"A dream car that converts the durable RSC coupé into a rally spec machine."
Designed by the company's CALTY Design Research facility in Newport Beach, California, and debuting at the 2001 Tokyo Motor Show, the Toyota RSC ("Rugged Sport Coupe") was a rally racing-inspired concept car that looked ready to do battle in the African desert in the legendary Paris-Dakar Rally, and quite possibly the inspiration for BMW's X6 model.
Looking a bit like a muscular version of the Toyota Celica, this concept car measured 162 inches long, 72.8 inches wide and a somewhat tallish 61 inches in height. But its pugnacious front end and blistered wheel wells made room for large 19-in. wheels for increased stability on or off the road. Under its muscular exterior resided numerous components sourced from the Toyota Celica GT-Four rally racer. A full 414 HP (with the air restrictor removed) was provided by Toyota's turbocharged 3S-GE 2-liter DOHC inline-4 beneath the wide hood.
Like many rally cars, the RSC featured an all-wheel-drive system, accompanied in this instance with a conventional center differential (today's competition cars in the top-flight World Rally Championship use sophisticated active electronic differentials for maximum tractability). Other elements for off-road travel included a raised ride height, beefed-up suspension arms, springs and shocks all around. You never know what you'll encounter cruising at high speed in the middle of nowhere.
