The latest model to be revealed as part of the Vision Gran Turismo project - part of celebrations for the franchise's 15th anniversary - the racing FT-1 is an evolution of the concept car revealed at the Detroit motor show earlier this year.
Inspired by classic Toyota designs including the Supra, the Future Toyota 1 concept is powered by a conventional combustion engine with no hybrid elements. Officials wouldn't be drawn on specifics when the car was unveiled, only saying it was "high output".
Modifications over the standard FT-1 for this racing version include wider wheel arches with larger tyres, larger air intakes for better cooling, a new fixed rear wing and more aerodynamic bodywork for greater downforce. A new rear diffuser can also be seen.
Joining the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo is a new real-world version of the FT-1, which swaps the original car's red paintwork for new graphite colouring. Toyota says the model's look has been inspired by superhero costumes.
Inside, Toyota has re-skinned the FT-1's cabin with new materials. Designer Selene Lee said: "We wanted the driver to have a feeling of flow while at the wheel - to be able to focus on the road and nothing else."
The two new versions of the FT-1 will be available to download in the Gran Turismo 6 game from September.
