    Leno said having the FT-1 exterior plus LFA motor would be the DREAM car. x1000000 :yes:
    I couldn't agree more.

    I love the message at the end to get Toyota to build the car. I hope influential guys like Leno with his fan base keep pushing that agenda and I hope Toyota is listening.

    Favorite part was definitely the beginning clip from behind the scenes inside CALTY.

    Bet he ends up adding the new badboy to his garage once it comes out.

    Through out the video I got the impression that Jay Leno maybe had some insight that it may be build. Which is probably why he was asking several questions asking if certain things about the vehicle could make production. Plus at the end he ask if this is the only one there is? Alex Shen's response was 'Currently, yes'

    The "currently yes" was probably referring to the fact that the graphite FT-1 was going to be joining the red one.

    But I wouldn't be surprised if there's special insights they give him off-camera especially if he asked. He gave Toyota free publicity afterall.

    Sounds like back then they had already ordered the second car. Very cool.

    Is there only one red and one graphite concept that they are shipping everywhere? Didn't it show up in several different countries and the whole US show circuit?

    At the 9:50 mark, Alex said "we imagine the hatch will open in the glass only..."
