Inthe Corolla became the best selling nameplate in the worldsurpassing the Volkswagen Beetle.NFS Most Wanted - Toyota Corolla GT-S (AE86) Tuning \u0026 Gameplay [1440p60]
The name Corolla is part of Toyota's naming tradition of using names derived from the Toyota Crown for sedans, with " corolla " Latin for "small crown". From to in Japan and much of the world, and from to in Taiwan, the hatchback companion had been called the Toyota Auris.
Early models were mostly rear-wheel drivewhile later models have been front-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive versions have also been produced. The Corolla's chassis designation code is "E", as described in Toyota's chassis and engine codes.
Corollas are manufactured in Japan at the original Takaoka plant built in The first Corolla generation was introduced in November with the new cc K pushrod engine. The Corolla Sprinter was introduced as the fastback version inand exclusive to a Toyota Japan dealership retail outlet called Toyota Auto Store. In Maythe E20 was restyled with a more rounded body. The now mutually exclusive Corolla and Sprinter names were used to differentiate between two slightly different treatments of sheet metal and trim.
The Corolla Levin and Sprinter Trueno names were introduced as the enhanced performance version of the Corolla and Sprinter respectively when a double overhead camshaft version of the 2T engine was introduced in March TE In Australia, only the 1. The brakes were single system with no booster, solid discs on the front and rear drums.
Front sway bar but no rear sway bar. Parts are not compatible with later models. Most models stopped production in July but the KE26 wagon and van were still marketed in Japan alongside the new series, until production finally ended in May April brought rounder, bigger and heavier Corollas and Sprinters.
The range was rounded out with the addition of a two-door liftback. The Corollas were given E30 codes while the Sprinters were given E40 codes. A face-lift in March saw most Corolla E30 models replaced by equivalent E50 models and most Sprinter E40 models were replaced by equivalent E60 models. The E30 Corolla was fitted with retracting front seat belts. All had 3K engines and K40 manual gearbox or 3 speed Auto. Sprinters were not available. Later KE5x models were available as 4 door sedan or 2 door coupe A true pillar-less design with 4K engine.
Later KE55 also used plastic ended bumper bars as opposed to the all chrome bumpers of the previous models, but included a rear sway bar for the first time. A major restyle in March  brought a square edged design.
The Corollas had a simpler treatment of the grill, headlights and taillights while the Sprinter used a slightly more complex, sculptured treatment. The new A series engines were added to the range as a running change. This was the last model to use the K "hicam" and T series engines. Fuel injection was introduced as an extra cost option on Japanese market vehicles.
The wagon and van continued to be made until June after the rest of the range was replaced by the E80 generation.
A sloping front bonnet and a contemporary sharp-edged, no-frills style was brought in during May The new cc 1C diesel engine was added to the range with the E80 Series. Fromre-badged E80 Sprinters were sold in the U.Coronavirus update: New contactless services to help keep you safe. Response at the time I was lookat this one very important for me. The car is over priced for what's all wrong with the car. Transmission is shot, the wheel is screwed up, no heat Not worth test driving.
No one was there when I arrived and a day later they kept emailing me. Save your gas they have 3 cars. They have quite reasonably priced cars on lot. Went there to test drive Toyota Priusand the guy who attended me was quite helpful.
He took my DL and then handed me the keys and told me to test drive as a I like.
I test drove two Prius, and he furnished car fax reports. Overall nice experience. Vehicle pricing was good. Up front about condition of vehicles. We enjoyed the salesmanship that knew the answer to my questions also had a reading print out about some of the past use and damage to the car.
The car was clean also they fix the minor problems. I could not ask for more. Price listed is after every possible discount, which not everyone qualifies for. But the customer service was excellent!
Walked away with a good feeling. I asked for a picture of the car. The salesperson only showed me the picture of the steering wheel. Terrible experience. Made an appointment to see vehicle and they sold it before I arrived and never notified me.
They called, were courteous and professional. Car sold before I got to the dealership and they called me back to let me know so I appreciate that.The AE86's affordability and driving traits made it a popular choice in motorsports and a favourite by car enthusiasts.
