For the Gran Turismo PS3 racing game, Toyota's designers in California have created a pure-bred racing version of the recently unveiled FT-1 concept car.

Toyota's original intention was for the FT-1 to appeal to die-hard car enthusiasts, so it has been a natural progression for it to develop the concept to deliver an authentic racetrack experience for die-hard Gran Turismo fans.

The FT-1's basic shape and architecture lend themselves to the addition of extra cooling and downforce elements to develop the car into its Vision guise, using a design process CALTY dubs "function sculpting". The designers studied real-world race tracks and race cars and applied their research to the styling exercise, delivering a car that broadcasts raw power and performance in its pure, function driven appearance.

Details include wider wheelarches to accommodate the larger tires needed for extreme grip; enlarged air intakes for increased cooling; and a larger rear wing and front Canard fins to generate greater downforce. There's also a bigger rear diffuser housing multiple fins, set further back to create a cleaner airflow.

In essence, every detail has been addressed to make the FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo look and feel the way it performs to create the sensation of a real race.

The FT-1 Vision Gran Turismo will be available for Gran Turismo 6 gamers from September.
