A halo car is designed to raise the bar of what an automaker can create, with the intention of allowing those designs to influence everything else the company builds. That’s the case with the 2000GT, which represented the first collaboration between Toyota and Yamaha. It served as a coming-out party for Japanese car manufacturers when it debuted in 1965, demonstrating that they could compete with their European counterparts in style and performance and raising Toyota’s profile above its relatively vanilla production history up to that point.
Inspired by Jaguar and originally intended for Nissan, the Toyota 2000GT is now the most expensive and collectible Japanese-designed car in the world. It was famously driven by Aki in the 1967 Bond film You Only Die Twice, with custom modifications designed to accommodate Sean Connery’s large frame.
— Official description [1]

The 1969 Toyota 2000GT is a RWD sports car by Toyota featured in all Motorsport main series titles until Forza Motorsport 6, with the exception of Forza Motorsport 5. It also appears in Forza Horizon 2 as part of the Falken Tire Car Pack and was introduced to Forza Horizon 4 with Update 20.

Synopsis

The Toyota 2000GT (codenamed MF10) is a grand tourer co-developed by Yamaha as Toyota's halo car. A total of 337 units were produced from 1967 to 1970.[2]

The 2000GT dates back to the Nissan A550X, a prototype developed by Yamaha for Nissan to replace the Datsun 2000 Roadster with a coupé. Although Nissan backed out of the project, Yamaha built a functioning prototype in September 1964, and offered it to Toyota instead. Toyota accepted the offer and began co-development in December 1964.

Since the car's introduction, Yamaha was involved in many future Toyota cars such as the Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex, Toyota Supra RZ and Lexus LFA.

Platform

The exterior design is characterized by a low-slung body with a "double bubble" top and pop-up headlights. Under the body is an X-shaped backbone chassis that longitudinally comprise the engine at the front and differential at the rear.

To ensure ride quality and enable quick cornering, the 2000GT is fitted with unequal-length double-wishbone suspension and coil springs on both ends. It also features power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes and a dashboard-mounted handbrake.

Drivetrain

The 2000GT is driven by a five-speed manual powered by a triple-carbureted "Toyota 3M" engine that is designed with an aluminum hemispheral cylinder head by Yamaha and double overhead camshaft valvetrain.[3]

Limited to a two liter capacity, the engine delivers 150 hp (112 kW) and 130 ft·lb (176 N·m) of torque, putting it on par with contemporary Japanese sports cars like the Nissan Fairlady Z 432.
