Toyota's Kikai concept aims to turn heads in Tokyo

It seems that Toyota plans to turn heads at this year's Tokyo Motor Show by displaying the quirky Kikai concept.

While we find ways on how to describe the Kikai concept, Toyota said it was designed to “explore and emphasize the fundamental appeal of machines.” From the looks of it, the Kikai concept combined the design language of a hot rod and a buggy. Dimension-wise, the concept measures 3400mm long, 1800mm wide and 1550mm tall with a wheelbase of 2450mm.

In case you're wondering, the Kikai concept can sit three occupants in a triangular layout where the driver sits up front in the center. It also has a three-spoke steering wheel along with four round dials.

Toyota has yet to release the powertrain details of its quirky Kikai concept.
