Toyota Reveals Design Revolution With Sports Car Concept [Detroit 2014]
The FT-1 Concept, made with enthusiasts in mind, will be available to drive in Gran Turismo 6.
Adopting the moniker FT for “Future Toyota”, the sleek sports car concept unveiled at the 2014 North American International Auto Show represents a new design and engineering focus. Admitting that their cars were lacking passion, Toyota designers got a dream project to create a pure, enthusiast-focused sports coupe.
Designed at Toyota’s Calty studio in California, the team worked with Polyphony Digital, makers of the Gran Turismo video game to offer the FT-1 in the new Gran Tursmo 6 edition.
The FT-1 is an obvious successor to the Supra model and draws on styling elements from the Scion FRS /Subaru BRZ models. For now Toyota hasn’t confirmed any production intentions.
