Rare 1967 Toyota 2000GT likely to fetch high price at US auction

Not all Japanese sports cars fetch huge sums of money on the classic car market, but Toyota's 2000GT is one that does. The result of a partnership between Yamaha and Toyota (after Nissan passed on the project), the 2000GT marked Toyota's first venture into the world of sports cars, but only 351 units were ever built from its production debut in 1967 to its 1970 conclusion. Now, one of those units is coming up for auction via RM Sotheby's in Elkhart, Indiana, on May 1-2, 2020.

The new classics: the cars becoming collectors' items

As far as investments go, there's little doubt classic cars are one of the most fun. As it turns out, they're not too shabby as a financial decision too. According to a recent AXA XL Art & Lifestyle insurance report on the global classic car market from 2018 to 2019, classic cars have remained stable "against a backdrop of widespread depreciation in passion assets". Specifically, the AXA report noted "an escalation in demand for instant classic cars built over the last 10 years".

Renewed criticism for 'significant risk' posed by silent hybrid and electric cars

Advocate groups for the blind and vision-impaired community have renewed their calls for greater regulation of electric vehicles due to the safety risks they pose to pedestrians as a result of their silent drivetrains. In new submissions to a New South Wales Government inquiry into the use of electric buses, Vision Australia has highlighted research suggesting one in three vision-impaired pedestrians reported having collisions or near-misses with electric cars.
