Toyota FT-86 Concept to be displayed at Auto Expo?
Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
Sources tell us Toyota might display the FT-86 along with 13 others cars at the Auto Expo next month. The FT-86 is inspired by the Corolla-based AE86 sports coupe of the '80s. The concept was designed by Toyota's ED2 styling studio in France and bears a close resemblance to the FT-HS concept exhibited at the Detroit Auto Show few years back.
The FT-86 could be powered by a Subaru-derived 2.0-liter engine sending 200+hp power to the rear wheels. Toyota could price it around USD 25-30k, so don't expect the FT-86 CBU to come at less that 25 lakh rupees in India, if Toyota sanctions it.
