Japan's Super Silhouettes race series debuted in 1979 as a sort of counterpart to Europe's Group 5 competition. Based very loosely on production cars, the Super Silhouettes featured outrageously flared bodywork, huge wings, and turbocharged engines capable of massive horsepower numbers, a combination that would influence an entire generation of "bosozoku" tuner cars in Japan. An early favorite in Super Silhouette racing was the Toyota Celica LB Turbo, which scored a win in the 1979 Fuji Inter 200 Mile event at the hands of Nobuhide Tachi, a co-founder of the TOM'S Racing Team. This historic Japanese race car is the subject of a brilliant 1:43-scale resin replica by Spark. It features remarkably detailed race livery, rims, and aerodynamic components, while capturing the Celica Super Silhouette's complex body shape to perfection. Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, the Celica LB Turbo Super Silhouette by Spark is certain to be a coveted model by JDM enthusiasts everywhere.
