Toyota’s latest hot-hatch, the GR Corolla, is finally coming to Gran Turismo 7. But there’s a catch…
Announced today (14th of July 2023), the Toyota GR Corolla forms the basis of Round 7 of the Toyota GAZOO Racing GT Cup set to take place on the 27th of August around Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.
However, it’s not the standard GR Corolla GT7 players can look forward, it’s a one-of-200 special called the Morizo Edition, and it won’t be purchasable from Brand Central until September.
Intended as a limited-run track car, Toyota has stripped out the back seats on a standard GR Corolla, shortened its gear ratios, increased its rigidity and gave the car a racier tune-up to make it handle better than ever.
Toyota’s ebullient president – and amateur racing driver – Akio Toyoda is the inspiration behind the car’s name, driving in races under the pseudonym Morizo Kinoshita (hence the Morizo Edition). Toyoda helped develop the car, following on from his heavy involvement in the Toyota GR Yaris programme.
The Toyota GR Corolla Morizo Edition ‘22 will be available to purchase from GT7’s in-game Brand Central at the end of September, but it will be freely available to sample in practice mode from the 7th of August ahead of its Toyota GAZOO Racing GT Cup bow.
As an added bonus, players who have participated in any of the seven rounds of the TGR GT Cup Online Qualifying will receive the new car as a gift on the 28th of August.
