530-HP Widebody Toyota GR Yaris Is A Wicked Hot Hatch

These mods were all installed when the owner used it as a show car, which will hopefully change with its new focus on performance. The interior also hosts Recaro seats, a Haltech digital dash, and a Coolerworx short throw shifter. The next mod the owner plans to install is a sequential gearbox, which, according to him, would complete the build.

The owner claimed his 530-hp Toyota GR Yaris costs £130,000 (approx. $165,500) to build, an eye-watering figure that could buy you four GR Corollas or a brand new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS.

While we don’t get the GR Yaris stateside, the multitude of reliable big-horsepower builds we’ve seen give us hope of some mega local builds based on the GR Corolla. While it utilizes a different platform, the G16E-GTS engine and AWD system are shared, meaning what works for one should work for the other.
