We’re talking about the all new Toyota FT-1 concept that was just showcased at the Detroit Motor Show. Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital is one of reasons why the FT-1 design actually became a reality.

Product Manger of SCEA Ken Chan, recently spoke on the latest FT-1 concept through the U.S. PlayStation Blog.

“Calty Design Research has worked with Toyota over the last 40 years, concepting some of the manufacturer’s most cutting-edge vehicles, including the FT-1. As part of the design process, Calty approached Polyphony and asked the prestigious video game studio to recreate the concept digitally as part of the design studio’s pitch to Toyota executives. Watching the concept car in the Gran Turismo game engine helped Toyota make the decision to build the concept model.”

Kevin Hunter, President of Calty Design Research made comment stating the following.

“Thanks to the amazing capability of the Gran Turismo game engine, gamers can enjoy a very real simulation piloting the ultra-high performance FT-1 on the tracks it was designed to master.”
