Initial D Wiki


Sakamoto (坂本, Sakamoto) is a rally driver who trains almost exclusively on mountain passes. He has the uncanny ability to take any car and put it in a drift on a mountain pass, usually to figure a car's characteristics and limitations. He was outsourced by Wataru Akiyama, recruited by Nobuhiko of the Northern Saitama Alliance in a desperate measure to defeat Takumi of Project D in a downhill race using a Suzuki Cappuccino, a Kei Car lighter than the Eight-Six. His speciality is driving Front engine, rear drive layout cars.

Trivia[]

  • In some of the Arcade Stage games and the Funimation subtitles for Fourth Stage, he is said to be a Ferrari driver, this is a mistranslation however as he is a Rally driver.
    • This is likely due to the Japanese pronounciation of rally (Rarī) being similar to Rari, a nickname for Ferarris.
  • Sakamoto is his surname, and his first name has never been stated.
