This Monstrous TA22 Toyota Celica Packs A V8 And A GT-R AWD System

With V8 power and the all-wheel drive system from a Nissan GT-R, this 1000bhp TA22 Celica is the best kind of mongrel!

Remind me later

We’re willing to be you haven’t seen a classic Celica quite like this one.

‘Frankenstein’s Monster’ is a pretty apt description for this 1971 example, as sitting under the bonnet is a turbocharged 4.0-litre Toyota/Lexus V8, hooked up to a sequential gearbox and the all-wheel drive system from a Nissan R35 GT-R. Oh, and it also features a smattering of R34 bits for good measure.
