    Surely it will be running the 3S-GE so about 173bhp and the GT4 245bhp. Well that would be a 95 Celica.

    A 90 one I would imagine to be 158bhp.

    I dont really understand how you've managed to get a quote for a Turbocharged import sports coupe at 18 of £1600.

    Whats the secret?

    What insurance group is that. Cause I get 1000 quid on a group 16 nissan 200sx 1.8 turbo, so 1600 doesnt seem bad.

    From Parkers :

    Production: 01 Mar 1994 until 01 Dec 1996
    Length: 4470 mm
    Width: 1727 mm
    Weight: 1440 kg
    Fuel Delivery: Twin entry turbo
    Transmission: Manual
    Gears: 5 Speed


    From http://www.rallycars.com/Cars/Toyota_GT4/Celica3.html

    "The specification of the street version ST205 Celica can be found here. As you might have already guessed this was some car. Toyota delivered more in the Celica GTFour than one could hope for. The Torsen (which stands for Torque Sensing) rear differential was a very good surprise too. Previously used in the Lancia Integrale and the Audi Quattro this device generates extra costs to the overall price of the car. No wonder the Celica GTFour was the most expensive street versions of the homologation specials. The one problem the street Celica version was suffering from was its weight. A laden weight of around 1450Kg is way too high for a "sports" car and generates important inertia-induced parasitic movements. This fact influenced badly the car's handling abilities."

    Ignoring the numbers, the car simply feels lardy to drive IMO.

    that information is rubbish, the GT4OC have had theirs on weighbridges. the ST205 is significantly lighter and better handling than the 185
