My Top 10 Cars in Anime

I don't mean the cars from the movie Cars.

Nothing drives people more crazy than someone publishing a Top 10 List. It doesn't matter what it is about or who wrote it, it will never match what you or I may think. So here I go, dropping my 2 cents into the mix with this - My Top 10 Cars in Anime (or Manga if you want since most cross over anyway). I also included race cars in with the regular cars.

I tried to get some responses for suggestions via Twitter, but only had 2. Kind of a let down as I was hoping to have others input their ideas for this list. One wasn't technically a car, but it did get an honorable mention (and you will see why). I could go into details on why I think each is how I presented it. It could be the anime, the drivers, the cars themselves and what they can do. It is a veritable smorgasbord of possibilities. I think however that is over the top and not needed. It is a list and nothing but a list of what I think are the best cars.

Take a few minutes for the list to soak in and then (and only then) see how well I did. I know I probably missed something, so please chime in :^D

10. Natsumi  and Miyuki  Modified Honda Today-G from Your Under Arrest.

9. Takumi's Toyota Corolla Trueno AE86 from Initial D.

8. Hayato's Sugo Grand Prix ν-Asurada AKF-0/G from Future GPX Cyber Formula Sin.

7. Hitomi's Gravity Car from Appleseed

6. George's vintage Jaguar which I think is a 1963 XKE from Paradise Kiss (suggested by @Slmaa_6)

5. Misato Katsuragi Renault Alpine A310 from Neon Genesis Evangelion.

4. JP's Customized Trans Am from Redline.

3. Lupin III's 1957 Fiat 500 from the film 'The Castle of Cagliostro'.

2. Rally Vincent's 1967 Shelby Cobra GT500 from Gunsmith Cats.

1. Speed's Mach 5 from Speed Racer.

This is an Honorable Mention as it isn't necessarily a car, but it was a great suggestion by @IGypsyWoman:

Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro

Did I miss the marks completely on this list or leave out an obvious car?


  1. I know! Cat Bus is off the category cos it's not a car! Lolz... Among the top 10, I like Trueno AE86 from Initial D. For me, the command car from Patlabor is definitely the best design car.

  2. Thanks for letting me know about Patlabor. I also didn't get to Dominion Tank Police which had there own cars. I guess I will not have to think up a Top 10 'Other' Vehicles list!

  3. s30 from Wangan midnight? :(

    1. Another excellent car - maybe change to top 11?


Don't just Read and Run, leave me a note about what you thought of the blog!
