Toyota Reproduces and Sells Spare Parts for 2000GT
GR Heritage Parts Project

Toyota City, Japan, July 6, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (hereafter TGR) announces that it will reproduce spare parts for Toyota 2000GT as GR Heritage Parts Project, and will sell them both domestically and overseas.








This project is an initiative that will reproduce spare parts that were no longer available, and sell them as genuine parts to customers who aspire to continue driving their cherished cars filled with their memories. Previously, in May 2019, an announcement was made to reproduce and sell spare parts for A70 and A80 Supra at the GR Supra press conference, and Toyota 2000GT will be the next model following on from this.

Toyota 2000GT was a sports car launched in 1967 through collaboration with Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. Until production ended in 1970, 337 units were manufactured. It adopted the latest Japanese technology, including a 2.0-liter DOHC straight-six engine, four-wheel double-wishbone suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, radial tires, magnesium alloy wheels, and retractable headlamps, and boasted a maximum speed of 220 kph, on a par with European sports cars of the day. Prior to its launch, it took part in speed trials and, despite inclement conditions with an approaching typhoon, it set three world records (10,000 miles, 15,000 kms, 72 hours) and 13 international records. It also achieved wins and high placement in various races. It became a world-renowned sports car for Toyota, and was used in scenes shot in Japan for the James Bond film You Only Live Twice.

Efforts are underway at specially collaborating suppliers, along with Toyota plants and related divisions, in preparation for the production of the reproduced parts due to go on sale. From August 1, 2020, information will be steadily updated on the TGR website(1), and orders will be accepted. In addition, reproduced parts may be purchased from Toyota dealers in the same way as normal genuine parts. However, due to the uniqueness of the Toyota 2000GT, sales will be restricted to owners, to prevent reselling; and the number of parts sold will be limited per car.

Also, with regards to the first round of reproduced parts for A70 and A80 Supra, announced in January 2020(3), some (A70 fuel sender gauge, A70 door handle, and A80 door handle) will be available to order through Toyota dealers in Japan and overseas from July 1. Information regarding the commencement of orders for other parts will be posted on the TGR website.
