    Description

    In the 1980s, with the introduction of the Audi Quattro into the World Rally Championship, the significance of 4WD technology for achieving victory became evident. During this time, the FIA introduced new regulations in 1982. In anticipation of the 1983 WRC season under these new Group B regulations, Toyota unveiled their TA-64 Celica Twin Cam Turbo.These Group B regulations were notable for relaxing production constraints and providing greater freedom for development. While other manufacturers explored 4WD midships, Toyota took a different approach, opting for a 2WD rear-wheel-drive configuration. The suspension system consisted of McPherson struts in the front and a 4-link rigid setup in the rear. This simplicity contributed to a lightweight design at 1150 kg, making it highly durable and reliable.Under the hood, the Celica was powered by a twin-plug, inline 4-cylinder DOHC engine with 8 valves and a displacement of 2090cc. The engine featured two ignition plugs per cylinder. To fit within the displacement class of 3 litres or less, a turbocharged engine with a multiplication factor of 1.4 was used. The Celica was equipped with a KKK turbocharger and delivered an impressive power output ranging from 320 to 340 horsepower.The foundation for this rally car was the 3rd generation Celica introduced in 1981. An 1800GT-T variant with a twin cam turbo was added to the line up in 1982. That same year, the 1800GT-TS was introduced as a Group B homologation model, with a production requirement of 200 units. The rally car was crafted by Toyota Team Europe (TTE), which functioned as the Toyota works team at that time.The TA-64 Celica Twin Cam Turbo made its WRC debut at the 1000 Lakes Rally during the 9th round of the 1983 season. The Yuha Kankunen team finished 6th overall, and in the 11th round, Rallye Côte d'Ivoire, held in October, Björn Waldegård secured victory.In 1984, the Celica participated in several rallies to enhance its performance. Notably, the Waldegård team clinched the championship at the 4th round Safari Rally in April. The Celica continued to achieve victories in the years that followed. In 1985, the Kankkunen team secured the championship at the 4th round Safari Rally, with Waldegård's team finishing in 2nd place. The Celica also triumphed at Rallye Côte d'Ivoire, securing a 1-2 finish in two rallies held in Africa.In 1986, the Celica made history by winning the Safari Rally for the third consecutive time, in addition to claiming victory in the Cote d'Ivoire rally with a remarkable 1-2-3-4 finish, dominating the top four positions. While 4WD high-performance machines gained popularity, the Celica's light weight, reliability, and exceptional durability allowed it to shine in challenging rallies. The Toyota TA-64 Celica Twin Cam Turbo left an indelible mark on the history of rally racing.Noteworthy Details:
