This is getting ridiculous. If you thought prices on J-tin have been skyrocketing before, you ain’t seen nothing yet. A 1967 Toyota 2000GT, the bluest of the Japanese blue chip classics, has sold for $4.1 million. That price obliterates the previous record of $1.15 million set in 2013. A possible key? This particular 2000GT, though modified with RS-Watanabe racing wheels, has fewer than 2,500 miles on the odometer.
Luckily, only the suspension and wheels appear to have been modified. Those are easily reversible to stock if one wishes, and that could probably tack on a few more hundred thousand onto the price. It is an mind-boggling price that sets new standards for Nihon steel. See the auction here.
