1991 Toyota Celica GT Four RC Carlos Sainz Edition 

We have just got our hands on this awesome limited edition Carlos Sainz version of the famous Celica GT Four RC which is 1150 of 5000 only ever made worldwide and this is one of the 1800 only ever produced in Japan, this is super rare and very hard to find anything these days in this condition. 

The vehicle has undergone health and safety check by the AA as well as the kilometres being verified we have also gone over the car again and given it our “NZ Service” including four new brake discs and rack ends/tie rod ends.

We have also fitted a new Pioneer double din head unit with Bluetooth.

Overall as you can see by the images it’s in pretty good shape for a vehicle of this age, there are some small things that could be improved but this doesn’t affect the quality of this vehicle.  

It comes currently on 16” OZ Chrono rims but we could source the original 3 spoke rims if needed. 

We have previous history from about the last 3 to 4 years in Japan. (see attached pic) 

Please get in touch if you are interested to secure a great piece of history!

About the Carlos Sainz Edition: The Toyota Celica GT-Four was a high performance model of the Celica Liftback, with a turbocharged 3S-GTE engine, and full-time AWD. It was created to compete in the World Rally Championship, whose regulations dictate that a manufacturer must build road-going versions of the vehicle in sufficient numbers. These vehicles are referred to as "homologation special vehicles".

The Celica GT-Four came in three generations; ST165, based on the fourth generation Celica, and manufactured between October 1986 and August 1989; the Super Round shape ST185 produced from September 1989 to September 1993; and ST205 was built from February 1994 to June 1999.

There are three different gearboxes for ST185 GT-Four. The E150F with 4.285 final gear ratio was installed in the Japanese market and All-Trac. European and Australian specs come with E151F with 3.933 ratio. The Japanese market only GT-Four Rally has E152F with close ratio on the 1st through 4th gear and 4.285 final ratio. All the RC/Carlos Sainz/Group A Rallye have E151F.

The special homologation rally edition of 5000 units was known as the GT-Four RC was launched in September 1991 in Japan. The export version is known as Carlos Sainz (CS) Limited Edition in Europe (in honour of their famous WRC driver), or Group A Rallye in Australia.

Special features include:

  • a water-to-air intercooler instead of the standard air-to-air unit, which was much better suited for competition use.
  • different hood used to evacuate air from the engine bay rather than direct it to the intercooler (along with a small inlet duct for cambelt cooling).
  • different bumper that is much lighter and has more openings than the standard one.
  • shortened shift lever throw and clutch pedal travel.
  • triple cone synchromesh on gears 2 and 3, up from double cone.
  • a special numbered plaque on the center console.

Out of 5000 units, 1800 were for Japanese market, 3000 were allocated to Europe, 150 were delivered to Australia, 25 for Singapore, and very few made a trip to New Zealand and general markets.
