Toyota 2000 GT / 'You Only Live Twice'


As the fifth film in the James Bond franchise, 'You Only Live Twice' (1967) starred what was generally considered to be a futuristic car at the time -- the Toyota 2000 GT convertible. Interestingly, the GT was loaded with all sorts of advanced features for the time -- including an independent suspension and disc brakes on each wheel. It was "the perfect fit for Bond, but not for Connery -- the Scotsman was just too damn big for it," according to MSN Autos. So...Toyota ended up creating two especially for the film without roofs, rather just some upholstery to simulate a folded top. Pretty cool considering the screenplay for this film was written by Roald Dahl (James and the Giant Peach). Talk about range.
