At first glance, it looks like any other modified 2017 Toyota Corolla, but watch it in-action at a Formula Drift event, and you’ll realize it’s a 1,000 horsepower drifting machine. Designed and built by Papadakis Racing, it’s powered by a turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder with nitrous injection generating, mated to a four-speed dog box manual transmission sending power to the rear wheels. Other upgrades include 1050 cc and four 1700 cc injectors,two AEM 380 LPH fuel pumps, a Bryant Racing billet steel crankshaft, 10.5:1 forged JE pistons, Carrillo connecting rods, and a Portflow Design cylinder head.

“Inside, there are two Takata race seats with six-point harnesses, a Papadakis Racing roll cage and a complete fire suppression system. The seller says that during the 2017 season, the RWD Corolla completed roughly 200 laps. If you’re checking your bank account, you’re out of luck as the car was sold on February 22 to the highest bidder for $46,100,” reports Car Scoops.
