USA First it was the Toyota Supra in the mid and then after canning the and the MR2 Spyder, Toyota is now without a sports car.

It builds safe, and user-friendly vehicles, and is the #1 car maker, taking the throne General Motors.

But without a halo car, something the Nissan GT-R, or the Mazda the company has very little to on its hugely expensive Formula 1

Most car makers who participate in the 1 World Championship use their credentials to improve/advertise their cars (Honda, Ferrari, and BMW are examples), but Toyota has done little of this.

The FT-HS sports concept appeared at the Detroit Motor Show, and took a deep breath. Is finally going to cash in on its hundred million dollar in Formula 1?

Though very much a car, with a conceptual that will disgust as people as it will delight, explains the new FT-HS concept a potent hybrid powertrain essential sports car fundamentals, and was a undertaking of Calty (Toyota’s American-based research and design located in Newport Beach, and Toyota’s California-based Advanced Strategy Group.

Many performance cars generate 300km/h top speeds either the sheer brute of a large V8 or often forced induction, as a supercharger or a turbocharger.

This concept, however, is different it uses a 3.5-litre V6 engine with an electric hybrid to boost performance. Toyota the hybrid drive from the GS450h (reviewed by the Editor, here ) and dropped the hybrid into a super light-weight shell, added big wheels for traction, and designed the exterior to be for high speed stability.

expects to extract some from the hybrid V6 power and the company has acknowledged that is a gap in its product range that to be filled by a high performance and affordable sports car. A hybrid Supra could be in the offing,and this concept be the germination of such a project.

The FT-HS, which can seat passengers in a 2+2 coupe layout and from zero to 100km/h in the 4.0 range according to Toyota. very fast, and especially so for the conservative Toyota Motor

Incorporating a hybrid capability maintaining sports car essentials, as a sleek profile, lightweight materials and an advanced high-output for revolutionary acceleration and optimal rumours suggest that may be seriously considering the new design for a model of the mid-term future.

explains that the FT-HS have ultra-low fuel and that it will appeal to an buyer who grew up eco-conscious and technology as a necessity, not a luxury. It that at a mid-priced market FT-HS would be a true exotic with 21st performance.

The angular design of the new car give long-time Toyota something to cheer about, the car an almost minimalist look and which was led by Calty designer, Shen. From a design argues Toyota, the theme of the achieves sleek, taut in its exterior features — in the doors and body style.

The front and rear have sculpted to remove mass key functional components, and free geometrics define the integration of surfaces and contrasting hard-edge corners which promote airflow and reduce turbulence just like an F1 car.

The has a distinctive scooped-out section to reduce aerodynamic drag and head room at the key areas, and the concept car is made from fibre Kevlar, and the roof so that the roof panel and window pivot fluidly in a motion to stow in the rear space. Exotic and convertible.

At the the tail lamp unit the entire rear, and has an integrated spoiler, while light-emitting (LED) clusters are located in the and the front quarter panels for efficiency and decreased heat The rear also features a fibre diffuser with exhausts and carbon fibre To call the FT-HS lightweight is a understatement.

The driver-oriented interior was by Calty designer William and exudes sleekness, technology and says Toyota. The lean, look is achieved with cross-car architecture and high-tech such as carbon fibre and while the delta-wing driver’s pod many useful functions a lightweight structural unit, so all of the important functions and details are almost exclusively to the driver.

For example, explains Toyota, sensors surround the driver and act as guides for finger controls travelling at high speeds, is augmented by an integrated instrument that surrounds the driver, an enclosed pod effect, while flow seamlessly into the and surrounding interior.

It has been by Toyota that the seating is optimised for four occupants, but can coverts to a 2-seater when the retracts.

Representing the first in Toyota’s road back to the car fold, this concept car may evolve into the 2010 Supra, where twin are replaced by the instantaneous hybrid hit, whichprovides a huge boost as the Ed’s review of the GS450h suggests.
