#10. Top 10 Cars in GTA 5: Karin Futo
The Karin Futo is one of the best drift cars in GTA 5. The name “Futo” is a diminutive of the working file name during production, dorifuto, a Japanese word for drift. Due to the design of a “drift car” it takes a considerable amount of time to get used to the slippery handling. Despite its relatively small shape, the Karin Futo is classed as a Sports, rather than Coupes or Compacts. This most likely because of its superior performance compared to other cars in its class.
When customizing the Karin Futo, the player can find a brand of rims named ‘Fujiwara’. This makes a reference to the anime Initial D, which popularized the AE86. Fujiwara is the surname of the main Initial D protagonist, Takumi Fujiwara. The rims are very similar to the ones used in the Initial D´s AE86 (black RS Watanabe F8).
Based off of the Toyota Levin Coupe with some cues from the Nissan Skyline R30, the Karin Futo is great fun to drive, and makes an excellent escape or pursuit vehicle in missions. It is also an ideal car to drift since it is a light weight, front engine rear wheel drive car. The only possible disadvantages during a pursuit or escape is that the vehicle is small, lacking the power to move other vehicles, and only has two doors, rather than four.
