Forgotten Concept: 2004 Toyota Motor Triathlon Race Car Concept
Tech went much further, however, than this typical-of-the-times alternative powertrain. The coolest part of the MTRC was the driver's visual interface: a virtual-reality-enhanced helmet (called "mixed reality") provided the driver with a Top Gun pilot's view of the road, complete with up-to-date info on road, traffic and vehicle diagnostics.
Toyota's debut for the MTRC was a chilly morning in Geneva in 2004, but any fan with a Playstation2 had the chance to drive the thing -- virtually. The concept was offered in Gran Turismo 4 as a fully drivable race car. Players couldn't buy the MTRC, however. It was available only after the user leveled up and won it after a series of races.
