Bunta Fujiwara's Subaru Impreza WRX STi Coupe Type R Version V (GC8F), also known simply as the Impreza or the Imp, is the signature car of Bunta Fujiwara, though it is occasionally driven by his son, Takumi.

History[edit | edit source]

After his son, Takumi, joins Project D, Bunta Fujiwara plans to get himself a new car, as the Eight-Six that him and his son use is used by Takumi more than himself. He asks his friend and mechanic Masashi Suzuki to find him a new car to drive, eventually getting him a Subaru Impreza. During a test drive of the new Impreza, he enters into an impromptu battle with his son on Akina's downhill, performing a gutter run alongside him before passing him on the straightaway. After this encounter, Bunta decided to buy the Impreza, keeping it a secret from his son.

After Project D's second set of battles with the Northern Saitama Alliance, Bunta reveals the Impreza to Takumi, who realises that Bunta was the racer he battled on Akina. Bunta tells him that he should alternate which car he uses for deliveries from now on. Bunta made this decision so that Takumi can realise the weaknesses that his Eight-Six has, and so that he can become a better driver

Takumi would also use the Impreza on several of his dates with Mika Uehara, as the Impreza had a better air conditioning system than the Eight-Six. Takumi would continue to use the Impreza after Project D's breakup, bringing it with him to the end party with the members and staff.

Exclusively in the anime, Takumi passed a Toyota GT86 while on a delivery run on Akina.
