The Toyota Sports 800 was Toyota's first production sports car.

It went into production in 1965, with chassis code UP15. It used the mechanics of the «Publica 700», but with an increased displacement to 798cc and two carburettors, which gave the Sports 800 45 horsepower, enough to propel the light car to speeds of 160 km/h.
