Toyota FT-1 Concept Car

Toyota had a surprise for the North American International Auto Show. It revealed the FT-1 Sports Car Concept. The FT part stands for Future Toyota and it is the ultimate expression of a Toyota coupe design.

This concept was started nearly two year ago. “The FT-1 is a dream-project for a designer and car enthusiast like myself,” said Alex Shen, Calty’s Studio Chief Designer. “Our team was heavily influenced by Toyota’s sports car past, especially Celica and Supra, and we sought to capture some of that history. It is an aggressive, track-focused sports car concept with a presence that has been amplified for shock and awe.”

You must be wondering when I am talking about a concept car which may or may not be made available to the general public? I find concept vehicles fascinating. They are examples of what manufacturers are capable of doing. It is a showcase of their talent in technology and design.

The Toyota FT-1 Concept Car is a stunning machine. It comes with a soul rivetting design which is muscular and athletic. It comes with a cabin which comes with minimalist styling, premium materials and the latest in technology. This fantastic machine also comes with an ideally balanced front-engine, rear wheel-drive layout that is powered by a high-technology, high performance internal combustion engine.

“Sports cars represent the ultimate driving expression in its purest form. As car enthusiasts ourselves, this is the kind of project we dream about working on,” said Calty Design Research president Kevin Hunter. “Beyond its obvious five-alarm visual impact, FT-1 is symbolic of a new chapter for Toyota Global Design. This provocative concept truly captures the passion, excitement, and energy of the Toyota we are evolving into and embodies elements of the emotion and performance that Toyota will imprint upon future production designs.”
