Toyota GT-One I by Atmosphotography Toyota GT-One I by Atmosphotography
The Toyota GT-One. when Toyota went to Le Mans, and they found out that the rules said they had to have a trunk on the car. However, the rules didn't say anything about putting fuel in the trunk.
There were just enough road-going versions to fulfill the homologation rules, making the GT-One the first Toyota Supercar.
That's right, this wasn't a prototype car, this was running in the GT1 class. (probably hence the name.)
in '98 this car ran extremely well for the first 16 hours, but two of the three cars started having mechanical problems therefater, and the remaining car finished 9th overall. Not bad for a GT car.

nice car the gt1, its a real shame that in two years of racing thru le mans, ALMS and so on, it never actually won anything.....
but all the same it was full of clever little ideas

well, thank you. I like to think I know what I'm talking about sometimes.
Everything I know, I learned from the Gran Turismo series.
(kay, well maybe not everything, but it has been very informative as well as a hell of a lot of fun.)
