Toyota FT-1 Concept 2014 Review

Toyota has unveiled the stunning FT-1 sports car concept at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

FT-1 stands for “Future Toyota,” and the number “1” represents the ultimate. The concept draws inspiration from Calty’s more recent sports car concept work such as FT-HS (2007) and the Lexus LF-LC (2012). The FT-1’s audacious design represents the pinnacle of Calty’s 40th year of operation.

“Function-sculpting” design language yields curved, muscular, expressive body forms seemingly shaped by the wind. Inlets, ducting, and vents help reinforce its track–ready nature with elements of purposeful airflow management. The body’s athleticism is expressed with taut surfaces and dramatic fender forms. The cockpit’s wraparound windshield and side glass openings are a distinct nod to the design of the legendary Toyota 2000GT.

The interior is a focused, highly functional “place of business” that locates the driver at the controls behind an F1 inspired steering-wheel. The intimate, low slung cockpit has its A-pillars set far back to help optimize cornering vision and sensation of the cabin’s intimacy.
