Toyota FT-86 Concept design first real photos revealed!
Toyota has released the first photos of the FT-86 Concept design in real life! The car is gorgeous and sexy in fresh red color. “Sports cars have to be red, but we wanted a new red,” said Tetsuya Tada, the chief engineer. “So we came up with shoujyouhi red, the traditional red color of a Japanese monkey’s backside”. Photos are taken outside showing both exterior and interior, of course this is just a concept! The headlights are awesome, nothing like those round things in artist design renders, the overall exterior and wheels look much the same as FT-HS concept released a year ago.
Toyota built the FT-86 Concept to re-energize the brand’s image and it seems to have done just that, with young auto enthusiasts and tuners the world over itching to get their hands on the production version of this entry-level rear-drive sports car. Company press releases have boasted about the car’s handling capabilities and now it seems Toyota is planning to build the car’s reputation in the best possible way, through motorsports!From press release:
