The Toyota Gazoo Racing Team Thailand took a class victory with a souped-up Corolla Altis at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring , winning not just once but twice, in 2020 and 2021. To commemorate the win, Toyota Thailand has introduced a new Nürburgring accessory kit for the Corolla Altis which consists of some performance upgrades along with a body kit. According to Toyota, it will be offered for free for most of the variants starting from 1st October.
To begin with, the body kit bears a striking resemblance to the race car especially with elements such as twin nostrils beneath the upper grills, fake rear air vents, split lower grille, and a large rear diffuser. Also part of the kit is a boot lid spoiler, deep front, side and rear skirting, and Nurburgring badge for the front fender.
