Celica GT-4 Facelift Model *** Fast Road Tuned ***
With a WRC racing heritage to support it's popularity and with Toyota not having invested in any further serious performance Celicas of this nature since, it's no surprise to find that the last generation GT-4 is gaining a deep following amongst those who can appreciate it's attributes. Now becoming collectable, genuine quality Celica GT-4's with performance improvements top condition are becoming very difficult to find, even in Japan. This year we have seen domestic prices in Japan strengthen for decent low mileage Celica GT-4 ST205 185H examples that have been well kept. So when we came across this mint example, we wanted it for our stock. At Newera we prefer to seek out the lowest mileage best preserved examples to import to the UK, as these offer better value and specification than the typical average examples commonly available for sale there. This example is the only GT-4 we've sourced so far this year - It's well above the average quality we've seen here in Japan. Direct comparison to tired rusted examples in UK would be wrong. This is much better than the tired sorry examples typically for sale there.
