Toyota Motor Sales, USA and Calty Design Research, a Toyota design studio, have unveiled student-designed vehicle concepts as part of the Bridge Project, a Toyota-sponsored program for the College for Creative Studies. Calty designs vehicle concepts for Toyota, Lexus and Scion aimed at the North American market and is credited with Toyota F3R, Scion FUSE, and t2B, Toyota FT-SX, and the Lexus LF-C sports coupe.
