Toyota’s Vision GT concept looks insane

It’s based on the stunning FT-1, sounds like a racecar and will be hitting a GT6 near you

Remember the Toyota FT-1? It was a proper surprise at this year's Detroit Motor Show; a high-end sportscar concept designed to show that Toyota was getting its mojo back. Good.

This then, is more proof that Toyota's mojo has indeed, enjoyed some cross-mojination, because it's a short, sharp teaser for an upcoming Gran Turismo 6 racer. Remember the Vision GT cars? This is Toyota's version.

It's only 30 seconds long, but the video is well worth a watch, if only to hear a lovely little racing engine. And yes, we get the whole ‘it's not real and it's just a game', but it was designed by Toyota's Calty Design and Research centre in California - the same bods who sketched out the FT-1 concept.

So there's some pedigree involved. And anyway, the Vision GT cars are entirely excellent. Especially the Mercedes, which actually scared us a little bit.

Make this now please, Toyota.

Two relatively affordable 600cc urban warriors claim to be the best at their game. Time for them to hit the road and settle their differences
