The Toyota Sera is a 2+2 hatchback Coupe designed and built by Toyota from 1990 to 1996. Although produced solely for the Japanese market, it raised interest overseas and has since been imported by car enthusiasts around the world. It was initially unveiled in 1988 as the Toyota AXV-II concept car in almost production-ready form. The name comes from the French word meaning ‘will be’, the French verb ‘being’ in future tense, which is indicative of both the overall futuristic design and also the closeness of the concept car to the final production version. The Sera is most notable for its Gullwing doors which tilt up and forward when opened, and the canopy constructed largely of glass panels.
From a private collection, this very rare gullwing-doored modern classic in fine condition, and is offered at no reserve to the highest bidder.
