DETROIT — Video game players will get a chance to try out a virtual version of Toyota’s new concept sports car that was unveiled in Detroit as a symbol of the automaker’s design future, the company said Monday.
The Japanese automaker took the wraps off the FT-1 during press previews at the North American International Auto Show. Toyota said the “FT” in the red, rear-wheel-drive FT-1 stands for “Future Toyota” and the number represents “the ultimate.”
Technical details of the vehicle aren’t being released, but it’s billed as a powerhouse. The prototype’s engine is in the front, with a window in the hood to showcase what’s underneath.
