“very fun car!”

Written on: 11/11/2013

I bought this car 2 1/2 years ago from a guy who imported it from japan. Put in some work...new bearings in intercooler pump, new thermostat, new rear wheel bearings, new plugs, wires, rotors,...and most recently new figure 8 and lower control arms. Expensive, but in 2 1/2 years not too bad :) An absolute joy to drove in the winter time :) Amazing car on slippery surfaces with the proper tires.....just blast by anyone else on snow covered roads :D. Turbo pulls hard and sticks to the road… Read Full Review

“Handling is amazing, love the speed and the attention!”

Written on: 01/07/2012 by M4rkST205 (1 review written)

I have owned the car 1 and a half years now, moving on from a VTEC civic. The instant low down power and the grip from the AWD impressed me first. My civic had Volk TE-37 wheels and sat very low, it was a head turner and I was wondering how people would react to the 4...wow! It had corroded cheap alloy wheels (since been replaced) and was more or less standard and heads turned wherever it went! The roar and whoosh of the turbo sounds mean and coupled with a HKS blow off valve is music to my… Read Full Review

“TOYOTA CELICA GT4”

Written on: 27/03/2012 by manjbains (1 review written)

I have owned my TOYOTA CELICA GT4 UK MODEL for over one year now and the car has been fantastic since day one. I bought it of a elderly lady who had the car from brand new and paid £30,000 when new. The car has covered 70,000 miles which is very low. Even tho it is 17 years old it still drives and feels like new even today. The 240 bhp is fantastic with permanent four wheel drive, it holds the road superbly in dry and wet weather. If you drive the car like a mature man like me you will get… Read Full Review

A great car to drive on fast twisty roads. Loads of tuning parts to make it quicker, comfortable. Does drink petrol (mine averages 22mpg). All in all if you've got the money to run it, go for it. Dare to be different… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2008

The boot is massive! You could gte 2 adults in the back of it. The interiour on the gt four is mostly leather: eg: dash apart from center collum, backs of the chairs, gear stick with leather boot, steering wheel and the door panels are part leather. Check your facts about the celica gt four generation six. Practibility. Well that should be more than 2 if comparing to a Subaru due to its a lower insurance group and it does more miles to the gallon!… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/03/2008

I bought my GT4 about 4 years ago with 72000 miles on it loved it from the word go & it certainly did go. I fitted it with some 17" gold oz racing alloys, uprated suspension, bushes & brakes. Unfortunately due to the thermostat sticking which resulted in overheating I had to take it off the road for fear of doing any damage. Then due to financial commitments left it sat idle for two years. I have now just recently had a brand new zero miles engine fitted straight from the factory, done a few… Read Full Review

Fantastic car. Handling, performance, reliability, the engine is very strong which can handle a good thrashing. The turbo is very responsive from standard. If you have never had one its a must buy. Great value for money and great fun… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/06/2006 by GT4WRC (1 review written)

Great all round car, handles and performs brilliantly, ultra reliable in the 2 years I have owned the Toyota Celica GT4, I have had to replace the following parts:
Clutch £285
Rear diff mount £90
Exhaust £200

Apart from that it has had very little money spent on it. Front tyres wear quickly but you would expect that with the amount of grip you get… Read Full Review

The car with the big spoiler you can still see out of your rear window with. Sorry officer, this time I can see your lovely blue flashing lights behind me... before you switch them on.

Go for the Toyota Celica WRC GT4 if possible - only 2500 models made, and it's becoming well sought after for the real McCoy in top condition.

Written on: 27/01/2006 by Andy Benn (1 review written)

Bought my Toyota Celica GT4 6 months ago, and it's a great car. If not just a little heavy but the power to weight ratio can soon be broken with a couple of simple relatively cheap modifications, seeing 300 BHP withhout fear of blowing the engine.

Watch out for clutch wear at 70,000 miles + mine was shot to bits luckily it was replaced during warranty avoiding large labour costs...ENGINE OUT TO REPLACE CLUTCH

And the super strut suspension bushes are liable to wear around 80,000 + although… Read Full Review

I have had my Clutch done, mine is also a WRC and the engine does NOT need to come out, it can be done in a day without lifting the engine at all.

Written on: 18/11/2005 by Moomin1975 (1 review written)

The Toyota Celica GT-Four is a rally bred monster that is quite capable of blasting down the road at 150mph but is also easy to drive to and from the shops (my girlfriend has even had a go).

The car is quite understated (even with the high wing) but still looks very different to the boring, boxy scooby's and evo's. Although access to the rear seats is not the easiest, room in the cabin is still quite good. Forget about the boot though. Due to the rear diff and a rear strut brace, you'll be… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2005 by richwatson (4 reviews written)

My friend bought the Toyota Celica GT4 practically new and screamed around in it for a while, then I purchased it from him. I have been driving it for around 10 years, and the car has done 135,000 miles. Around 80,000 I have covered. I have owned 2 Toyota MR2's prior to this car, and I believe this one has been more reliable.

It has always been Dealership serviced in Cheltenham, and the only expensive things I remember are the clutch at 61000 miles, and discs all round at about 80/90000 miles… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/09/2004 by tamlin (2 reviews written)

I bought this Toyota Celica GT4 sports car a month ago and have had to look into a clutch replacement and the bushes are knocking up front, though I do believe it is due to being left to sit for extended periods of time. Its a 98' import and has done only 28k! documented! and its on an 94'L reg. I love this car, I have had an MR2 and enjoyed every mile, and the quality is just the same in the celica, it is amazingly well put together with a braced chassis front and rear and controls exactly… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2003 by simon. (1 review written)

Want an alternative to the mainstream 4wd turbo cars, try the Toyota Calica GT4 (ST205 model), quiet understated looks even with a bloody great wing, nobody knows what you are in until that right foot drops, and then the turbo cuts in and bye bye BMW, or other equally annoying car owner.

239 bhp, loads of toys and remember Subaru only won the rally championship when Toyota pulled out!!… Read Full Review

The standard 3 spoke wheels? Bin them! They were only put on so the boys from Japan would get to keep most of there favourite toys on their own turf... set of 18" WORK miesters on this baby makes this machine look as it was meant to be... the only down side is that they are some what impossible to find in the UK.

They did cheat a little :-) But in all fairness the engineering that went into cheating was well nothing short of genius! It was only by chance they got caught.
But I think to their credit they won a fair few events before that started!
