On the other hand, the FT-1’s inside follows the outside’s functional aspirations with dedicated track focus with soft-touch areas only in the spots where the body touches.

Otherwise, it’s a minimalist approach with carbon fiber and composite materials galore, a Formula One-inspired steering wheel and a unique head-up display.

The concept’s color head-up display is shown on a piece of glass in front of the steering wheel instead of the typical way of projecting on the windshield.
