The AE86 series of the Toyota Corolla Levin and Toyota Sprinter Trueno are small, front-engine/rear-wheel drive models within the fifth generation Corolla range — marketed by Toyota from 1983 to 1987 in coupe and hatchback configurations. They were the last Corollas to offer rear-wheel drive.

In classic Toyota code, the "A" represents the engine that came in the car (4A series), "E" represents the Corolla, "8" represents the fifth generation (E80 series) and "6" represents the variation within this generation.

Toyota AE86 (Eight-Six, or Hachi-Roku) models are the most prominent type of car in the Initial D series, the most iconic of which is the Toyota Sprinter Trueno driven by Takumi Fujiwara and his father, Bunta.

Toyota Corolla Levin[]

The Corolla Levin AE86 was the fourth car of its name. The name Levin is Old English for Lightning, although it gets its name from the town of Levin in New Zealand, one of the venues for the Tasman Championship. The Levin features fixed rectangular headlights.

Only the 3door model of the AE86 Levin is shown in Initial D, driven by Wataru Akiyama. He used this Levin to defeat Takumi Fujiwara, but failed when the latter overtook him. Later, Wataru would later equip his Levin with a supercharged engine in an attempt to defeat Keisuke Takahashi but failed once more when his Levin slipped in the rain.

Toyota Sprinter Trueno[]

The Toyota Sprinter line of cars is a variant of the Toyota Corolla line, and aimed to be sportier than the Corolla line. The name Trueno comes from the Spanish word for thunder. The Trueno featured retractable "pop up" headlights.

Two types of Trueno are shown in Initial D: the 3door hatchback and the 2door coupe.

The Sprinter Trueno is a series staple car, made iconic through its use by Takumi Fujiwara. Takumi has used this car as his primary mode of transportation for racing and doing delivery runs. Shinji Inui would later use a 2 door variant of the car in Final Stage, which he uses in an attempt to beat Takumi. The Trueno has appeared on a significant amount of merchandise and appears in every Initial D video game.
