Upcoming: Jay Leno Gets Some Time With Toyota FT-1 Concept




Quote:
Today we anticipate the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage to feature the all-new Toyota FT-1 Concept with Toyota’s Calty Design Research by the looks of the latest images on his Instagram feed. Jay Leno is sure to be an instant fan of the Toyota FT-1 as it probably remind him of the Japanese sports cars that start it all, such as the Toyota 2000GT and Supra from the brand just to name a couple.

The Toyota FT-1 has surely sparked interest in what is to come from Toyota in the form of a new sports car along with the over-all new-found inspiration in other Japanese brands to bring affordable sport to the market. We will await the Jay Leno’s Garage episode featuring the Toyota FT-1 hopefully within the next week or so. Be sure to check back for our post with the exclusive video!

^Probably 50/50. I recall Nissan let him drove the IDx FreeFlow concept, but Ford didn't let him take the pre-production V8 GT Mustang out for a spin.

Now I wonder if Jay Leno has an MKIV supra of his own, he seems like the type of guy that would have one.

I don't see why they wouldn't let him drive it. any feedback from a guy like Jay would help them improve it.

Well I guess they don't want to be responsible if anything happen to him, and or if he damages it.

Ford excuse was it was a pre-production Mustang and doesn't meet safely standards.
