What is Takumi in Rocket League?
Takumi is a car model present in Rocket League. This car was released in August 2015 and runs on an Octane body type. This car was only initially available for players via the supersonic fury DLC pack though it can now be obtained through playing matches.
The design is reminiscent of an American muscle car. I’m particular, this car is a re-imagining of the real-life sixth generation of the Chevrolet Camero. This means a bulky frame, a subtle spoiler, and a series of lift kits and protruding fixtures to make the vehicle look track ready. It terms of accuracy to the real-life inspiration, it is a very good piece of design.
The Takumi model runs off the octane body type. This essentially means that this is a variant of the most popular choice in the roster. Here is a rundown of the stats for the Takumi
- LENGTH: 118.01
- WIDTH: 84.20
- HEIGHT: 36.16
- SURFACE AREA: 34495
- TURNING AVERAGE: 2.18
- 0% BOOST SPEED: 2.323
- 100% BOOST SPEED: 1.967
With these stats and the octane hitbox, this means that the model provides some excellent benefits. The key highlights being the ability to tightly dribble, win aerial duels, and has a deceptively good shot impact as well. The octane body type is the perfect all-rounder which allows for pretty much any playstyle. Meaning you can chop and change your role on the team on the fly.
Within casual games, this is why it is a very popular choice. Yet also finds a lot of use in professional settings too. It’s an excellent choice whether you love to attack, defend, or tend goal.
