It was based on a Lotus and is probably one of the prettiest cars created my the Japanese; the Toyota The background of this car is quite to be honest. It started with which already produced car at that time. They an prototyped a sports car for Nissan, but rejected it. Toyota at that had a reputation of extreme boredom and so when Yamaha offered the to them, they saw a great to up their image. Anyone see reminiscence to the current GT86?

351 of these cars were and several of them were built to feature in the Bond-flick You Live Twice. The 2000GT was produced as a convertible, but it appeared as so in the However, they were 2000GT’s with their cut off. Because Sean was to tall, there was no room in the car to a larger, folded roof. why they just dumped random pieces of cloth in the to simulate a real folding Stories enough to remind to this car, but is an AUTOart model a better way?

The AUTOart Toyota 2000GT is in the Millenium-series, which raises expectations about the quality and Let’s first take a at the exterior. Specifically; the front. often enough uses headlights, but luckily not at this The 2000GT actually has four two big ones in the bumper and two extra pop-up in front of the bonnet. replicated all these features but more about that a bit on. There is a lot of detailing to find at the specifically the grille. It is divided several pieces using strips of chrome and look good. Also, the bumpers at the stick out as they should. The plate is mounted on two little on the lower point of the grille. that, practically on the underside of the we see nice air vents, although are not perforated. The air vents next to the are, luckily, perforated and have the correct amount of The hinges of the bonnet are a masterpiece on own, as they lie, in all chromed glory, between two casings. This is the kind of you expect from AUTOart.

Moving to the side we find two chromed mirrors, which are next to the bonnet. A bit lower on the we see two little metal logo’s. on more expensive AUTOart or a badge of this size definitely a sticker. Here but the sticker has a texture, so it’s to see that is is a fraud. The doorhandles are little chrome pieces and the beneath is chromed as well. I find a bit irritating, is the amount of Maybe they stand out in the red color, but that’s no excuse to them uneven. Also, the on the right side of my particular is mounted a bit off, which is noticeable at the chromed glass-casings. The has the two slots, just like the one. At the rear we see fitting as well. What I especially are the indicators, which stand out the fenders, including their own chromed casings. AUTOart these. The same goes for the lights, exhausts and the chromed What I do like as well is the antenna. No, I’m not going here, because AUTOart it would break when mounted an extended one, so created a chromed, folded You can even see the telescope-levels when you closely. The logo on the rear is a as well and the fuel-filler cap is nicely So to sum it up, a lot of detailing, a lot of chrome and a lot of brilliance. fix the shutlines#33;

The paint used is bright red and good on the 2000GT. You can also get it in Silver and Gold, but for me, this make the chromed detailing stand out. The color is nice and evenly applied to the but on the edges you will find thicker paint than A shame, because you can spot the edges from quite a

Wheels and tyres

This is an where the 2000GT falls a bit. First of all, the aren’t marked. Worse are the rims, which are glossy and fail their sham next to all the real chrome of the Also, the black backsides if the are grey and look cheap as At least they got the shape and right.

AUTOart back on in this chapter. The doors brilliantly on their extended which make that you a wide view inside. The thing you will notice is the steering wheel. AUTOart has the to mess the woodwork up, but at the 2000GT didn’t. You can see the texture on the steering and the dashboard and it looks quite but you’ll never mistake it for a Another very noticeable inside is the chromed detailing. is becoming the main-feature of this model and rightly so, because in the it looks right as well. The is small and light, just as it Impressing also, is the amount of for the knobs and switches. The glovebox is by what could easily be for a really opening lid. The are made out of cheap, black and the same goes for the floor. I was a bit by this, because underneath the floorplastic, AUTOart did flock the The same goes for the center and the trunk, all flocked with a texture.

An historic moment is coming up; the 20 / 20 score at one of my reviews. This 2000GT has every feature you dream of. Pop-up headlights. bonnet. Opening tailgate. Two doors. There’s even a surprise in the two little storage behind the front wheels. hinge on the underside of the lid and display ropes. Brilliant.

The engine is a as well. The bonnet hinges on the two chromed struts mentioned but has no support. Instead, there is an hinge, which extends to the strut of the bonnet. Very, impressive. The engine itself it too recognizable as cheap plastic, but all the you want are there. We see some tubing and wiring which in the right direction and is connected to the fittings. Detailwise, no complaints.

So, is this model any good. The Millenium-series is priced, with a bit lower then Signature and you can why if you look at the used plastics. at the detailing however, this matches and sometimes even recent Signature models. be fooled by the score; this is verging onto greatness.
