Gretar Karlsson is a mechanic and fabricator in Reykjavik, Iceland and is responsible for building this Toyota Corolla KE70. Power comes from a 3.0 L 2JZ-GTE VVTi inline-six that features a BorgWarner S360 turbocharger, Bosch 1000 cc injectors, and VEMS standalone ECU. The combo produces 579 hp and 703 Nm to the wheels on 1.6 bar of boost and 98 octane fuel. Behind the engine sits an adapter plate, BMW GSX-53DZ six-speed transmission, and Toyota Hilux 8″ rear end. The car rides on Nissan S13 suspension and hubs with aftermarket coilovers. Chris Forsberg recently took the Corolla out for some drifting while visiting Iceland.

    The stretched tires in the last picture made me throw up in my mouth a little.
    People who do this need to be hit in the head with a large wrench.
