Yup, I meant the H3T. Even I haven't seen an H3 SUV yet.

@altohoncho - Good collection you're building up, Nikku Bhai. As an old friend and fellow model collector, can I give you a suggestion?

Stick to models of stock cars as far as possible. These "race tuners" and other stickered up editions are no doubt good eye candy. But trust me, when you have a sizeable collection, then these dolled up cars will dilute the seriousness of your collection to the onlooker and make it look like a kid's toy store.

And if you're doing theme collection, as I am (Mercs only), a dolled up car will stick out like a sore thumb!

@ Dada and Cyrus: Yes it does (but I think only from the rear), actually I was apprehensive in buying this one but then thought of including it as its also one of the most tuned machines for street / rally usage.
I am right now building two collections, Race Tuners and Classics (two different tangents though). If I come across something better in Celica then will exchange this one

I agree dada, but cant help it, as I have a restriction to 1:24s only and maisto/Bburagos are affordably accessible. I have seen amazing 1:24 race tuners from Hot Wheels and Exotic diecast, but they're bomb expensive USD 200 and above.

550/- ... not much and this was the only piece available at that time, It missed the chequered roof tuner variant from Abarth, but I am ok with this one.
