Drift King legend, Keiichi Tsuchiya, is a big fan of the Toyota Trueno/Levin AE86, fondly known as the Hatchi Roku. There is one time on his Best Motoring/Hot Version video specials where he drove his ever favourite Toyota Trueno AE86 and quoted that how he wishes Toyota to make such fun cars again. Come 2012 and his dream has come true.

In this video, we will see the legend competes with some of UK’s best motoring journalist, Autocar UK’s Steve Sutcliffe and Top Gear UK’s Ollie Marriage to see who can handle the Toyota 86 (known as the GT86 in Europe) in a true gymkhana style battle.
No matter who wins, all three unanimously agree the Toyota 86 is indeed a wonderful car to drive for driving enthusiasts. I guess Keiichi pretty much love this car, a lot.
