Super Celica Turbo Street by vsdesign69 Super Celica Turbo Street by vsdesign69
The base: 1980 Dome Toyota Celica Turbo IMSA/Super Silhouette
The project: Street Legal

This time, I've worked on an exotic and rare car of the early 80's, the Celica RA40 Turbo modified by Dome. This racing car (one ex) raced first in IMSA (GTX) during the 1980 season, then returned in Japan and raced in Super Silhouette championship in the early 80's. The original exemplary is still alive!

I've decided to modified this unique racing monster in a possible road car, like the incredible street GT1s in the 90's. Now, (on paper), a street super silhouette.
The car has retained its original form ( with the silhouette widebodykit, big wing,etc.), has a red interior and a black bodypaint with gold rims. A pure killer!
Enjoy!

yea, it's almost the same period; widebody kit are similar on the super silhouette, gr5, imsa cars. In japan, there are other similar cars like the nissan bluebird turbo, etc.

Isn't the schnitzer celica gr5( trust sponsor)? because this car(the dome) is unique, I believe, and I have seen current pics of this black machine in good conditions.
But I've ever seen the schnitzer version, in Japan, indeed, which was rotten and rusty...

yeah, the Group 5 Celica they found in Japan was the former AC Schnitzer one now that i recall. i remember reading about it on Speedhunters once.

not sure if the current owner will even bother selling the Trust Celica, since its basically a piece of racing history.

the Trust and the blue schnitzer are the same car ( schnitzer model: DRM late70's in germany, then red and white (toms) and the Trust version, it is in 1982 ( in Japan), (blue and white).) It's this car which is rotten ( unfortunately)...
I'm sad :[link]

Mine is an other car, which is still in good conditions : [link](3).jpg&w=600&h=400&ei=xB3GUIrvIceY1AX84oDwBw&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=373&sig=107361196112890405146&page=1&tbnh=149&tbnw=227&start=0&ndsp=54&ved=1t:429,r:14,s:0,i:126&tx=183&ty=87
