It can’t be said that Toyota doesn’t know how to get media exposure mileage out of its concepts: here’s January’s FT-1 coupe, again… but now in ‘graphite grey’.

This is of course the same trick that luxury offshoot Lexus pulled with its stunning LF-LC concept, appearing first in red and then again in blue.

We’ll pay it, though, just as we did with the Lexus. Because, let’s be honest. The FT-1 looks even better now than it did in red, and that was plenty hot in its own right.

But, wait, there’s another - and this one’s a lot more lairy. Say hello to the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo, Toyota’s entry in Sony’s growing Vision Gran Turismo racing simulator.

Its coming was hinted at back in December with a stylised teaser illustration, and a new video and gallery released today reveals the racing FT-1 in detail for the first time.

Decked out in an all-black finish, the modified FT-1 is shown with a track-specific kit that includes wider vented wheel arches and a huge racing wing above an equally gargantuan diffuser.

Developed as part of the ongoing Vision Gran Turismo project, the racing FT-1 will be offered as downloadable content alongside concepts from Mercedes, Subaru, Nissan, Subaru, Honda, stablemate Lexus and even Aston Martin.

Will we ever see the FT-1 in production, with a racing version joining it later?

That remains to be seen, although no shortage of reports and rumours have suggested the FT-1 is a preview of the new sports car that Toyota is building with BMW.

A new Supra? One can only hope.
