In-game descriptionEdit

"The "Yota-Hachi", quick around corners with its wide tread and low centre of gravity."



With its compact and lightweight body, the Toyota Sports 800 was one of the most admired sports cars of its day. It made its debut in 1965, and represented Toyota's first production sports car. Known in Japan as the "Yota-Hachi" a vernacular phrase for "Toyota Eight," it also was the first Japanese car to feature a targa top and removable roof panel.

As a sports car, it was cleverly designed. It aimed for simplicity rather than complicated mechanics, so many parts came from its popular boxy passenger-car, the Publica. The Yota-Hachi was smaller than the Publica, with an overall length of 140.9 inches.

The engine was a 790 cc flat-2 with two carburetors helping it to produce 44 HP. Although it wasn't as powerful as other sports cars, its lean 580 kg curb weight allowed it to behave like a true performance machine on the road. The FR (Front engine, Rear drive) exhibited adequate punch off the line and was able to reach 96 mph, performance comparable to cars with 1,500 cc engines.

Thanks in part to the Publica's wide tread and low center of gravity, the Sports 800 demonstrated exceptional agility on the twisty stuff, with sharp turn-in response and near neutral handling balance. Its main rival was the Honda S800, and oftentimes, the Sports 800 battled the little Honda on both road and track.
