The Toyota 88C is a sports car prototype built in 1988 by Toyota according to the Group C specification, to race the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Japanese Sports-Prototype Championship. The car, designed by Dome, was powered by a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, named "3S-GT", a 2.1-liter, water cooled, 680-hp, 16 valves aluminium head, unit. The chassis was an aluminium monocoque, and the composite bodywork was made of carbon fiber and kevlar.

In 1989, one of these cars was entered in the IMSA GTP championship, a category with rules which were very similar to those of Group C in Europe, by All American Racers, Dan Gurney's (an American racing legend who won Le Mans in 1967) team. The new model reproduces the car that took part to the 24 Hours of Daytona, driven by Drake Olson, Chris Cord and Steve Bren. All American Racers, using this engine as a development base, was later (1992, 1993) able to claim, with the Eagle MKIII, two IMSA titles, two victories at Sebring and one in Daytona.

A mi este toyota me encanta. Sobre todo las ópticas delanteras que tienen un poso 70´s importante. Slot it me tiene enamorado, la verdad. Poco a poco voy haciéndome con referencias. El Chaparral me tiene enamorado.
