Toyota Converts Corolla Sedan into Jaw-Dropping Coupe

TORRANCE, Calif., (November 1, 2016)—Globally, Toyota sells approximately 1.5 million Corollas a year, but the world has never seen anything like the one-of-a-kind XTREME Corolla unveiled during Toyota’s press conference this morning at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.

BUILD VISION AND INSPIRATION – Toyota teamed up with Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs to create this XTREME Corolla. No stone was left unturned in the dynamic design of the XTREME Corolla. Even the interior has been retrofitted with a one-of-a-kind floating center console and an extensive JBL audio system. The build pays tribute to the heritage of the iconic brand while taking cues from the sport compact genre. This transformation is most evidenced by the conversion of the car from a 4-door sedan to a 2-door sports coupe. Designed to turn heads, this XTREME Corolla clearly demonstrates that Corollas can be functional and cool at the same time.
