Today Toyota officially announced its return to the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). Over the next two years Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG) will continue its test programme with the Yaris WRC car to prepare for a full return to the series in 2017.
After a gruelling 14 days racing across 9,000 km of torturous stages, the 2015 Dakar Rally has come to an end, marking a tremendous two weeks for the Toyota entries with three Hiluxes finishing in the overall top ten, and Toyotas securing all three podium places in the Production category.
How do you sum up in one word a car that has achieved the status of legend the world over – durable, rugged, reliable, unbreakable? The Land Cruiser is all of these and more.
With a name that means ‘Celestial’ or ‘Heavenly’ in Spanish, the minute the Celica turned a wheel it was destined to be a star; no-one realised it would go on to shine brightly for 35 years, span seven generations and, for many people, become a car that was truly out of this world.
