Following the success of the ST185 in the World Rally Championship Toyota was eager to get back at it with the new and improved ST205. This all-new designed not only updated the chassis but also the engine, suspension, and interior. This modern road-legal rally car was exciting in every aspect. The ST205 Celica was the most powerful GT-Four to date and combined with its world-class AWD system allowed it to be highly competitive in the World Rally Championship. In fact, it was so far ahead of its time it was eventually suspended for a season for its use of an incredibly sophisticated turbo restrictor system. In order to compete Toyota had to build 2,500 road-going versions for homologation purposes. While not only rare, to begin with, this '94 has also been fitted with some OEM upgrades by the original owner. Toyota's Super White II (040) looks fantastic on the car and is in immaculate shape.

Car starts right up every time and gets wild looks from people.
Mechanically is where the GT-Four really shines! As if the striking good looks weren't enough the drive train backs up the bark. The ST205 is equipped with the 3S-GTE which has proven itself over the years both on the street and in WRC as being not only reliable but capable of making large horsepower numbers. The 3S-GTE in this generation was the most powerful offering yet and included a twin entry turbo along with an innovative water to air intercooler.
The Super Strut Suspension was unique to the GT-Four as it was designed with both tarmac and dirt making it incredibly capable. The ride is a bit stiffer than many stock cars, but it's not something that beats you up every time you hit a bump in the road. Now is your chance to own a true piece of rally history!
The value of this Rare car will continue to climb, check out prices on Lancia Deltas, Ford Escort Cosworth and the like which were produced in the 2500 units range per WRC rules of the early 90's.
