Toyota 2000GT Auction Sale Price Record

$1.15 Million of Import Respect

Sep 10, 2013

An iconic Toyota 2000GT recently set the record for the auction sale price of a production Japanese import. RM Auctions dropped the hammer at a staggering $1.15 million for the sleek Toyota coupe. Perhaps best known for its role in the ’67 James Bond film, You Only Live Twice, the 2000GT features a Yamaha-developed. 2.0L straight-six rated at 150 hp, a lightweight chassis, and plenty of wow factor.

Being such an expensive car in 1967 (around $7,200 compared with such classics as the Jaguar E-Type at $5,600 and the Porsche 911 at $6,200) the 2000GT never got the collector car respect of the European marques. Despite being much more rare than the across-the-pond offerings with only 351 documented examples (62 lefthand drive USA models), this Rising Sun classic has lagged behind in the collector market. We like the upward trend on pricing and would love to see early Coronas going for big bucks in the near future.

Less is more. Keep it simple. Go for an OEM look. Ice Sorsongsermkul isn't hearing any of that. In fact, he's gone completely the opposite direction with his RX-7, with a spec list that reads like a "who's who" of the tuning industry.
