Enjoying the Limelight

1970 was the year that the world was first greeted with Toyota's legendary Celica, and the car continued to innovate and impress through the domestic market's top spec Celica XX in 1978 and then the second generation Celica XX 2800GT (known as Celica Supra outside of Japan) from 1981. Sporting a 2.8-liter DOHC 6-cylinder engine and fitted with jazzy overfenders and roof spoiler in some export versions, the car was a frequent sight at racetracks; it was employed as the marshal car for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in 1982, complete with a BAE turbocharger and boosted output of 230hp that doubtless won the car even more admirers over the race weekend.

  • The breathtaking form of the car is captured in style, with separate parts provided to recreate the front and rear overfenders.
  • A combination of clear and metal-plated parts is employed to depict the light bar, with a separate part for the roof spoiler.
  • Moving headlights are another feature of the model, and can be secured in their popped up position if so desired.

This re-issue model kit recreates the classic Toyota Celica Supra from 1983, which depicts a special version of the Celica Supra that was used as the race marshal’s car in the 1982 Formula One race held in Long Beach, California, USA. Its tuned engine produced 230hp and a top speed of over 230km/h. The car made for a thrilling sight as it bombed around the circuit, thanks to over-sized fenders and a sporty rear spoiler!
