Toyota FT-1 Concept makes a surprise debut in Detroit

Toyota has unveiled a daring new coupe concept at the Detroit motor show dubbed FT-1.

The new FT-1 concept is the the work of Toyota’s California-based Calty design studio, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and the mission was to create the ultimate sports car.

All we can say is yes bring it please! The concept is modern, yet making reference to Toyota’s rich sports car history, going back to the 2000GT of the mid-1960s with its wraparound windscreen and side glass arrangement.

The curvilinear form features pronounced front wings, sharply defined contrasts, large air intakes, exhaust ports and retractable rear wing.

No engine specs were released, but the concept has a front engine/rear-wheel drive configuration.

Toyota Supra successor has been rumoured for a long time and the FT-1 clearly could be it.
