MAT - Makela Auto Tuning
by IKE 29-May-2010 10:10

This photo of a Group B Toyota Celica could have been taken on TTE in the 80's but it is actually a sample of the excellent work of Mäkelä Auto-Tuning from Finland. Founded by Kari Mäkelä in 1978 as a racing team, MAT has enjoyed success in local rallying championships and apart from preparing racing cars (mostly for rallying) it also does great restorations.---

These photos are a small glimpse from the restoration of a Group B Toyota Celica. The car was in very bad condition after years of racing and neglect but after a lot of hard work it is restored in a condition that is probably better than its original. MAT covers every area of racing car preparation or a historic car restoration with great attention to detail. Everything, from the differential to the interior carpet is renewed always with respect to the original.

This Celica is just one of their many projects, you can take a look at their website where every project is widely documented by many photos:
