A new update to drifting simulator DRIFT21 has just been released for PC, bringing the iconic Sprinter Trueno GT version of the Toyota AE86 to the game.
Polish developer ECC Games S.A. has also brought a few other improvements to their drift and car mechanic sim, adding over 25 track challenges, Elite Drift Series stickers and a few user interface improvements. They have also re-balanced some challenge requirements.
The Toyota AE86 is an iconic drift car produced from 1983-87. Originally intended as a mid-level sports hatch-back, it soon became a hit with the racing and drifting fraternity. Its front-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration, coupled to an optional limited-slip differential and free-revving 1.6l twin-cam engine, has cemented its legendary status. In fact, Toyota still makes parts for it today!
The car is so popular it became the focus of the Initial D manga series in 1995, leading to a live-action movie in 2005. The makers of Car Mechanic Simulator have made the car available in DRIFT21 right now, so it’s time for players to live out their Initial D fantasies around the iconic Japanese Ebisu circuits in-game.
