Trending in Canada While everybody was freaking out about the new Supra, Toyota was already busy at work building its next sports car—or rather, re-building one from 1960s racing history.The car is a Toyota Sports 800 “Yotahachi” from 1966. It spent its life as a race car challenging mighty opponents like Datsun 1600 Roadsters, Honda S800s and Lotus Elans before it fell into complete disrepair.Now, a new video from Toyota shows the poor rusty 800 before and after its restoration by its Gazoo Racing arm. The car was finished in a modern Gazoo Racing livery, which actually works pretty good with the smooth lines of the Sports 800. COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever The car was complete junk, and because of its rarity, many of the ruined body panels had to be recreated by hand from raw sheet metal.From what we can gather from the translated video, the Toyota engine and transmission engineer relates there wasn’t any information in Toyota’s archives about this car, so restoring one meant they had to rely on old passed-down stories, and old-school techniques.The car was so bad to begin with, Toyota didn’t feel any remorse about upgrading some of the original parts on the car. The engine was rebuilt with higher compression to bump the power up to 70 horses; that doesn’t sound like much, but the car only weighs 580 kg.
