What would Bunta Fujiwara drive in 2008?
A Toyota Ipsum (called Picnic outside Japan):
Funny he didn’t buy a Toyota Estima because the Ipsum is FWD and the Estima RWD (MR).
The Japanese Estima may be a bit less well equiped than the American supercharged version, but it sure does have potential:
Manji drifting on the straight!!! 😀
So the big question is: why would Bunta Fujiwara favor the Ipsum above the Estima then? IMO I think it is quite natural of Bunta to do such a thing: Takumi first learns to drive the Trueno AE86 (FR layout) really hard. Then he gets beaten by Bunta in an AWD Impreza, so he has to learn to drive that AWD really hard as well. Logically Bunta would then have to beat Takumi with a FWD, so what better car to totally humiliate Takumi with???
Right: the Toyota Ipsum!
