Toyota FT-1 Concept shows its new graphite exterior paint at Pebble Beach [w/video]

Article by Christian A., on August 14, 2014

Toyota introduced the FT-1 Concept back in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Everyone was speechless by its impressive design and by the fact that this could the Supra successor we were waiting for. Today, the FT-1 Concept arrived at Pebble Beach and showed a new graphite exterior paint. The result is jaw-dropping and we are already drooling at this vehicle.

It definitely looks much better than the red version. In addition, it comes with saddle-colored leather interior. The new version of the FT-1 Concept was unveiled at the Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival gala held on California’s Monterey Peninsula.

For those who don’t know, the FT-1 Concept shows the new direction of Toyota Global Design and its curved exterior builds on Toyota’s sports coupe heritage dating back to the 2000GT, Celica, Supra, MR-2 and Scion FR-S.

The bad news is that Toyota didn’t announce any production plans yet, but we suspect that this vehicle will be produced. Still, if you want to drive it you have to know that the concept is available in the Gran Turismo 6 racing simulator, together with racing version called FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo.

“From the start of the FT-1 project, we wanted the driver to have a feeling of flow while at the wheel – to be able to focus on the road and nothing else,” said Sellene Lee, the Calty creative designer who proposed both color concepts. “In the color studio we help create the atmosphere of the vehicle, and our aim was to ensure everything supported the driver through efficient choices. The saddle leather maintains that same ‘in the zone’ driving intention, while bringing in a more premium feeling.”
