The Celica XX (pronounced as "double X") is the Japanese domestic market name of the MKI and MKII Toyota Celica Supra. It was offered in Japan during the years 1978-1986, with it being redesigned in 1981. The Supra was sold as the Celica XX only in Japan, although they remain popular as Grey imports to New Zealand.

The 2000GT was the flagship model of the XX range. Featuring the smaller 2.0 litre 6 cylinder DOHC 24 valve 1G-EU, Yamaha took the base 1G-EU and improved it, resulting in the 1G-GEU significantly upping the output of the engine, which also served in the 85 Toyota Soarer. The smaller capacity engine meant taxes were less than the bigger 5MGEU of the 2800GT. 1GGEU made 160 PS (118 kW) at 6400 rpm.

The 2800GT was the most powerful of the range, featuring the 2.8 litre 6 cylinder DOHC 5M-GE (5MGEU later years)making 175 PS (129 kW) at 5,600 rpm.

The 2000G/S with M-TEU with intercooler made 160 PS (118 kW) at 5400 rpm, as much as the 1GGEU, but made more torque lower down the rev range, 23.5 m·Kgf (230 Newton metre at 3000 rpm.

The lower range models, being 2000G/S, were the least powerful, featuring the 1G-EU, which made a meagre 125 PS (92 kW) at 5,400 rpm. They also lacked a lot of features found on other models, making them more affordable.
