We know we are late to the festival this month, however, the new cars have finally arrived! Check out all the details for Series 23 below. 

 

1973 Toyota Corolla SR5

In 1970, Toyota’s second generation of Corollas arrived and by 1973 that included the SR5 coupe model, which was only made in ’73 and ‘74. Sold in Japan as the Corolla Levin, the SR5 was intended to expand Toyota’s reach into new markets, which explains its unusual-at-the-time design: metal fender flares, unique front struts and springs, and a thicker front sway bar. It sported a 1.6L four-cylinder engine with five-speed transmission.

1974 Toyota Celica GT

The Celica GT was a JDM legend that did much to pioneer the international market for Japanese imports. It was a direct descendant and much more accessible version of the 2000GT and at the time was comparable to the Mustang, which had been reduced in size significantly in recent years. That being said, the Celica only weighed about 2,200lbs, while the Mustang quickly moved on to bigger and heavier engines. The Celica housed a 2.0L four-cylinder that put out 90 hp (versus the Mustang’s 105 hp).

1989 Toyota MR2 SC

Dubbed a “budget exotic car”, the Mister Two was Toyota’s mid-engine entry in the late 80’s. It featured the familiar 4A-GE engine found in the AE86; a 16-valve, twin-cam 1.6-liter inline-four and in 1989, a supercharger that bumped it up to 145 hp and shaved a second off of it’s 0-60 time. That supercharger required certain aspects of the MR2, such as the springs and wheels, to be reinforced, plus the addition of raised vents on the engine cover.

1995 Toyota MR2 GT

In 1991, the MR2 received a full redesign that made it sportier and more Ferrari-like in appearance. By ‘95, due to rising prices and insurance premiums, it was ending its production run, making this model especially prized by collectors. The GT featured a 2.0 L 200 hp five-speed engine mounted behind the seats that put it on equal footing with cars like the Ferrari 348. The MR2 name would make its return when Toyota attached it to the Spyder convertible.
