• Toyota Celica to be replaced in 2009

The current generation Celica was taken out of production in 2005. But Toyota has good news for European sports car lovers: a replacement is under development and will be unveiled in 2009.

The new car is part of a plan for sportier models. The Lexus IS-F, which will be introduced in March 2008, will become the company’s flagship model.

The 2009 Celica will have a top speed of 270km/h rather than the traditional 250km/h. Lexus also will introduce a new sports car in 2009 based on the LF-A concept.
