturalTranslation: The first English dub from {{Tokyopop}} had all kinds of special effects added to it, and threw out the Eurobeat soundtrack in favor of rap. This didn't sit very well with purists of the series, and for good reason. The justification behind this was Tokyopop was only going to change the music for the TV broadcast in order to introduce up and coming new artists, but the original music would be retained in the subtitled version (or something like that).

** Every day since he was thirteen, Bunta sends Takumi on a tofu delivery run up Mount Akina to a hotel near a lake during 4 in the morning (regardless of the weather) without spilling a single drop of water in the cup holder; the idea being that if the water spills, the box of tofu he's delivering in the trunk will get damaged. In RealLife, this is physically impossible, [[RuleOfCool but Takumi makes it possible]].
** After Project D is established, Ryosuke forces his brother to do runs up and down Mount Akagi while trying to ''exactly'' match the time assigned to him -- ''without a timer''.
