Car Spotting In Brunei - Toyota Celica GT-4 (ST205)

Back in the 90s, Japan produced one of the best performance cars out there.  Now, I have no idea what is going on with that market.  The European cars are kicking there ass pretty badly in that sector.  Hopefully, the new Toyota Supra coming out in 2018 won't be a disappointment.

This particular fine Toyota Celica GT-4 belongs to a friend of mine and he has it for almost a decade or so.  The car is a turbo-charged 2.0litre (3S-GTE), 255hp rally machine. During the early 1990s, this car competed with Subaru WRX and Mitsubishi Evolution in the World Rally Championships.  I was lucky enough to witness those rally machine back in Perth, Western Australia in 1995.  In order to race in the WRC, 2500units of Celica GT-4 need to be homologated by Toyota.  So you are looking at 1 of 2500 in the whole world.  If I remember there are about 5 units in Brunei.  Not sure what happen to the other units.
