Toyota Altis Nürburgring Edition, Just For Thailand
Toyota Thailand has just prepared a special edition Corolla Altis sedan to celebrate the 7th place finish for a Toyota Corolla Altis in its class at last year’s Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race.
This limited-run model is based on the Altis ESport version, but adds 17-inch alloys, prominent front bumper spoiler and a piano black grille while the rear end is fitted with a spoiler and a faux diffuser. Inside the cabin there is black leather-wrapped seats along with red inserts on the door panels and dashboard.
Power comes from the same 4-cylinder 1.8-liter engine developing 141bhp and 177Nm channeled to the front wheels through a CVT (gearbox). Set to be offered in either a Black Mica or White Pearl body paint, the Toyota Corolla ESport Nürburgring Edition will also benefit from a revised suspension which will deliver superior handling compared to the lesser showroom version Altis.
