Kicking off the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Toyota pulls the red curtain on its FT-1 concept coupe. The sleek FT-1 (Future Toyota 1) has been a project of the automotive company’s Calty design studio for over two years now, and will further commemorate its 40th anniversary.
Pairing a traditional front-engine placement with rear-wheel drive, the aggressively curvy two-door concept is heavily influenced by Toyota’s sports car past, especially its Celica and Supra lines. Exterior features include a 2000GT-inspired wraparound windshield and side windows, a retractable rear wing, robust fenders, an Enzo-like front bumper, a unique vent system, and much more. On the inside, the driver sits back in a low cockpit with an F1-inspired steering wheel, a delta-shaped display zone, composite seating and a heads up display to keep its driver focused on the road ahead.
Though its technical features and possible release details are unknown, the Toyota FT-1 will be available on Sony’s Gran Turismo 6.
