Toyota FT-86 Concept

TCM wants to develop the ultimate earth-conscious environmentally-considerate vehicle with a focus on hybrid technologies without losing sight of the appeal of cars themselves or the joy of driving. TCM has developed the FT-86 Concept, a sport car equipped with a 2.000cc horizontally opposed, 4-cylinder, naturally-aspirated gasoline engine that evokes the joy of driving a car and the pleasure of vehicle ownership. The model will be exposed at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. 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. Because it is light and because it has a low center of gravity, the FT-86 Concept boasts the handling of a racing car as well as a 6-speed manual transmission and ADVICS brakes. The interior is distinctive, featuring an instrument panel with a gray and white base, gauges with red neon lights and digital displays, and a navigation system. The FT-86 Concept it is not an electric car, not a hybrid vehicle, but it is a sports model with a gasoline engine developed to convey the essential appeal of automobiles in a new era.
