Description

- Registered in Abruzzo in 1992, 3 previous owners, one of whom was a Toyota dealer of the area. 146,000km covered in 28 years. Complete with manuals and servicing invoices.
- Numbered series of 5,000 examples of the legendary Celica ST185L, built to obtain FIA homologation for the WRC championship. Known as GT-Four RC in Japan, the 3,000 cars destined for Europe were named after WRC driver Carlos Sainz.
- Bodywork and interior subjected to professional detailing with attention to every detail. Original in all specific components of this very rare special series, much of the paintwork is still factory made and protected with specific treatment (nanotechnology).
- Mechanics with attention to every detail new catalyst and brakes, timing belt replaced by Toyota, documented interventions, new tyres, and servicing recently carried out. Revision of the fuel and injection system.
- The numbered Carlos Sainz series included several improvements developed for the competition versions such as the water/air intercooler, more efficient than the standard one bonnet and specific bumpers, lightened with optimised airflow quick-shift gears and clutch with reduced stroke reinforced synchronisers (3 cones) on second and third gear. The proposed car also has light tuning for those true rally fans that includes braided Aeronautical type front brake lines, Japspeed sports exhaust, adjustable shock absorbers, 17 Compomotive wheels, slotted front disc brakes, OMP Wrc racing steering wheel (original steering wheel available), sports pedals. Lightweight and fully reversible modifications. This is also a youngtimer not to be missed in the condition and special setting proposed, with a clear and documented history.
