The Perfect Car for Racers and Car Enthusiasts alike– The Toyota FT-1 Graphite
Published January 10, 2015
With Toyota looking to give a complete overhaul of the Supra franchise, it looks as though it is taking initial form feedback through the FT-1 Graphite (FT Standing for Future Toyota). The Toyota FT-1 Graphite is currently available for car and race fanatics alike to view and play through Gran Turismo 6.
Like the name implies, the FT-1 Graphite is just that in color. The Toyota FT-1 graphite bolsters a muscular design the really centers with a prominent coupe with an elongated hood. To boost top speeds Toyota has added an extensible and retractable wing to the back of the vehicle.
The interior of the car is simple, yet sleek with a premium leather design. With high speeds in mind the designers set out to elongate the A-pillars which increases cornering vision that makes it easier for the driver to see the obstacles around him/her. The gears are also positioned in a closely accessible manner giving the driver less to fidget around to find.
Driving and Performance:
In terms of performance, Toyota has said in press releases that they are trying to make a car that rivals the Aston Martin DP-100 which has a staggering 800 hp. With expected horse power that large and an already aerodynamic design we can expect this car to get from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds! Top speeds are expected to be around 200 mph. With the ability to rapidly accelerate and such a high max speed, we expect the car to be under 2,500 pounds (a common threshold for most cars with similar specs).
Toyota looks to be targeting high end Honda and Nissan owners with the FT-1 Graphite so we expect a top trim prices to range anywhere from $90,000 to $110,000.
Concluding, we see that the Toyota FT-1 Graphite may be a real home run for Toyota if the specs match up to the feel of the muscular/action-packed design. The car is otherwise the total package for race and car enthusiasts looking for performance and design!
