RACERS is a Japanese magazine usually dealing with racing motorcycles. Through the production of our issue on the Moto Elf project, we developed a close relationship with a legendary racing car designer André de Cortanze, who developed the initial concept and was the project leader of innovative motorcycles from France. Then, de Cortanze asked us to make another issue about the Toyota GT-One, which he drew the design concept and directed the car's development and racing activities. He said, “I ask you to publish a book on GT-One because the car has a special place in my heart among many race cars I've designed and built.” Thus, his words became the immediate trigger of this publication. All interviews, writings, and production were done by the hands of Japanese staff. We really hope you to enjoy this special issue on the GT-One, which is the only Toyota racing car with no Japanese engineer involved in its development.
