According to the number plate (not attached to the dash, but held in the seller's hand?) this is number 89 of 110 of the Sportivo examples. Each started life in Japan as basic Corollas but were factory pimped by an Australian Toyota division -- and yes, you can only get them in gold paint.
Under the hood is a turbocharged version of the 2ZZ-GE 1.8 liter 4-banger that is good for 189 horsepower. You'd think they could squeeze out more power with the forced induction, because the US spec Matrix XRS made 180 horsepower and Lotus version put out 190 horsepower -- both non turbo.
