Not only does this Toyota Celica looks awesome, but it was also build for speed, aiming to race in Time Attack events.
The story is that its owner, Owen Cutbush, got sick of modern chipped Evo, Supras and Skylines, building this oldschool little Titan, called The Blue Robin.

It is a 1977 Toyota Celica RA28 and it took about ten months for Owen to bring it to the actual shape. Its interior is fully naked, having only a 6-point rollcage, a Cobra Suzuka GT bucket seat and a fire extinguisher.

Performance is provided by the 280 hp SR20DET engine aided by a KKR 380 15 psi turbocharger, 680 cc injectors, adjustable regulator and an Apexi FC ECU (looks like this old banger bears a bit of modern features though).

See the cool tech-style montage bellow to see the rest of the car’s features and also be amazed of the muscly-shaped Celica.
