A design and engineering icon, the Toyota 2000GT is the forefather of all Japanese supercars, the ancestor to which the Acura NSX, Nissan GT-R and Lexus LFA must pay homage. It's rare enough to find a 2000GT for sale, but the example being offered by Maine Line Exotics is particularly special.

MF10-100001 is the first Toyota 2000GT produced, and one of the three that Toyota delivered to Shelby American Racing in 1967 to be prepped for the 1968 SCCA season. Two of those cars raced under the Shelby-Toyota banner in 1968. MF10-100001 wore the #23 and was driven by Davey Jordan.

How much does Maine Line Exotics want for this important piece of automotive history? How does $1.7 million grab you? Head over to Maine Line Exotics for more information.

        This one shows the car off more. It's not on a track and it's in Japanese. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhCfGQVRGys&feature=related

          The Genesis Coupe is a future classic the way a 1970 Dodge Colt is a current classic. It's a budget RWD car.

          That's what YOU think. The Genesis Coupe is a future classic. Also, I'd say Rhys Millen's Genesis PM580 will be a collectible, much like his dad's Toyota Celica and Tacoma Pikes Peak cars.

          So a budget RWD car can't be a classic? Wow, so I guess the Datsun Z cars aren't classic? Dodge Dart? Ford Mustang? Chevy Camaro? VW Beetle? By the way, the Genesis Coupe is hardly a budget car. Seeing as it's just below $27,000 for the highest trim package 2.0T.

      This car is bad ass but at the same time so unoriginal. A rip off design wise to the Jag E type. I would take this over the Jag only cause of its rarity but, there is no way I'd be willing to shell out 200k plus for it.

        And just to add, 1.7 million is absurd.

        Also 1.7 million is absurd. They can ask whatever they want for it but i doubt they'll come come close to getting that much. I could see Toyota possibly trying to buy it for their heritage museum.

          People pay that much for paintings. This is also a piece of art.

      Before buying a car or a truck from a foreign company, think about this: Those foreign car companies that are building plants here in the USA pay American workers half of what workers from American car companies make. That's half the money to spend and half the tax revenue collected from wages! Also all the profits from these plants go right back to a foreign country except what goes into our politicians pockets. NOW TELL ME THIS IS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY!!!!! No other country would allow foreign companies to take over their auto industry. That is exactly what is happening to the USA!!

      Of corse its going to win a race. They accelerate on there own. plus the recalls on it are probably finnally over..There is no Toyota worth 1.7 mill I would be ashamned to put that trash in my collection. I paid less than that for a Dusenburg. Lets get real and I will give you %50 k for it and use it in demolishion derbies.

      The person that pays "that" price for "that" car has more money than sense. That design is called "early awful".
