Twin Car #1
2002 Celica GTS, Slick top with Dealer installed TRD upgrades.
Originally ordered by a Father and Son our Twin Celica GTS cars have been in storage since 2005. The cars were ordered and converted to TRD spec by the selling dealer in Florida. The idea was to create a Father and Son race team that would compete at
club events. Sadly the dream was never realized and the cars were sparingly used as commuters then placed in storage in Florida.
The cars have seen no salt or have been exposed to midwestern winter.
The cars have been inspected, and fully serviced including brake fluid flush and new tires.
The Toyota Celica GTS with TRD Action Body Kit set the pace with its racy, razor-edge lines, looking like the very embodiment of high-technology performance.
The Celica is light on its feet and tenacious in turns. Powered by the famous 2ZZ (also used in the Lotus Elise) 1.8Liter engine that loves to rev and a brutal power band. Transmission is a manual six-speed gearbox with short throw shifter. The differential is a TRD limited slip unit. Many writers of the time compared the Celica GT-S to a motorcycle on four wheels, the automotive equivalent of a screaming, hyper-horsepower super-bike.
GT-S was the pinnacle of the Celica lineup with distinctive styling, Excellent track inspired handling and an impressive 180-horsepower 2ZZ 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine developed with assistance from Yamaha.Toyota's VVTL-i variable valve timing, lift and duration, Variable valve timing allows the the 2ZZ to deliver high horsepower with flexible torque around town.
The Base GT-S retailed for $21,555.
The GT-S also differed in standard equipment from its GT sibling. The GT had a six-speaker stereo with both cassette and CD, power windows, power mirrors and air conditioning. The GT-S adds two more speakers and amplified power, fog lamps, drilled aluminum sport pedals, power locks, leather steering wheel and shift knob, cruise control and alloy wheels with wider tires. Additionally, our GT-S adds these options: TRD Action Body Kit including Special front and rear facia, Special side skirts, a High Rear Spoiler and 16-inch alloy wheels with lower-profile speed-rated tires, TRD exhaust (adds 14hp), TRD coil over Suspension, TRD Short Throw Shifter, Rear strut tower brace, TRD Air cleaner Element.
