Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition

The SEMA Show will open its doors in Las Vegas tomorrow, and one of the many customized vehicles especially prepared for this event is the Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition revealed by the Japanese company over the weekend.

The Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition which was developed by RK Collection (RKC) has undergone serious modifications, so the car, which is now a two-door instead of a four-door, comes with a custom body kit, carbon fiber brake ducts with fog lights, TSW Jarama wheels, wrapped in Michelin Pilot tires ( 245/35/20 front - 285/20/30 rear) and a massive V8 under its bonnet.

The goal was to create a high-performance street legal vehicle, and moving on to the interior, the Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition includes features like leather-covered panels, power leather seats, SPEK gauges by Proparts, an upgraded sound system and a 4-point roll cage.

The V8 plant powering the Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition measures 358 cubic inches and produces 680 HP @ 8,500 rpm which get sent to the wheels via a Tremic T-56 Magnum 6-speed manual transmission with a Ram dual-disc street clutch.

Toyota press release :

2010 SEMA Show - RK Collection Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition 001
The RK Collection Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition makes its public debut at the 2010 SEMA Show.  The special two-door Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition was developed by RK Collection (RKC) to assist Toyota Racing Development (TRD) in visualizing the virtues of a standard Camry and morphing them into a powerful NASCAR counterpart.
 
The project was the visionary inspiration of Rob

Kauffman, founder of RKC and co-owner of the NASCAR team Michael Waltrip Racing.  The project was developed with the dual purpose of building and running a high-performance street legal Toyota Camry with a NASCAR engine.  In partnership with TRD, RKC brought the concept to life with illustrations and a technical specs outline, rebuilding this one-of-a-kind high performance street machine.  The vehicle was designed to showcase the technical alliance between TRD and RKC and demonstrate the connection between Toyota’s production vehicles and its strong NASCAR program.
 
The exterior shell of the vehicle is a RKC custom made 2010 Camry two-door body sheet metal.  RKC used the body as a canvas and installed several race car features including a custom body kit, Toyota grill, carbon fiber brake ducts with fog lights and TRD emblems.  The car sits on TSW Jarama wheels that measure 20 x 8.5 inches in the front and 20 x 10 in the rear and fitted with 245/35/20 Michelin Pilot tires in the front and 285/20/30 in the rear.
 
Underneath the exterior shell sits a powerful TRD NASCAR V8 engine that measures 358 cubic inches and delivers a blistering 680 horsepower at 8500 RPM.  The engine is mated to a Tremic T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission with a Ram dual-disc street clutch.
 
Race car handling is achieved through Camry modified Macpherson struts in the front and a Venza modified multi-link independent suspension in the rear.  Shocks are coil over, single adjustable.
 
The high performance of the NASCAR Camry can be heard through a custom three-inch exhaust with X-pipe, Thrush mufflers, Quicktime performance cut out, custom side exhaust tips and high temperature turbo Black coating by H.M. Elliot Inc.
 
Inside, The NASCAR Camry is modified with custom leather-covered panels, a suede headliner with integrated rear tweeters, leather-covered power seats with custom TRD billet logos, a billet shifter and a dashboard with SPEK gauges by Proparts.  Comfort is enhanced with air conditioning provided by Vintage Air.  For added safety a four-point roll cage was installed.
 
A powerful audio system was required to help offset the throaty performance under the hood.  This was accomplished with a Pioneer AVIC-2110BT DVD/NAV receiver.  Boston Acoustics contributed to the high-performance sound with two GT-275 75w amps, four GT-475 75w amps, two pair of SR-60 two-way 6.5 component speakers and a G212-44 12-inch subwoofer.
 
After its debut at the 2010 SEMA Show the RK Collection Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition can be seen during the NASCAR race weekend beginning November 12 at the Phoenix International Raceway.
