Meet the Man With a Collection of Pristine Toyota Corolla GT-S AE86s

Cue the Eurobeat playlist.

By //Automotive

Petrolicious, curators of dream cars and the owners who drive them, examines the interest of one Antonio Alvendia and his supply of Toyota Corolla GT-S coupes. Commonly known as the AE86 or the “Hachiroku” from cult Japanese anime Initial D, the classic Toyota two-door has been made famous for its rear-wheel drive agility, nimble chassis and overall ease for drifting. Antonio explains that, while only showcasing a “Zenki” 1985 and “Kouki” 1986 version, his collection actually contains five versions of the same car; “I’m just a victim of a good deal.” Not only is his collection impressive, but Antonio has also contributed to the drifting scene with a published book on the subculture as well as consulting with the developers with the Need for Speed games and organizing events — the resume for a true “Hachiroku” fanatic. Check the video above and tell us what you think of the AE86.