Ina modern reinterpretation of the AE86 was introduced which was jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru. Although it is the slowest car with standard performance in the game, the Corolla GT-S is also one of the best handling cars in the game. With upgrades, it can become competitive throughout the career mode. Once fully upgraded, the Corolla will also receive outstanding straight-line performance. It cannot be purchased in the career mode nor modified by the player and can only be selected in Quick Race mode with stock appearance in white and as a visually modified variant in red.
The Corolla GT-S has formidable acceleration and handles well in corners but is only capable of an average top speed. Given its light chassis and rear-wheel drive layout, the Corolla GT-S has notable handling characteristics: It responds quickly to steering inputs by the player and rarely loses grip. This makes the GT-S particularly useful in difficult race tracks and drift events as its handling makes long and smooth drifts possible.
The GT-S has moderate acceleration in consequence of a small four-cylinder engine, which delivers a low top speed and underwhelming performance when driving uphill but can be greatly improved with upgrades.
It also fares well in Wheelie Competitions due to its low weight. It is rated 1 in speed, 2 in both acceleration and handling, and 3 in both drifting and strength. It is capable of a Works conversion. Since August 22,it has been featured as a D class car.
The Corolla GT-S is slower than any other tier 1 starter car in terms of power. However, this trait was compensated with a superior handling. Compared to more expensive D class cars, its acceleration might be lacking. Similar to the Nissan Silvia S15it also fares well in higher classes, as long as upgrades are regularly applied. It is less useful in pursuits events due to its small chassis, although lower heat level events can be completed successfully.
The Black style is an Amerikon Speedsystems performance tuned speedboost car that costs It was made available on December 16, The White style is a rotationally available stock cash car that costsand was initially released on May 14, during the fourth closed beta session. Before August 22nd,it could be purchased at Driver Level 1 and cost 20, The Lank style is a rental car that can be leased for It was made available on June 28, during the sixth closed beta session.
It is fitted with various Street quality performance parts from different manufacturers, and a selection of aftermarket parts. The Lank style is a previous rental only car that can be purchased forIt was made available on June 1, as part of the End of the World event. The C-Spec style is a Best in Class car that costs It was initially released on December 21, as a top-up gift, and was later made available in the car dealer on January 27, It is fitted with varying quality performance parts from different manufacturers, 3-star Skill Modsand a selection of aftermarket parts.
The standard variant is unlocked by beating five objectives in the Underground Playlist. The Tier 3 variant is unlocked by beating twelve Autolog recommendations. Both cars' handling is rated as Challenging. The tier 1 Corolla GT-S's engine delivers bhp at 10, rpm.
It goes from mph in 6. The tier 3 Corolla GT-S's engine delivers bhp at 6, rpm.During the golden era of "import tuning" I'm gonna call it at around ''05it wouldn't have been terribly hard to lay your hands on an AEgeneration Toyota Corolla like this for a fairly reasonable price. Today, these are damn near extinct and will set you back a pretty penny, no matter if you're looking for a showroom specimen or a junker to restore.
So imagine being able to build a project of this caliber in ' It was seen around SoCal often, and its owner, Allen Lugue, became well known for sourcing the very parts that made it legendary.
And then one day it simply disappeared. That is, until late last year when it resurfaced like Bigfoot. Though it's been out of public view for close to a decade, Allen's Corolla remains virtually untouched, as if released from a time capsule for automotive millennials to enjoy. Of course, this makes the car eve rarer and more special than ever, which is why it deserved a long overdue visit from us. The most important feature on this car comes along with the best backstory: the Run Free aero.
Toyota Corolla GT-S
Don't know what Run Free is? To AE86 enthusiasts, the name Running Free represents a legendary drift team in Japan, and one of its members, Koichi Yamashita, owns a small shop bearing a slightly similar name: Run Free.
To everyone in the Japanese drift and AE86 communities, Yamashita-san is one of the most well-known and respected names, period—and as a real AE86 enthusiast, he knows a thing or two about how to make them look good, real good.
