TOYOTA Corolla WRC Re-CreationAdvert ID: 44540 €71,000 EUR
A fabulous recreation of Toyota Corolla World Rally Car built by Dunev Motor Sport one of the foremost experts in building and preparing Racing Vehicles. The vehicle is based upon the 1997 E110 version of Toyota Corolla road car.
The original TOYOTA Corolla WRC was introduced in July 1997 and made its debut at the 1997 Rally Finland with Didier Auriol and Marcus Grönholm behind the wheel. The car was powerd by a modified 3SGTE engine with water cooled turbo system producing 299 bhp. For the 1998 WRC season the TOYOTA TEAM EUROPE was joint by Carlos Sainz and Louis Moya who won the 1998 Rally Monte Carlo. Didier Auriol won the 1999 China Rally and TOYOTA won the 1999 manufacturer’s title.
The power unit of our re-created car is a fully forged 2.0 liter, 4 cylinder 3SGTE-4 GEN engine fitted with CP pistons, EAGLE forged conrods, ACL main and big end bearings, COMETIC RACING headgasket.
TOYOTA CT15B turbocharger at 1.4 boost, FORGE intercooler, and custom made cooling system with race spec aluminum tank, K&N filter and DTA Pro Series ECU producing 300 bhp.
The gearbox is an E151F from Celica GT4 Carlos Sainz ST-185 and permanent AWD. The vehicle is fitted with sold-mounted subframes, solid top-mounts, hand built Fortune Auto Coilovers made specifically for the vehicle, lower arms with poly bushes, poly-bushed front and rear anti-roll bars, Chromium-molybdenum 4 point roll cage, 5 x 100 hub carriers, 315mm front brakes, 310mm rear brakes and REVOLUTION 7.5 x 18 Rally wheels with MICHELIN tires.
The interior is custom made hand stitched with alcantara all around featuring the TTE logo, DYNAMAT XTREME insolation, KONIG race seats with OMP seatbelt harness, OMP Rally 3 spoke steering wheel, RACE TECHNOLOGY Dash 2 and a DRIFT BOX.
Dunev Motor Sport carefully researched the external presentation of the original vehicle and in addition to the improved power output an aggressive custom made aerodynamic kit was installed featuring distinctive rear spoiler, front fenders, rear panels, front and rear bumpers, roof scoop and of course the TTE WRC door mirrors as well an aluminum skid plate under the engine. The San Remo 1997 debut livery was carefully replicated as well by our team.
The small numbers of competition cars around 100 ever build and the fact that TOYOTA never made a road legal version makes the ownership of such vehicle a privilege that only a few can enjoy.
The car that we have custom build is a daily usable re-creation of the WRC legend and our personal tribute to the Rally sport.
