Since the reveal of the Toyota FT-1 concept car, people have been buzzing about this sports car and what it could mean for the future of our new Toyota near Orlando. With its sleek, sporty and aggressive design, many people are itching to get their hands on it! However, seeing as this new Toyota near Orlando is just a concept, there’s not much of a chance you’ll get to experience this car in person – unless you’re Jay Leno!
Jay Leno praises the new Toyota FT-1 concept car
Many people may know Jay Leno as the host of The Tonight Show, but he’s also an extreme car collector and even has his own Web TV show dedicated to the amazing cars he has in his garage! As a car fanatic, it’s no wonder the Toyota FT-1 caught Jay Leno’s attention! He invited the chief designers of this new Toyota and the only existing Toyota FT-1 to his garage to give his viewers an inside look at this amazing sports car! If you don’t watch the show, here’s what you missed:
- Jay Leno explained how the Toyota FT-1 is exactly what drivers have been waiting for, as everyone misses the Toyota sports cars of the pasts, such as the Toyota Supra and Toyota 2000GT!
- This celebrity talk show host swooned over the style of this new Toyota near Orlando, which merges influences from Italian and Japanese design. He even mentioned he liked it better than the Lexus LFA supercar!
- The designers, who actually made this concept car in Newport Beach, California, mentioned the need for an emotional factor in the Toyota lineup and the Toyota FT-1 may just be the answer! Although we have the Scion FR-S near Orlando, which it took some of its inspiration from, there’s always room for a supercar!
- They also walked Jay Leno through some of the stylish and functional details in this new Toyota, such a the air intakes for air flow management, a glass hood that shows off the engine and a rear wing that goes up or down and integrates into the car!
Should this new Toyota sports car join the Toyota lineup?
At the end of the episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, he talked about how he loves the Toyota Prius and Toyota Corolla near Orlando, but called upon Toyota to put this new Toyota sports car into production to give the lineup a little more oomph! We couldn’t agree more, as we can’t seem to get enough of the Toyota FT-1! Although there would probably many challenges ahead to put this sports car into production, we think it would make a great addition to our Toyota dealership near Orlando!
