Toyota FT-1Concept revealed – it’s a new Toyota Supra
Toyota teased us with a concept photo back in December that looked like it was previewing a Supra for the 21st century, and it’s been revealed today at the Detroit Auto Show as the Toyota FT-1 Concept. The FT-1 Concept is the result of Toyota’s Calty design studio in California to create the ultimate sports car and, say Toyota, is a strikingly modern design that makes reference to past Toyotas like the 2000GT from the 1960s.
Toyota aren’t making any claims for the FT-1′s powertrain yet (FT stands for ‘Future Toyota’ and the ’1′ the ultimate) and comes with a front engine/ rear wheel drive configuration, with a cockpit set back within the wheelbase and wraparound screen.
There’s big front wings, big air intakes, retractable rear wing and exhaust ports, with an F 1-Style steering wheel and heads-up display inside.
At the moment the very appealing Toyota FT-1 is just a concept, but it will be available to drive on Gran Turismo 6.
The sooner it’s available to drive in the real world, the better.
