Toyota Celica

Celica has been a sports specialty car for seven generations, following Toyota's full-scale sports cars "2000GT" and "1600GT".

Toyota Celica
The first "Celica" was released in 1970, and was nicknamed "Dharma" because its plump body line and plated front bumper look like Dharma's beard.
There are four types of in-line 4-cylinder engines, 1.4 liter, 1.6 liter, twin cab 1.6 liter, and twin cab 1.6 liter DOHC engine. We adopted a "full choice" system that you can choose.
Also, in 1973, the "Celica Liftback", a 3-door body with a gently sloping rear gate, appeared, and the tail lamps with five layouts made the image of an American car at that time, and became more popular than the coupe.


Toyota Celica
The "2nd generation Celica" that appeared in 1977 has a lineup of 2 types, a 2-door coupe and a 3-door liftback, just like the first generation. The model, which adopted Japan's first three-dimensional curved side glass to increase aerodynamics, had a look that contradicted the sharp impression of the previous liftback, and was not very popular.


Toyota Celica
The "3rd generation Celica" released in 1981 adopted the pop-up headlights characteristic of the early model, but it was changed to the general retractable type in the latter model. Vehicles equipped with a 1.6? engine are equipped with the same 16-valve 4A-GE engine as the AE86 Levin / Trueno, instead of the conventional 8-valve DOHC.


Toyota Celica
In 1985, Toyota will use the same chassis as the "Carina / Corona" as before, so the "4th generation Celica" will change from FR to FF, and only a 3-door type with retractable headlights and a rounded body line. It became a lineup of.
In 1986, a full-time 4WD "Celica GT-FOUR" equipped with a turbocharged power unit with a maximum output of 185PS and a center differential with a manual diff lock appeared, and will continue to play an active role in the rally world.


Toyota Celica
In 1989, the "5th generation Celica" will be released, which is based on the "4th generation Celica" and uses a chassis that has been reinforced and tuned for each part. The top-grade full-time 4WD "Celica GT-FOUR" has achieved a maximum output of 225PS by increasing the compression of the engine and tuning in detail. The rally competition base car "GT-FOUR Rally" will also be lined up, and the image that "Celica is strong in rallies" will be firmly established.


Toyota Celica
The "SS-II", which is a sporty model of the "6th generation Celica" in 1993, was also available with a "super strut suspension" equipped with a 2-liter 4-cylinder DOHC engine that generates 180PS.
In 1994, we launched the WRC homologation model "Celica GT-FOUR" equipped with a 2-liter 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve turbo engine that demonstrates 255PS by incorporating a water-cooled intercooler and a D-JETRO fuel supply system. "Celica GT-FOUR" played an active part in the rally


Toyota Celica
In 1999, the 7th generation Celica was launched with a unique design that differed from previous Celicas in terms of its long wheelbase, longitudinal headlights, and steep rear deck, which were designed to improve stability at high speeds.
However, not only was it not as popular as the "6th generation Celica", but it was not accepted by the market, so it was discontinued in 2006, ending the 36-year history of Celica.
