I always liked the GT-Four's. Carlos Sainz won the WRC Driver Titles in '90 and '92 in his ST185.
If I remember correctly, didn't the Toyota factory team get caught cheating with their turbos, or some piece thereof, that was machined to allow more air intake? I seem to recall reading this some years back and Toyota pulled out of WRC "ashamed"... I know somebody around here must know the story better than I.
