* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The circumstances of the Devil Z rejecting its drivers after the passing of the original owner. Akio could've easily avoided the construction barriers but the car apparently kept going forward against Akio's will, no matter how much he denies it. Over time however, the car eventually accepts its driver and could do more other being the fastest.

** Many rivals tend to end their challenges this way, whether its for personal reasons (like Hiramoto) or simply to forfeit a losing battle (like Kijima). Noted exceptions are Kuroki and Harada, who both blew their engines.

''Wangan Midnight'' is a manga series by Michiharu Kusunoki revolving around Tokyo's highway racing scene. The story primarily revolves around Akio Asakura, a high school student with a knack for [[ChickMagnet attracting many women]] and taking them for rides in his car. One day, he is passed by a black Porsche 964, dubbed the "Blackbird" and driven by CombatMedic Tatsuya Shima, and attempts to race it, but [[CurbStompBattle quickly eats its dust]]. One day, Akio heads for the junkyard and finds an old blue Nissan Fairlady Z (known as the Datsun 2''xx''Z series in North America), discovering that it has been tuned from an old and outdated piece of junk into a souped-up racing monster known as the Devil Z ([[NamesTheSame no]], not that BigBad from ''Anime/TransformersSuperGodMasterforce''). Despite warnings about how the car is supposedly cursed, that all of its previous owners happen to share his full name, and that every one of those owners has ''died driving the car'', he takes the dealer up on the offer and gives the Devil Z a spin, and discovered that the Z not only has unparalleled power, but seems to have a mind of its own, as he soon wipes out spectacularly trying to control it.
