Behold: the rather gorgeous Toyota 2000GT Roadster – a mould-breaking joint venture between Yamaha and Toyota inspired by the Jaguar E-type. The car debuted in 1965 and was built from 1967 to 1970.

The rarest of Japanese racers (and James Bond’s car in You Only Live Twice (H/T: Andrew), only 351 were ever made. Surviving models, like the Concours restoration above, change hands for €850,000+.

You may even have built your own back in the day.
