2010 Toyota FT-86 Concept

2010 Toyota FT-86 Concept
The FT-86 ('86' pronounced 'hachi roku'), a compact rear-wheel-drive sports car, provides driving joy and excitement.

* Compact design gives driver greater control, while body's lightness and low center of gravity allow racecar-like handling
* Both power and environmental performance provided by 2-liter boxer engine and light body
* Flash Red body color contains hint of blue; interior expresses modern feel wîth minimal coverage of the highly refined structural components evoking enthusiasm for cruising

The Toyota FT-86 Concept has a compact feeling that is easy for the driver to handle while able to accommodate up to four occupants. In addition to being light and having a low center of gravity, the Toyota FT-86 Concept boasts the handling of a racing car. Part of this sensation is due to its 6-speed manual transmission and ADVICS brakes.

The stylish concept captures the heart wîth the 'functional utility' of its highly-refined body. It is the creation of Toyota Europe Design Development known as ED2, which has established body lines that take into consideration a low center of gravity and aerodynamics. The interior is distinctive, featuring an instrument panel wîth a gray and white base, gauges wîth red neon lights and digital displays, and a navigation system. In addition, a zipper that evokes an image of interior lapping wîth minimal covering of a highly-refined body presents a striking display.

The Toyota FT-86 Concept is neither an electric vehicle nor a hybrid vehicle, but is a sports model wîth a gasoline engine developed to convey the essential appeal of automobiles in a new era. It is a must-see concept car that expresses TMC's desire to once again create a Toyota sports car.

A Small FR Sports Concept Vehicle that Combines Environmental Performance and the Joy of Driving

2010 Toyota FT-86 Concept
TMC seeks to develop the ultimate earth-conscious environmentally-considerate vehicle wîth a focus on hybrid technologies without losing sight of the appeal of cars themselves or the joy of driving.

Over the past several years, the need has been rising for motor vehicles that take into consideration global warming and other environmental issues, while there has also been concern that there have been too few new sports cars that make the heart beat faster and that the time is right for a new generation of sports cars. In response to these needs, TMC has developed the Toyota FT-86 Concept, a sports car equipped wîth a 2,000cc, horizontally opposed, four-cylinder, naturally-aspirated gasoline engine that evokes the joy of driving a car and the pleasure of vehicle ownership.

As the name 'Future Toyota 86 Concept' implies, the Toyota FT-86 Concept, which will be exhibited at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, is a new 86 Toyota wîth a flash red finish. It is a compact, rear-wheel drive sports concept car that embodies speed and the excitement of driving that give cars their appeal as well as environmental performance.
