Unveiling the VERY Exclusive Toyota GR Corolla MORIZO Edition at McPhillips ToyotaApr 14th, 2023
This week, everyone at McPhillips Toyota was beyond excited to be part of unveiling the exclusive Toyota GR Corolla MORIZO Edition, an ultra-rare and highly coveted rally-inspired sports car. This limited production vehicle is one of only 200 produced worldwide, with Canada receiving a mere nine units. The contest was targeted at all Canadian auto enthusiasts, and a lucky Winnipeg winner was selected to purchase this exclusive car.
The winner, a long-time member of the Winnipeg Sports Car Club, is also the Rookie Mentor and Instructor for Winnipeg Autoslalom. He has participated locally in both Time Attack at Gimli Motorsports Park and Autoslalom at St. Andrews Airport, and his current vehicle is a 2017 Ford Focus RS. It’s no surprise that he was chosen to purchase the Toyota GR Corolla MORIZO Edition, given his passion and skills in the autocross community.
At McPhillips Toyota, we are thrilled to have been chosen as the delivering Dealer for this exclusive vehicle. As a dealership that supports Winnipeg Autoslalom and the Winnipeg Sports Car Club, we are honoured to have a local member win the opportunity to purchase such a rare car. Our General Manager, Ryan James, is also an active member of the Winnipeg Sports Car Club and Winnipeg Autoslalom, making this win all the more special for us.
The Toyota GR Corolla MORIZO Edition is a stunning vehicle, with its rally-inspired design and high-performance capabilities. It features a turbocharged engine producing 300-horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, a six-speed manual transmission, and GR-tuned suspension and brakes. The car is named after Toyota’s former CEO and passionate motorsports enthusiast, Akio Toyoda, who goes by the nickname “Morizo.”
This exclusive vehicle is a true testament to Toyota’s commitment to creating high-performance cars that can be enjoyed by auto enthusiasts. At McPhillips Toyota, we are honoured to be a part of this exclusive launch and to have been chosen as the delivering Dealer for such a rare and special vehicle.
