Corolla AE86 Drift URAS Trueno GT APEX

Spotted nestled away at this year’s TRAX event at Silverstone was this awesome looking AE86 Corolla Trueno GT APEX.

SR86 Monkey Magic TRD

Sporting a Monkey Magic front bumper, GT Apex sideskirts, wide arches and a set of white 16×8 ET+10 Rota Grid Drifts it has a mean and purposeful stance.

AE86 TRD Ducktail Drift Corolla

The back end is nicely finished off by TRD Carbon spats and a TRD ducktail spoiler. You may have spotted something hiding behind the front bumper hinting that 86-heads should look away now….

Nissan SR20 AE86 SR86

At the heart of the little Corolla sits a rebuilt Nissan SR20DET engine. Tweaked with a 1.2mm Cosworth metal headgasket and a top mounted T28 turbo. Plenty enough power to send the Toyota sideways under a curtain of smoke. The ‘SR86’ is becoming a popular engine/chassis combo in the drift world, Corolla with the added bonus of tyre smoke can’t be a bad thing!
