In 1967, the Toyota 2000GT was a feat of its time. Production was limited to approximately 351 units, 62 of which were made as left-hand-drive models. At the time, a five-speed transmission, 150 horsepower, dual overhead cam, and a top speed of 135mph weren’t features you’d shake a stick at either. In light of the car’s extreme rarity, a model of the 2000GT was sold for $1.2 million dollars by Ontario-based RM Auctions — effectively earning it the title as the world’s most expensive car from an Asian brand. Enjoy photos of the car above, which some have referred to as Japan’s first ‘supercar.’
