Don’t judge a car by its cover

As SEMA rolls out multiple horrendous concepts in Las Vegas this week, Toyota decided to actually do something cool: build the ultimate sleeper from a four-door Camry.

On the outside, it looks like your typical midsize family sedan, albeit with some aftermarket wheels and a decently low stance. But, it’s all for show, or lack thereof.

Underneath is a full-tube chassis dragster, complete with 5.7-liter 3UR-FE V8 from the Toyota Tundra and up-tuned to 850 hp with a TRD blower and nitrous system.

“This is the most extreme build we’ve ever unveiled at SEMA,” said Toyota Engagement Marketing and Motorsports National Manager Steve Appelbaum. “The transformation from seemingly stock Camry to full-blown racecar just shocks the senses. Chuck Wade and the team at Motorsports Technical Center did a truly spectacular job executing the vision of this project.”

“This Camry is the ultimate sleeper — it definitely has the element of surprise on its side and more than enough muscle to drop the hammer on any unsuspecting car that pulls up,” said Wade, Motorsports Technical Center Director.
