This is Toyota’s latest entry into the Super 2000 Rally, based on the new Toyota Auris, also known as the Corolla hatchbacks in other markets like Australia. The 1,133kg front wheel drive vehicle is powered by a 2.0 litre normally aspirated engine that revs up to 8,500rpm and makes 255 horsepower, which is really a pretty impressive horsepower to displacement ratio.

The new Toyota Corolla Super 2000 Rally Car will make it’s racing debut at the Rally of Canberra in June 2007, driven by Neal Bates and 2006 Australian Rally Champion Simon Evans. Two more photos after the jump.
