Developed and built jointly by Yamaha Motor and Toyota Motor Corporation, the TOYOTA 2000GT made its debut in the 1965 Tokyo Motor Show as a showcase of Japan's first high-performance sportscar.

Built on a sturdy X-backbone frame, the 2000GT's 4-wheel independent suspension had double-wishbones front and back. The engine, a 1988cc DOHC 6-cylinder with 3 Solex carburetors, produced 150 horsepower. This could propel the car to a top speed of over 220km/h.

Other features included a close-ratio 5-speed transmission, limited slip differential, and Japan's first 4-wheel disc brakes with vacuum booster.

Today these cars are extremely rare (note build nuber above) and would make a great investment if you could find one (and afford one).
