Toyota's illustrious rally history dates back to 1972, when the ascendant Japanese automaker partnered with defending Monte Carlo Rally champ Ove Andersson to enter a Celica 1600GT in Britain's grueling RAC Rally. The Celica immediately proved to be a capable rally weapon, carrying Anderson to strong finishes in the 1972 and 1973 runnings of the event. These positive results layed the groundwork for Toyota's European motorsport operations, which would culminate in multiple WRC championships in the 1990s.
The historic Toyota Celica 1600GT TA22 rally car is now offered as a finely detailed 1:18-scale resin model by Ottomobile. Presented in its 1973 RAC Rally livery, Ottomobile's Celica features accurate sponsorship decals and finely rendered exterior details, including prominent rally lighting, fender flares and rubber mudflaps. Otto's TA22 RAC Celica is a must-have for dedicated collectors of historic rally car models!
