VIDEO: The only running Toyota 2000GT in the UK

With just 351 built, the Toyota 2000GT is a rare car. According to Toyota UK, this is the only roadworthy one in the country. They’re calling it The Toyota that Lived Twice, a nod to the 2000GT’s starring role in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice and the fact that the owners found a bullet hole in the door during restoration.

“It would have hit the driver somewhere in the upper thigh,” says Jane Weitzmann, who owns the car — along with a classic Land Cruiser and Sports 800 — with her husband. “So that accounted for the damage that had obviously been done to the front end at some point.” Perhaps the 2000GT does make for a proper spy car after all!

    This particular car is a proper twin cam MF10, not one of the nine single cam MF12Ls.

    It’s part of the JHW Classics stable: http://www.jhwclassics.com/

    I’m pretty sure I saw a white Toyota 2000GT in Classic and Sportscar Magazine. I think it’s either belongs to or being cared by JD Classics. So this isn’t the only raodworthy 2000GT in UK I think.
