Toyota to Launch New FT-Open Concept at Geneva

Geneva is to see the debut of the Toyota FT-86 Open Concept next week, a recent report has uncovered. The company said that the FT-86 Open Concept is a prototype that has been designed so that the public's reaction could be estimated. The concept would be unleashed at the Geneva Motor Show.

The show car has a bright white exterior so that it could successfully have maximum impact. In contrast, the car has a navy blue canvas roof, the company told. The car has a multi-layered canvas hood, which incorporates a glass rear window.

The same, as per the findings, can fold behind the fixed rear seats, electronically. Also, what remains is the 2+2 seating layout. The new concept makes use of four-cylinder boxer engine, 197bhp 2.0-litre, from the coupe. It is being said that the coupe is the ruling Auto Express Performance Car of the Year.

"The GT 86 coupe was designed to be easily converted to a soft-top; the amount of engineering to add a cabrio to the line-up is not expected to be great", said Toyota.

The company added that in case the car gets approval, the six-speed manual along with auto boxes would be offered by it.
