The Toyota FT-1 concept unveiled at this week’s Detroit Motor Show was a spectacular piece of design that managed to be simultaneously beautiful and bonkers.
“It’s a sexy halo sports car, period,” explained Kevin Hunter, head of CALTY, the California Toyota design arm tasked with creating the FT-1. Two things the Toyota RSC concept in the picture above is not. Not sexy, nor a halo sports car.
But the FT-1 was designed by CALTY way back in 2001. After the shock of the FT-1, we urgently felt the need to dive into Toyota’s concept back catalogue, where we discovered the RSC amongst many, many other gems.
So strap in and get ready for a gallery of Toyota’s wilder design study moments. Warning: contains absolutely no Priuses.
