This article is about the real rally car that first appeared in Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec. For the fictional car featured in Gran Turismo 2, see Toyota Celica Rally Car (ST205).

The Toyota CELICA GT-FOUR Rally Car (ST205) '95 is a 1995 WRC race car produced by Toyota. It appears in every main Gran Turismo game since Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, except Gran Turismo Sport.

The car appears to be the #1 driven by Didier Auriol, who would later get disqualified from the 1995 WRC season.

In-game descriptionEdit

"The rally machine that left an impression on many fans, though it only competed for a short time."


The Celica ST205 had big shoes to fill. After its predecessor, the ST185, handed Toyota a "double title" (winning both Driver's and Manufacturer's Championship the same year) in 1993, Toyota introduced this new Celica. On paper, the ST205 was markedly better than the old. It had better weight distribution, thanks to a longer wheelbase and wider track, and improved aerodynamics.

The Celica was scheduled to run in 1994, but it ended up making its WRC debut in 1995. In its first few races, the Celica battled with the newly improved Subaru Impreza for the points lead, and Didier Auriol brought home the first win in the 4th round at the Tour de Corse. But for most of the season, the Celica experienced recurring suspension problems, making it difficult for TTE to consistently finish in the points. In the 7th round at Catalonia, the Celica was found to be in violation of the intake restrictor diameter regulation and was stripped of all points for the season. Toyota, angered at this decision, pulled out of the WRC, thus ending the ST205's racing career after just one season.[1]

Although it was only active for a short time, the ST205 proved itself to be a mighty force in the WRC, winning over many fans. When discussing Toyota's rally heritage, the ST205 is one car that must be mentioned.
