Video shows FT-86 II Concept in CGI-simulated action, likely for a new video game iteration.
Here's a video of the FT-86 II Concept put out by Polyphony Digital for the Gran Turismo 5 video game.
Back in 2009 the original FT-86 concept was prominently featured in the PlayStation3 video game. Now it shows the updated FT-86 II in action but, well, it isn't live action.
This video is obviously created by CGI (just check out the fake smoke on those drifts) and the end credits show the Gran Turismo video game logo.
And it feels like video gaming will be the only way one will ever get to drive this car. The FT-86 concept has been around a long time and the lack of details (as in what will be the power plant) and real material beyond the nice pictures of a stand-still model is getting a little tiring.
The rear-wheel drive FT-86 should debut soon, though. Likely, later this year or in early 2012.
But by then its introduction may just be underwhelming.
