I remember it like it was yesterday. The Lexus LFA debuted and jaws were agape. The 10-year mystery was finally solved. Of course there was one problem though. The price was over $300,000 when most folks were expecting something more in line with about $100,000 to $150,000 per unit.
Then you had folks bum rush the party with the whole Nissan GT-R argument.

Looking back on it though, $350 large is chump change. That's because the equally cool 2000GT just sold for a whopping $1.2 million dollars. That's Ferrari money right there, folks.

This 2000GT was a rare left-hand drive car — one of 62, out of a total of 351 built.

A 1967 Toyota 2000GT sold for $1.16 million at auction in April, defying the Japanese brand's image as a maker of affordable vehicles and becoming the most expensive Asian car ever sold.
