Recent Buyer Review – Simon Welsh on 1st May “Found my ideal 90’s sports car on Trade Classics. Living in Bournemouth and the car being in the Midlands I relied heavily on the advert, photos and videos.
On picking the car up I wasn’t disappointed. Everything was as it had been described. So I got straight into it and drove home. What a drive put a smile on my face.
Thanks very much Trade Classics and I’m now looking out for my next classic to add to the collection.”.

Peter has owned the car since 1995 and has a wealth of history that describes the maintenance of the car. After owning a yellow Celica beforehand he saw the opportunity to trade it in with a reputable sports car dealer after earning more money as a pilot driving long haul flights. He used the car as a primary vehicle before using it more sparingly recently.
He is clearly a passionate rally enthusiast after owning the limited edition car for such a long time and is looking for a new owner who shares the same passion as himself. Please review all photos and videos that Peter has sent us to judge the full condition of the car for yourself.
The car really looks stunning in bright red paintwork with sportier features than the common GT4. Contrasting with its rally-style wheels, this looks to be a highly desirable car with rally racing in its DNA.
Wheels & Tyres
The Dymag performance wheels look to be in a condition that matches the car’s mileage, and the car comes with the original wheels as part of the deal too. The tread of the tyres should be reviewed by the new owner.
With improved, lighter bumpers applied to this homologation special, the bodywork maintains a good condition without the presence of any bumps or dents.
The bright red colour of the car looks stunning, however, the car has some scratched areas most notably below the windscreen and beside the nearside door panel.
Glass and Trim
Both remain in very good condition.
The ’90s essence of the car has been maintained in very good condition and provides a simplicity that you do not get with modern cars of today. Please review all the photos and our ‘Interior Review’ video.
Seats and Carpets
The fabric of the seats looks to be in very good condition with all stitching still intact. The carpets will need a quick clean for them to look as good as new.
The dials look to be in good condition whilst the material and all buttons around the driver’s seat clean and ready to be used.
Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
Both are in a fair condition of the car’s mileage that shows the car to have been enjoyed over the years.
The 2.0L turbocharged straight-four engine won not only many victories on the rallying stage, but also the hearts and minds of every passionate enthusiast. Please review all the photos that show the condition of the engine and the underside mechanical structure of the car.
Engine and Gearbox
The engine was capable of achieving over 200hp whilst the gearbox has a synchromesh applied to the second and third gear.
Suspension and Brakes
Peter assures that the brakes and suspension are in good condition and function well on the roads.
Electrics and Other
Peter maintains the electrics work as expected on the vehicle.
As mentioned, Peter has owned the vehicle since 1995 and has kept a wealth of history in regards to the maintenance of the vehicle. This Celica GT4 Turbo Carlos Sainz is no. 2825 of 5,000 (3,000 for the UK market). The cam belts and oil pump were changed during February 2016.
