Auction Block: 1967 Toyota 2000GT

There are only said to be 260 1967 Toyota 2000GTs still in existence, and one of those rare cars will be auctioned off at RM Sotheby’s in January.

It’s considered to be the original Japanese supercar, and it was actually designed by Yamaha. The car uses an inline six-cylinder engine that has had new double overhead camshafts installed, allowing it to push out 150 brake horsepower and hit a respectable 135 mph. It also helps that the car weighed just 2,400 pounds. It’s an under appreciated car, due to its original price point being $1000 more than the Jaguar E-Type and Porsche 911 — a tough pill to swallow for a car from a relatively unknown manufacturer in the U.S. But because of its limited production compared to the many thousand 911s and E-types, the 2000GT is one of the most coveted 1960s sports cars ever.
