Toyota Showcases New FT-1 Concept Dressed in Graphite (video)

Toyota is seriously teasing us with their ever-changing FT-1 concept. So back in January, they first unveiled the FT-1 concept at the Detroit Auto Show and revealed two new versions at the Pebble Beach event with still no word on when we’ll see a production version. Everyone fell head over hells over the FT-1 concept dressed in its eye-catching red livery back in January, but the Japanese automaker decided to turn up the design a bit and showed off a graphite version that replaces that bright red paint job and its red and black interior. The new version provides a more refined look with its graphite exterior combined with a tan leather interior with exposed metal elements.

Both versions of the roar-going FT-1 concept will actually be playable in the Gran Turismo 6 video game. And to commemorate the new versions, Toyota also revealed a new virtual racing version called the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo that looks lil the OG concept that was prepared for Japan’s Super GT series, but it’s been retuned for racing and features wider fenders, a more extreme aero kit and more.
