1975 Toyota Corolla Gets a Lexus V8

You can't call this thing an old economy car.

There’s nothing about this car that was done purely for style. Everything, inside and out, is entirely there for function. This was once nothing more than a 1975 Toyota Corolla, a solid economy car for its day. But one guy, who just so happens to like old Corollas, had something very different in mind when he set out to build this award-winning auto cross racer. It’s been completely stripped of just about all of its original guts, and in their place a fully modern engine and gearbox has been fitted.

It now has a supercharged Lexus V8 that, according to its owner, produces somewhere between 300-400 horsepower, as well as a six-speed manual and Lexus front and rear suspension. Join Matt Farah as he takes this insane Corolla for a mountain drive.
