About the TOYOTA FT-1 Vision Gran TurismoFollowing the excitement of the FT-1 release in the Gran Turismo 6 game, the CALTY design team from Toyota’s North American Design branch has taken their dream one step further in creating the ultimate racecar, the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo.
The designers’ original intention in designing the FT-1 was to unabashedly appeal to the die hard car enthusiasts. In the same way, the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo is designed for die-hard Gran Turismo fans. The designers focused on keeping the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo authentic for the virtual racetracks of the game, to maximize their driving pleasure.
Because the bones and architecture of the FT-1 already lend itself to cooling and down force through “function-sculpting,” the vision version just needed to be enhanced as a pure racing car. The designers closely studied racetracks and racecars, and applied their research into the styling. A deep sense of rawness is evident in the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo, due to its purely function-driven design aesthetics. The fenders and tires are wider for extreme grip on the track. The enlarged air intakes provide increased cooling, and a larger rear wing and additional front canards have been added for even more down force. The rear diffuser has been enlarged with multiple vertical fins, and is moved further back for cleaner airflow.
The FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo looks and feels the way it performs, so the driver can speed through the racetracks with the same sensation and thrill of real racing.
