Oh-kay, so if you know anything about autos you've most definitely heard of the Lexus LFA. It's the nearly $400,000 Lexus that everyone loves to hate but sounds like a Formula 1 car. But as much as many people will say Toyota can't build a sports car, think again.

Here's the thing though, they are incredibly rare. According to the seller only 62 came to the states out of the 351 global production. Supposedly only 40 are known to exist.

I guess that would explain the $650,000 Buy It Now price!

Of the 351 cars made, only 84 were left hand drive, of which only 62 came into the U.S.A. between 1967-70. Today less than 40 of those are known to still exist, making this one of the rarest collector vehicles in the world.

All 2000GT's were handbuilt by Yamaha, and today are universally regarded as being the first Japanese "Supercar". Fitted with a 2 liter, twin cam six cylinder engine with 3 twin-choke carburetors and a 5-speed transmission the GT 'redlines' at 7000rpm, producing speeds of 70 mph in 2nd; 100 in 3rd; and just below 140 mph in top end...
