Why there isn't a BMW M3/Audi Quattro/Mercedes AMG in the Initial D manga/anime series?
>THEY WOULD SHIT IN JDM FACES!!
ooohhh there is no replacement for displacement!!
But rly i know its all Japanese and shit but why didn't they put some other cars?
Because how would poor people who can't afford anything better feel good about themselves being blown away by an m3 or Audi quattro.
Let's face it, initial d is a shitty Chinese cartoon with the worst plot to come out since scooby doo introduced scrappy doo
>piece of shit
To be fair, it was less of a piece of shit once it got a Formula Atlantic engine shoved in the front, and even before that Bunta had presumably tons of money into the suspension and chassis.
GTR you would see, but Supras? Why would i want to see ugly car?
Never saw one..
Well who the fucks gives a shit about poor people? I want to see real cars racing not some shitboxes with 150hp
Rarity, expensive, often too heavy due to them being luxury models with tons of equipment, and I'm guessing they thought these cars wouldn't "connect" with the viewers, hence why the only foreign vehicle featured was driven by some old sugardaddy
It would probably be way more interesting if they did put in cars from other countries (of course takumi would have to win and this goes double against any foreign car regardless of what it is)
Stereotypes and "Muh feels" about cars aside. id want to see him race a few Ferraris as well as race people with cars from other types of car culture.
>rally (audi, lancia, renault/peugeot etc
>euro super cars
>sporty australian muscle
>maybe even a snek acr (heh...)
E36/46 M3 would've been a reasonable opponent, and did well against even the best Japanese sports cars (R34 GTR, Latest FD RX7/NSXs, Evo/STis). E36s are also reasonably common in Japan for a European car, with a few used as race cars there.
Just type in Best Motoring M3 into YouTube, they reviewed a few of them.
indeed, tuned out version of the stock car in limited edition
>BMW E46 M3 comfy sport tourer with shit load of equipment.
Put that chinese Honda shit aginst BMW M3 CSL and look what will happen.
>shitty rear suspension
E36 compact. Never offered with the M3 engine, uses the E30's antiquated suspension, pretty light too.
If you want a really similar car, a RWD Kadett might apply too. Or a first gen Escort.
Easy nigga, i was just proposing my idea like the OP when he made the tread.
>But rly i know its all Japanese and shit but why didn't they put some other cars?
That's why i said what i said.
>Put that chinese Honda shit aginst BMW M3 CSL and look what will happen
csl is still slower
want to put the m3 up against some real jdm instead of ff shitboxes?
Ferrari is oft too fast for the touge
allot of wasted potential if you take it there https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBpB06hn1CY
try pick something between 1983 and 1994
but if I had to kill the touge id pick something older
Ferrari dino 206 s spider
Because everyone knows that BMW owners are the worst.
Although not initial D, Blackbird was proof that the Japanese could appreciate top-tier cars of which BMW and Mercedes do not make nowadays.
No idea, but I'd imagine the American version of Takumi would drive a Mustang SVO and deliver pizzas.
He runs for Mary Jane's pizza. The reason his dad is squinty eyed is because he's a degenerate stoner. Dagumi and bunts hate pizza because Mary Jane pizza is fucking trash. This shit writes itself.
