      They should have spent more time perfecting this car. A Lancer Evo 8 could do a better 0-60 and it had only 276 hp.

      The rear quarter shot, aside from the exhaust area, looks pretty good actually. Very beefy, and fenders/sides are pretty nice. Aside from that...

      IDK.. seems about right based on what some "500 hp" imports/four banger do on Pass Time.


      And this looks more like a marketing thing than any type of real concept.
      This was done to coincide with the release of the 7th gen Celica.

      Not Stillen...RMM built this car. My first car was a 7th celica; totally awesome and underappreciated car. Light weight, was one of the best handlin front wheel drive car at the time, and the 2zzge (and to a lesser extent, the 1zz) were awesome engines in this car.

      I was going to say that this isn't exactly fair, as the Celica was only FWD, but then I read that they swapped in the Celica All-Trac AWD.

      Maybe he didn't launch it, and it was more of a 5-60. The 5-60 time of a Boss 302 (444hp) is 4.5 seconds, not that far off the mark, really. Accounting for bad gearing and turbo lag..

      This was simply a design and engineering excercise. Something for Toyota to show off at SEMA and tie in their IRL/CART participation at the time. It should come as no suprise that not much developement time went into the car, most likely 99% of the distance covered in the car was going along at under 10mph.
