So when we talk about the character as James Bond, played by the late Sean Connery, whose figure is always familiar with the sophisticated sports cars that always accompany him in every action. Maybe the 007 secret agent fans only know the exotic and iconic British car named Aston Martin DB5 which was driven by the late Sean Connery when he played James Bond.

Did You know, apart from those British sports cars, it turns out that there is another car that is no less cool and iconic called the Toyota 2000GT which was used by him when acting as James Bond in the 1967 movie-titled 'You Only Live Twice'.

As we already know, this car is the first supercar made by the Japanese automotive giant, Toyota in 1967, in which the creation process also involved Yamaha, another Japanese automotive manufacturer. This car can be said to be a revolutionary car from a Japanese manufacturer, from a manufacturer that is known for its less attractive products, but then with the presence of this figure it can prove that the Japanese can also make a sports car that can match their European and American rivals.

A total of 351 units in the form of a sports coupe were sold. This happened because the price was very expensive, exceeding the price of the Porsche and Jaguar at that time. Mostly sold in red and white. This Toyota 2000GT car is known to be driven by a 3M-coded engine, with a capacity of 1,988 cc, 6 cylinder in line, DOHC which is taken from the Toyota Crown. This engine was modified by Yamaha to use 3 2-barrel Mikuni-Solex 40 PHH carburetors and mated to a 5-speed manual transmission system.

But the legendary Toyota 2000GT that James Bond rode is so iconic that Daniel Craig, the current James Bond actor, admits that the car is his favorite. What makes it so special is that the Toyota 2000GT Roadster used by the Brit's 007 secret agent only produced two units.
So the Toyota 2000GT Roadster model was never mass-produced by the Japanese automotive giant and was only made specifically for the purposes of this movie. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ]
