Toyota has revealed few days ago its FT-1 Sports Car Concept with revised premium interior treatment inspired by modern superhero movies.
The FT-1’s interior designers drew their motivation from contemporary superhero films, particularly their use of high-tech performance materials for the character’s costumes, as opposed to the bright tights and garish colours sported by more traditional characters.
The new interior treatments with saddle tan leather elements give a more sophisticated feel.
The latest concept coupe features new graphite paintwork in place of the vibrant red featured on the original concept, first seen at this year’s Detroit motor show.
To achieve the FT-1’s advanced-looking, intricately detailed interior, Toyota’s CALTY design team in California compared leather thicknesses, grain sizes and textures to find the perfect combination.
Raised metal mesh provides ventilation for the seats, while also lending a more textural, bold effect that compliments the cabin’s metal accents. An embossed pattern on the instrument panel leather creates a 3-D, technical look.
Selene Lee, a CALTY designer, said: “From the start of the FT-1 project, 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.
