Those '98 are sweet!





But the '99 ones are just as nice in their own special ways. Autoart really did a fantastic job making those cars!!

Gorgeous contours seen from the front and back...


Stunning details on the wheels and brakes. The tail looks stunning too.

It isn't a street car is it! its still a racer only with no livery, all the GT-1 cars from 97/98 were the same, but would be nice for AUTOart to re-release this in a livery-less version, doubt it will happen though.

This is in fact the road version of the GT-One. In order for the GT-One to race at Le Mans, Toyota had to homogolate it by building one road going version. You may not be able to see it in the picture but the road version has a higher ride height and the race car. The road version also has catalytic converter and other equipment that is necessary make it road going.

There was a buyer that offered Toyota $1 million for the road car but Toyota refuse to sell it. This particular car now resides in Toyota's Museum in Japan.
