Toyota FT-1 Concept (Graphite)

Toyota unveiled a 2nd FT-1 Sports Car Concept that is dressed in different exterior and interior color.  Thought to be available only on the Sony PlayStation Grand Turismo game, the 1st FT-1 Concept was surprisingly brought into reality, and unveiled back in January at the NAIAS.

While the 1st FT-1 Sports Concept looked stunningly in red, the 2nd FT-1 Concept looks more sophisticated and classy in graphite.

Interior, the red FT-1 went together with black interior, the 2nd FT-1 leaves the gorgeous natural beige color of the leather supple seats dominate the interior color.

Toyota didn’t say whether the FT-1 Concept will enter production or not, but unveiling the 2nd concept without any major changes along with recent cooperation between BMW and Toyota in developing a new midsize sports coupe, the FT-1 Concept could translate into something as exciting and surprising as how it was unveiled, or inspire the next Supra.

This 2nd FT-1 Concept will join the 1st FT-1 Concept in the virtual world of Gran Turismo 6, to be available for download in September.
