Toyota has officially pulled the wraps off the Corolla Nurburgring Edition, which is currently being offered for sale in Thailand, exclusively.
The Japanese based automaker Toyota may have exaggerated a bit with this Corolla Nurburgring Edition as this has been created recently in order to celebrate the 7th place finish for a Toyota Corolla Altis, in its class, at the Nurburgring 24-hour endurance race, this year. Keep in mind that we are not talking about a 1st place and that this is basically a special edition of the Corolla, which is carrying the “Nurburgring” moniker in its name.
The vehicle in question has been based on the ESport version and it is bringing a lot of interesting features such as the piano black grille, the prominent front bumper, the faux diffuser and spoiler at the rear and the 17-inch alloy wheels, to complete its looks. Changes have not stopped here because the cabin has received the red inserts on the dashboard and on the door panels and the black leather wrapped seats.
The paint finishes available for the model include the White Pearl or Black Mica and other changes include revised suspension and handling. Power to the new Toyota Corolla Nurburgring Edition is being provided by the same 1.8 liter four-cylinder engine, which is capable of putting down 141 HP (104 kW) and 177 Nm (130 lb-ft) of torque. This is connected to a CVT, sending power to the front-wheel drive. Additional details on the model are limited at this time.
