Based on the Toyota 2000GT, which was available for acquisition between 1967 and 1970 worldwide and got sold in just 351 pieces, the Toyota 2000GT solar electric car is the modern upgraded version of the classic, launched in front of a huge public in Tokyo, at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon.

The elder model of the car was rough competition, from looks to performance, to all the boxy American muscle cars and the slick European designs. It features an extremely curvy body and an up-to-date performance package.

Crazy Car Project penned down the current model overviewed by Toyota Automobile Association. It now runs off of solar power, a way more contemporary propulsion system than the old 150 HP DOHC 2-liter straight-6 engine assisted by a 5-speed manual transmission and 4-wheel disc brakes.

The nowadays motor draws power from on-board lithium-ion batteries that auto-recharge themselves courtesy of solar energy panels from the hood and black glass. The interior features modern gadgetry, signed JBL, Panasonic, Gentex and more.
