Meet the H2+ Concept
What do you get when you combine the classic lines of a Toyota 2000GT with a Toyota Yaris and an A80 Toyota Supra? You get the stunningly beautiful Toyota H2+ Concept. A car dreamed up by designer David Gallego, his creation takes inspiration from a number of old and new Toyota cars and adds an element of supercar. The end result is something that we wish would become a real thing, as it is simply too stunning not to. Gallego says that " this project does not pretend to be a revival, it is just a personal interpretation of possible market demand."
Further inspiration for this car was drawn from the human form, the sleekness of a cheetah, and the sharp lines of a Katana sword. The H2+ is an interesting play on modern and old, and we love the fact that the front end draws heavily on the current-generation Toyota Yaris, which isn't exactly a desirable car for most. Ties to the 2000GT are also clearly visible in the way the driver and passengers of the car sit way back, almost directly over the rear axle. The whole thing looks like a Japanese-inspired Ford GT, to be honest. That's not a bad thing at all.
There are a number of interesting little design quirks that really bring this car to life, such as the three-person seating layout, which even has a relaxed mode for two people, where the back seat passenger gets a ton of legroom. We also love the wheel design which was inspired by traditional origami creations, as well as the internal workings of a wristwatch. Possibly our favorite feature is the trunk which is located in the fold-up front fender. The rear end reminds us of the Lexus LFA. Gallego doesn't give much detail as to what would power this beast, but he does state that it would be a "sportive electric berline with three seats". We'll have ten.
