Rod Millen's Toyotas Tacoma and Celica, at Goodwood festival of speed. The Tacoma Pikes Peak was buildt in 1998 and can hit 60 MPH in 1.6 seconds thanks to a 1,000 HP 2.1-liter engine; 125 MPH in 4.9 seconds. The Celica has about the same engine, with a little less power (probably around 850 hp), witch makes it more driveable; this is the car that allowed Rod Millen to set the record of the 156 turn, 12.42 mile (19.99 kilometer) Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in 1994, with the time of 10:04:06, unbeaten untill 2007, when Monster Tajima beaten it with his Suzuki Escudo Pikes Peak. Both Toyotas are of course four wheel drive, with Turbo and Intercooler, and weight less than 900 kilos (2000 lbs).
