From the PublisherReview from Banzai Magazine, October 2007 - UK magazine
It's worth reminding ourselves that the Toyota Celica was the first Japanese car to claim victory in the WRC. Have you ever wondered how that was achieved; how the Celica developed from the Coke bottle-shaped car of the seventies to the wedge-shaped car of the noughties; and how the Supra developed from a spin-off model to the manufacturers top performance icon? All this and much, much more is chronicled and illustrated in Brian Long's latest year-by-year reference work entitled Celica & Supra – The book of Toyota's sports coupés. This 224-page book from Veloce Publishing costs just £19.99 and is available direct from the publisher or from any good book shop.

If you're driving a Toyota Celica or Toyota Supra, this is your Bible. 'Celica & Supra: The book of Toyota's sports coupés' will tell you all you ever wanted to know about the two performance-bred cars. Dating back to its introduction in 1970, the book gives you the low-down about the Celica's rally and racing history, along with the Supra's many race guises. To top it off, there's comprehensive coverage of both models in their road-going formats as well.

Pictured on the front cover of this 224 page paperback is a bright red Toyota Celica, the last version of the Japanese coupé to be made before being withdrawn from the market last year. The Celica was an extremely popular car amongst the rally fraternity as it was the first Japanese model to win the World Rally Championship title. With acclaimed motoring historian Brian Long as its author, the book tells the full story of the seven Celica generations (from 1970) and that of its close sibling, the Supra. Written with the full support from Toyota HQ in Japan, this is truly the definitive history of these sporting Toyotas. Apart from the front cover, there are 599 other color photographs. Also included are the models advertising campaigns and brochures from down through the various ranges.
