Most of this Toyota concept’s exterior body is made out of lightweight and durable materials including its rear wing, front splitter and rear diffuser, wide front and rear bumpers,  and its door mirror housings. And both its windows and windscreen are made of plastic. These materials are used to make the vehicle lighter so it can use all its horsepower and reach its maximum speed. It’s also equipped with BBS racing wheels and Michelin racing tries to keep it firmly planted on the ground when its making turns at high speeds.
