Here's a video of the FT-86 II Concept put out by Polyphony Digital for the Gran Turismo 5 video game.
Back in 2009 the original FT-86 concept was prominently featured in the PlayStation3 video game. Now it shows the updated FT-86 II in action but, well, it isn't live action.
This video is obviously created by CGI (just check out the fake smoke on those drifts) and the end credits show the Gran Turismo video game logo.
And it feels like video gaming will be the only way one will ever get to drive this car. The FT-86 concept has been around a long time and the lack of details (as in what will be the power plant) and real material beyond the nice pictures of a stand-still model is getting a little tiring.
The rear-wheel drive FT-86 should debut soon, though. Likely, later this year or in early 2012.
But by then its introduction may just be underwhelming.
Since its jaw-dropping unveil at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, the "FT-86" next generation sports coupe has been a highly anticipated model. And in the press briefing of the March 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Toyota has announced the latest updated version of the car called the "FT-86 Concept II".
Following in the footsteps of the original "FT-86 Concept", the Toyota Motor Corporation and Gran Turismo have visualized a driving scene of the newly updated design. Witness for yourself the next generation sports coupe, currently being developed towards its commercial release.
