Toyota Celica is a model which was closely related to the history of motorsport within Japanese brand. The first half of the 1990s in the world of WRC belonged to the producers of vehicles from Japan. No wonder that the variant closest to the cars known from rally stages, enjoyed such a good reputation, and most importantly – it enjoys it today among collectors.
Celica offered by Classic Motors was brought to Poland in 2008, it was purchased from a dealer specializing in sports cars in Modena. The exact designation of the version is ST205L, where „L” stands for leather upholstery and air conditioning. The car has a mileage of 148000km and, according to the visual and technical condition, seems to be original. On Polish roads, the car covered around 25,000km. In 2010 the car underwent a general overhaul of the engine using parts of renowned brands – Wossner pistons and a Cometic head gasket. Suspension elements have been replaced largely by original Toyota parts. The elements that were used in a few years of use are:
– rear sway bar – Whiteline
– DBA front brake discs, rear EBC
– Aisin clutch
– rear subframe and differential- polyurethane
