Toyota 2000GT

My daughters and I had fun putting together a 1:32 replica plastic model by Aoshima Models of the iconic Toyota 2000GT the other day.

Did you know that only 351 examples of this beauty were ever made? It was the result of a collaboration with Yamaha, who hand built this timeless classic at their Iwata factory.

The 2000GT is probably most famous for being in the 1967 James Bond movie, 'You Only Live Twice'.

Vintage and classic car auction house, Bring a Trailer, in the US has recently listed a 1968

2000GT in absolute pristine condition for auction. With only two days to go the highest bid is already an eye-watering 652,000 USD!
