The Sports Coupe We All Deserve
Toyota 2000GT is Toyota’s most iconic sports coupe. Evidently, this car was a revelation for the brand and for all Japanese automakers, really. Also, today they’re worth around $1 million at auction.
Toyota 2000GT Background
The Toyota 2000GT is a limited-production, front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, two-seat, hardtop coupé grand tourer designed by Toyota in collaboration with Yamaha. First displayed to the public at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1965, the 2000GT was manufactured under contract by Yamaha between 1967 and 1970.
What you see here is a modern interpretation of the model that I’d love to see made in real life. Nirmit Soni is the person behind this design concept. Also, he was aided by Sandeep Dasari and Vitali Enes and Constantin Stein to create one of the most stunning concepts I’ve seen in a while.
The goal of this Toyota 2000GT recreation was to create the design and pay homage to the original car while reimagining it for the modern age. I have to say, I think they pulled it off. Evidently, This is a stunning machine unlike any other.
Apparently, the car features camera mirrors, pop-out door handles, carbon fiber wheels, an active rear spoiler, and a roll cage. Also, as Carscoops notes, hypothetically speaking, this is a truly impressive machine and a serious sports car. It’s a machine that Toyota should consider making in the near future.
Apparently, the post This Is What Toyota’s Iconic 2000GT Would Look Like in the 21st Century appeared first on Supercars.net.
