When Toyota announced their new concept model "FT-86" (FT stands for Future Toyota), the name rang a bell for many people since Toyota AE86, known as the "Hachi-Roku (eight-six)" was one of the most widely recognised car in Japan as the hero Takumi Fujiwara's vehicle in popular street racing manga Initial D.

FT-86 was unveiled as a "sport concept model" FT-86 Concept at Tokyo Motor Show 2009.

Pics after the cut!

"FT-86 Concept" is two-door four-seater, 4160mm long, 1260mm high. The overall width measures 1760mm, wheelbase 2570mm.

Looks kind of mean-eyed.

It's a four-seater but maybe more confortable for two.

The interior design will be sleek and minimal.

FT-86 will be featured in the oncoming PS3 title Gran Turismo 5.