The front and rear bumper replacements and revised fenders all work harmoniously with the other Run Free body parts side skirts and carbon-fiber hood to help transform it into the ultimate AE Ask any 86 owner and he'll collectively agree. Now, sourcing a Run Free kit isn't hard, but they're costly, not to mention expensive to have shipped over. Back in '04, when Do-Luck USA was around, the company was an official distributor for Run Free and Goodline, another body kit producer that's no longer in existence.
Yamashita-san overnighted the parts from Japan and the rest is history. We're both happy and relieved to see a Corolla like this back on the streets where it belongs. It's too good to keep a secret, and a damn shame to be kept under wraps. That's partly the reason why I started taking my own EF Civic out again, not just for the driving, but to stay connected to the car community as a whole, just like Allen's taken a liking to again.
He says, "I brought it out because the newer and younger generation of car enthusiasts should be able to see and appreciate a piece of tuning history. Eiji Daito's goals for his Toyota Corolla were simple: "Build a cool car, to get people's attention. But the truth is Rene drives it every chance he gets.
It should because it is Drift King, Keiichi Tsuchiya's personal car.There was a time when engines with fuel injection, double overhead cams, and four valves per cylinder could be found only in breathlessly expensive cars built in tiny volumes by manufacturers most car people worshiped as gods.
When GM tried to mass-produce such technology, the experiment ended in dismal failure. The General went off to lick its wounds and forced American car owners to do penance by selling them tired old four-bangers Iron Dukes that should have been retired when spats went out of vogue.
It doesn't do our national pride much good to know that it took Toyota to mass-produce a truly sophisticated engine and to get it right the first time. What we're talking about, of course, is the 4A-GE four-valve, twin-cam four-cylinder. This 1. Now the same powerplant has found a home in the engine bay of the front-drive Corolla FX16, a car that defines the term "pocket rocket. Most carmakers would shuffle around and give you a million reasons why it would be impossible to transplant a four-valve head onto any particular engine or to put a four-valve engine into another chassis.
They'd bring up market studies, cost considerations, engineering problems, and the big-time equivalents of "My dog ate my homework. Toyota, on the other hand, seems to be run by a bunch of gonzo back-yard tinkerers who happen to have all the money and engineering resources in the world to pull off any kind of car that strikes their fancy. You can imagine these guys bench-racing over Sapporo beers and asking one another, "Hey, wouldn't it be neat to.
The FX16 treatment seems to be the product of such a session. It doesn't exactly make for the kind of car that will stop your heart or have a great impact on the evolution of the automobile.
Although Novas and FX16s will be rolling out of the same building, Toyota emphatically states that the FX16 will be strictly a Toyota model; it will not be sold in Chevy dealerships. It will go on sale this September and will be offered in but one body style: a three-door hatchback that is halfway between a feisty fastback and an everyday econobox in shape. Two trim levels will be available: base and GT-S.
Obviously, this isn't a high-volume car for Toyota, but it is an excellent end run around the voluntary quota system, which limits the number of cars Toyota can import from Japan. The heart and soul of the FX16 is its motor. The 1. Interestingly, when this same engine is assigned to duty in the MR2 and the rear-drive GT-S, it produces hp. Toyota attributes the modest power loss to a redesign of the four's intake and exhaust manifolds, which had to be modified to fit in this Corolla's engine compartment.
Except for plumbing, however, the 4A-GE engine is unchanged. The redline remains at the blender-level rpm. The gearbox is so slick, as we've come to expect from Toyota, that it feels as if it were machined from solid billets of Teflon. We wonder what kind of shift-mechanism secrets Toyota possesses that the rest of the car world can't seem to copy. The five-speed is further blessed with close-ratio gears, exploiting the engine's high-revving capabilities.
An automatic transmission is available as an option, but no FX16 so equipped was available during our brief test sessions with the new Toyotas. The automatic is an electronically controlled four-speed, with a lockup torque converter that engages in second, third, and fourth gears.
It's also equipped with a button that changes the shift points on demand. In the meditation mode, the transmission upshifts at lower rpm, improving fuel economy; in the banzai mode, shifts occur at higher rpm, improving both your quarter-mile ET and your spirits.
The suspension has been substantially improved over any previous Corolla's.By posting your comment you agree to our house rules.
