The ultra-low coupe body was designed in-house, supported by an X-shaped backbone frame that came equipped with a Yamaha 2000 cc. in-line six cylinder DOHC (double overhead camshaft) engine, a four wheel independent suspension with double wishbone and coil spring layout, four wheel disc brakes and four magnesium wheels.

Its performance was world-class, including a maximum speed of 220 kph and a 0-100 kph acceleration in 8.6 seconds.
Two of its prototypes were converted into open-tops and appeared in a James Bond film “You Only Live Twice”.

This 2.0 litre straight-six-powered coupe finished third in the 1966 Japanese GP and went on to establish three world endurance records, including the fastest average speed continuously over 16,000 kilometres – 207km/h.
