This particular car is lightly modified, and it looking all the more awesome because of it.
Ignoring the Italvolanti wheel and Alpine GPS unit (looking a little too out of place in my eyes!), and the overall clutter, the rest of the added audio is welcome to stay. I like the Alpine tape-deck and stacker in the rear hatch area; and speaker box/pod units are always rad.
This engine was only introduced one year earlier, and was impressive for its day. Despite being naturally aspirated; fuel injection, a 24valve twincam head, and TVIS helped the 2-litre six produce 119kw/160hp. In this particular car this is mated to a 5speed manual.
Cool car overall.
I usually prefer this generation of Celica XX/Supra with the extra flares and spoilers; but I'm liking this one just the way it is.
