The Toyota Corolla WRC (World Rally Car) is special purpose rally car based on the European MK-VIII Corolla 3 door Hatchback, and powered by a modified 3S-GTE engine and 4WD system from the Toyota Celica GT-Four ST205.
It was launched in July 1997, and made its debut in the 1997 Rally of Finland with 1994 World Rally Champion, Didier Auriol, and Marcus Grönholm behind the wheel.
For 1998 WRC season, double World Rally Champions Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya joined the Toyota Team Europe, and won the 1998 Monte Carlo Rally. It was the first victory for the Corolla WRC. Didier Auriol won the 1999 China Rally, and Toyota won the 1999 manufacturer's title while the company stopped participating in rallying, in order to prepare for a switch to Formula One in 2002. Then returned in rally in 2016 Season with Yaris WRC as Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT. Car has no liveries making it first rally car made by me have no liveries. Same work as done in Celica ST185 model as Fog lamps attached with hood to make it openable instead of attaching it with bumper. Base road model produced between 1995-2002 but rally variant used in 1998-1999.
