Ai Fukami is the race queen featured only in Ridge Racer V to replace Reiko Nagase. However, she was less popular than Reiko, and thus Reiko returned to Ridge Racer after an online poll.
According to the manual, she was born somewhere in Kanagawa on December 12th, 1979. She works as a model, and aspires to be an automotive writer. At 20 years old, she debuts at a younger age than Reiko does back in Rage Racer.
