Toyota has prepared a Nürburgring Edition for the Corolla built and sold in Thailand.

Using "Corolla" and "Nürburgring" in the same sentence rarely happens, but Toyota Thailand has decided to prepare a special edition 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 ESport version, but adds 17-inch alloys, prominent front bumper and a piano black grille while the rear end hosts a spoiler and a faux diffuser. Inside the cabin it has gained 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 141 HP (104 kW) and 177 Nm (130 lb-ft) channeled to the front wheels through a CVT. 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 granting superior handling compared to the lesser versions.
