This 2000 Toyota Celica GT-S is a sharp-looking and loaded coupe that reminds you of the time when you could get a sporty car that was also practical and reliable. And that kind of sensibility is only heightened on a well-priced modern classic like this.
The next milestone for this Celica will be the 25-year mark. That's the kind of threshold that gets it ready for things like classic car insurance and antique status in many places. But while this is approaching true classic status, it looks anything but vintage. Toyota delivered one of the most daring designs of the era. The headlights sweep up the bumper and halfway to the windshield. And there are well-chiseled lines that follow this contour through the full front end. The profile is a mix of well-creased lines and gentle contours. The rear bumper seems to bring it all together. So it takes panels that fit this well together to showcase this coupe correctly. That's how you know this has been well-respected over its actual miles life thus far. Even the factory Liquid Silver Metallic paint has the lister of well-kept distinction. And because this is the upper-level GT-S sports version, you get the right extras, like the large rear spoiler and attractive pepper gray 16-inch alloys.
The interior has the clean look of a car that continues to defy age and mileage. So while you may see a few signs of use or someone may ask you what a cassette player is, there is an overall impressiveness to this coupe. And really, what you'll love is how this is a driver's package. That means high-back front bucket seats, a grippy sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a terrific-looking full gauge package. This one is loaded with your favorite features, like power windows, power locks, cruise control, dual airbags, an AM/FM/CD stereo (yes, w/cassette), and a cup holder center console. There is a large power sunroof, and because the factory air conditioning is blowing cold, feel free to open this up for some wind-in-your-hair fun even in the summer.
Under the hood is part of what makes this car so desirable. The 1.8-liter four-cylinder is a 16-valve DOHC motor with modern variable valve timing. This fuel-injected powerhouse is so versatile it was utilized in everything from the Corolla to the Lotus Elise. That means it's both a peppy and fuel-efficient powerhouse. And this is the kind of motor that has earned a nearly indestructible reputation in other Toyotas like the Corolla. This is the sporty GT-S model, and that means extras like steering wheel paddle shifters for the four-speed automatic transmission. And you have a nimble car with fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with the owner's manual, this is the sharp-edged coupe that's a loaded modern classic. So grab this Celica now while it's still so affordable. Call today!!!
