Collecting Cars is offering a Toyota GR Yaris hot hatch that belonged to Christian von Koenigsegg.

The 2021 model was first registered in Sweden in December 2020 and has two previous owners, one of which was the Koenigsegg founder.

The car is powered by a turbocharged 1.6l three-cylinder engine, generating 261bhp delivered to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. With just 6,667 miles on the clock, the Yaris had its first service this month, with Toyota carrying out an oil and filter change.

This example was ordered with Toyota’s Circuit Pack which includes front and rear Torsen limited-slip differentials, uprated ‘GR Circuit’ suspension and red brake callipers.

Painted in metallic Precious Black, the car sits on 18-inch forged alloys wheels while the interior features black leather and Alcantara-trimmed sports seats with contrasting red stitching.

Bidding for the Toyota GR Yaris currently stands at €35,250 Euros (approximately $37,200 USD) with two days remaining.

Elsewhere in automotive, Polestar 5 will have 884bhp electric powertrain.
