Only every once in a while do you get a true surprise debut at a motor show these days; the information is normally leaked a few days before in most cases. Meet the Toyota FT-1 supercar concept.
Totota FT-1 Concept
The FT-1 stands for Future Toyota 1. The FT-1 was debuted at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. There are rumours that this could be the Supra concept/replacement of the future. We can only hope this is true one day, as the FT-1 is a beauty.
Looking at the design of the car it looks like a beefed up version of the FT-86 concept with a nice exhaust that spawned the GT86, you can also see elements of Nissan’s 370Z, Lexus’ LF-A, a huge retractable rear wing, and a taste of a formula one nose cone.
‘Place of business’ is how Toyota describe the interior of the FT-1. I love this idea; the interior has more of a fighter jet feel than a car interior feel. It is very snug inside and the driver benefits from a coloured heads up display and a Formula-1 style steering wheel which is very nice indeed.Amazingly those of you who own Gran Turismo 6 can actually download the FT-1 concept and take the car for a test drive yourself. I love the world we live in today!
