In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the description page in GT5. It is transcluded from here.



With the second generation Celica appearing in 1977, there was a range-topping model called the Celica XX, equipped with an inline-6 cylinder engine and a 'Liftback' body. July 1981 was when this XX received a full model change. It is said that the XX name was given to rival the popularity of the Nissan Fairlady Z.

The design of the new XX was cutting edge, based on linear motifs. It brings to mind images of Lotus cars of the day, who had a co-operative relationship with Toyota at the time. The body was 183.4 inches long, with a width of 66.3 inches, that's 8.2 inches longer and 0.7 inches wider than the previous model. Though there were parts common with the previous Celica, it was made distinctive with retractable headlights, giving it the appearance of a longer nosed, short deck design.

The interior was modern, based on linear motifs as well. The seats were an adjustable sport type, and the entire car had a sporty and luxurious feel to it.

The engine was only available in an inline-6. At first, there was a 2.0-litre SOHC from the Mark II, and a 2.8-litre DOHC from the Soarer. The 2.0-litre produced 133 BHP, and the 2.8-litre produced 168 BHP. For the suspension, the front utilised struts, and the rear semi-trailing arms. This set-up was shared with the Soarer, but was tuned for more controllability.

The XX gained in appeal with new engines that were added at every minor change. First, a 143 BHP 2.0-litre SOHC turbo was introduced in 1982, and later a 158 BHP 2.0-litre DOHC. Additionally in 1983, the power was raised to 158 BHP for the turbo model by utilising an intercooler. The XX continued to be produced even after the base Celica went through a full model change in 1986, and was popular as Toyota's high class GT car.
