* TechnologyPorn: Just like ''Manga/InitialD'', the elaborate details of the cars and their minute technical quirks are discussed extensively, with lovingly detailed interior and component close-ups.


* WhatAPieceOfJunk: Just like how nobody at first took Takumi's old, beaten [=AE86=] seriously in ''Manga/InitialD'', nobody at first takes Kanata's old, beaten [=GT86=], which is the older variant from before the facelift. What makes it perform well in Kanata's hands is the inherent well-balanced design of the car's lightweight frame, which allows it to perform with a nimble, stable profile during the downhill mountain pass course sections in a manner that brings out Kanata's skills as trained by Takumi.

During this time, a 19 year old [[ButNotTooForeign Japanese-British]] racer called Kanata Livington comes to Japan for the first time in his life to look for his [[DisappearedDad missing father]]. Kanata moves over to Ren's house for his stay and she quickly falls for him. To help find his father, Kanata decides to go race in the MFG under his father's surname. To do so, he uses an old Toyota 86 belonging to a friend of Ren's father called Ogata and becomes fast friends with Shun. To everyone's surprise, Kanata proves to be a phenomenally skilled racer and rises to 15th place in his first race, despite his antiquated car and it soon turns out that Kanata is the pupil of none other than the famous Japanese rally driver, Takumi Fujiwara.
