Great looking car or concept?

I'm a big fan! About time Toyota got in to the top end car game!

I disagree with all the hate on the LFA though, I like the design of that car.

It would have been awesome if it was a running concept like the Nissan IDx (New 510) they had on.

Its a little bit big for my liking. Not to mention, judging by the distinct lack of a clutch in the concept car, they don't even have it in a proper manual. I know autos are supposed to be faster these days but how did toyota's motives change so quickly? from driver feel and connectivity to both the car and the road with the GT86, to now being all about automatic shifting and huge speeds in the FT1. Like, no doubt the body of it looks amazing but it really doesn't impress me in terms of the driveline.
I don't know, i suppose we'll find out if it's ever released ;)
Whats more exciting to me is the entry-level gt86 with a 1.5 hybrid engine, rwd and with a 6-speed manual that toyota are talking about! Might be the 'new ke corolla' we were all hoping for in the gt86 haha ;)
