Series summary from MangaUpdates:
The day after he finds himself dumped by his girlfriend, Sorayama Shun recieves a letter... from himself? The letter was from Shun 25 years ago for his future self. The letter reminds him of the time when he dreamed of owning a Countach and being a successful professional racer. With loads of luck and his ambition to make his childhood dream come true, he finds himself as a new owner of an LP400 Countach.
Kenn's Comment: Read a bit of this a few years back, but take too much to it then, but it does certainly build on you. I wouldn't say I'm a car guy, but I do appreciate a nice lookin' car...and being a guy, we like anything that's loud, shiny and goes really, really fast.

Anywho, unlike Initial D, which focuses on drifting the mountain passes in modded cars, this one's emphasis lies in the realm of the super cars - the powerful cars that would turn heads wherever they pass through...and we could only dream to afford. Likewise, you won't be finding these tearing up and down mountain passes. I doubt you'd be able to pull off the stunts they do in Initial D when you're barreling down the road at 300km/h in one of these.

Anywho, with 27 ongoing volumes, you'll be reading this one for years.
