The 1967 Toyota 2000GT is an absolutely stunning car, period. RM Auctions sold this beauty for $1,155,000 million at auction last month.
“I believe it to be a double highest price ever achieved, both for a Toyota production car and for any Asian car,” he wrote in an e-mail to the New York Times, David Kinney, publisher of Hagerty’s price guide. “I have looked for anything higher and have been unable to find it.”
Developed in partnership with Yamaha, this two-passenger coupe has a two-liter inline six-cylinder engine with a cast-iron block and double overhead cams, producing 150 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and a top speed of over 135 mph. Aptly described as “the best sports car you’ve never heard of” RM Auctions claims Toyota built 351 of the curvaceous little sports cars from 1967 to 1970.
