Sean suggests settling their differences in a race. Han Seoul-Oh, Takashi’s associate, notices that Sean does not have a car and offers his Nissan to him for the race, curious to see Sean’s capabilities as a driver. Twinkie gives Sean short lesson on how to drift before the race begins. Despite his efforts, the Nissan is severely damaged when Sean is unable to prevent it from crashing into the pillars and walls of the garage whenever he breaked at the last second. Han uses the damages to his Nissan as a way of placing Sean in his debt.

Following the death of Han, the damaged Silvia is rediscovered by Reiko when Han’s team is looking for parts to repair Sean’s father’s 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback for his final race against Takashi.

The Nissan Silvia was Han’s favorite car. Twinkie refers to the Nissan as the “Mona Lisa” to empathize its importance to Sean Boswell.
