Most 1967 Toyotas have long since ascended to that great car yard in the sky, but this very special 2000GT sports car recently sold at auction in the USA for more than a million dollars.

Most 1967 Toyotas have long since ascended to that great car yard in the sky, but this very special 2000GT sports car recently sold at auction in the USA for more than a million dollars.

One of only 351 built, the Toyota 2000GT is a hugely significant model for the Japanese maker. Known as ‘Japan’s E-Type’, it caused jaws to drop around the automotive world when first shown.

The sleek two seater is powered by a 2.0-litre, in-line six, claimed to propel it to 220km/h, and a non-production convertible version starred alongside Sean Connery’s James Bond in 1967’s ‘You Only Live Twice.’
