If you have a recommendation on service and body shops send it to us so that we can assist other members looking for help. Our database containing such information is still small and we need your input to make it a worthwhile service for our members.
Thanks for your support!
The Toyota Celica is back! This is the latest old school model to be redesigned for modern times along the theme of the Mini, the Scirocco and others set for release including the Capri and the Calibra. Manufacturers seem intent on looking back to previous models when it comes to latest release but with the shots of this latest Celica then who are we to argue. Codenamed the FT-86 this rear wheeled drive car is being called a concept but is likely to be available from UK dealerships next year. Named after the Corolla AE-86 which is a Japanese based rear drive coupe with cult status for its drifting abilities is what happens when Toyota and Subaru get together. At the front it has a superb air intake and the now standard item on all new cars – the LED headlights and on the inside touches inspired possibly by Audi are the flat bottom steering wheel. Set to cost around ï¿½22k when released the ‘Celica’ shares its chassis with the Subaru Legacy.
