ISSUE 255: I have to admit, before the notion of comparing a Jaguar E-type with a Toyota 2000GT was offered as a potential feature idea for an article in this issue I’d never even heard of this Japanese ‘Sixties six-pot coupé – and I don’t think I’m alone. RM Auctions referred to the 2000GT as “the best sports car you’ve never heard of” when it sold one in America last year. But, because I do have a soft spot for Japanese cars, the more I learn about this quirky looking classic, the more I like it.Our E-type versus 2000GT comparison is just one of the great articles for you to read and enjoy at your leisure, but in flicking through this week’s issue please don’t forget to have a look at page 64 as you’re once again in with a chance of winning our competition in association with Country Lane Tours ( You and a lucky passenger could be spending six days touring the best parts of Wales next year with a group of liked minded enthusiasts in your classic car.
