OH. HELL. YES. TRD. LET'S GO PLACES......
best looking of three current bodies , once you get past the grill, it looks like the predator
The manufacturers create specific styling for these rollouts that goes somewhat beyond light and fascia decals to try to drum up some brand identity, none of which is carried over to any of the paint schemes that actually hit the track. That car right there, modified to suit a primary sponsor's colors, would really stand out.
Hopefully it will be as fast as it looks.
Would like to see it side by side with it's stock counterpart.
Here's the street version.
Street Camry has V8?
Yep, just like the street Fusion.
You can get a turbo Fusion, but no V-6 option. Fusions are four-banger only.
I thought I saw a Fusion with the V6 turbo.
I stand corrected, starting in 2017 you can get the 2.7L EcoBoost V-6.
sprinter v6 will be pleased.
Big Toyota fan(s).
It'll look good in VL.
More on the development of the Camry.
FWIW, these aren't "stock" cars.
Which street version of either manufacturer has a tube frame, one seat, 850hp, 4-speed manual, Saginaw box, Ford 9 posi rear end w/full floating axles, roll cage, radio delete, non-ABS, no air bags, cruise delete, no wipers, fake headlamps, side exhaust with rear decals, no rear window defrost delete, glovebox delete...
That CUP car looks pretty darn nice tho.
Yes, my post was for Taco Unto the world, a new Camry is born....
Did I just step into a time machine and step out into 1992?
No. Cup cars in 1992 had the exact same OEM content as they do today... zero. If you want to find modified production cars in a Cup race, you need to aim that time machine toward the mid-1960's. That is more than 50 years ago... and many are still complaining about it.
The new Camry looks great, but I swear I'll slit my wrists if TRD has snuck through aero properties that result in another year of Toyota domination on track.
Nah, I think its perfectly fine for Toyota to dominate for another year
I agree in part but at least the skins were more aligned up to the twisted sister era or the 90s (with a few prior exceptions like the Monte Carlo).
And that time frame also included an era of Nascar growth and expansion.
The cars today look as generic and bland as a group of 40 hijabs. Aside from an Array of colors they all look about the same.
Not a Nascar issue. Have you checked out a parking lot in the last decade? As technologies mature, the solutions converge. Always been that way.
Soulless decal festooned aero dependent slab sided uglyassed thangs!!!!
Common template sounds more like Nascar lingo to me.
We can't have cars running around 1/1000th out of tolerance as that would ruin the integrity of the series.
So I've got a question. Anyone notice the brake ducts? They are huge and recessed a ton. On the road car I get it, you're channeling air onto the front brakes/tires. But on the cup car they appear to be completely closed. I can't believe those huge scoops would be good for drag. On the ford and chevy, where the ducts would be isn't recessed hardly at all, although to be fair the SS and fusion road cars don't set them back as much as the road camry. You've gotta think that either a) TRD kept them because they think they can get some front downforce advantage out of it, or b) TRD got screwed by the designers of the road car. Pretty amazing the differences you can find in a bunch of generic stickers.
TRD works hand in hand with Calty Design in Newport Beach, CA. If it isn't good for the race car, it isn't on the production car and visa versa. Pretty awesome how Kevin Hunter and the Calty crew collaborate with TRD.
Perhaps the recessed area is better aerodynamically.
There'll be an opening for the brake cooling hoses on the racecars.
I wouldn't read too much into the car displayed in this thread. No doubt they'll get all of the stickers with simulated contour lines made by the time they hit Daytona. They are not going to allow these manufacturers to have any kind of drastic advantage over the others.
There are several interesting characteristics to this car. I don't know about Chevy and Ford, but I find it very interesting that the production designer and the race car designer are essentially one in the same for Toyota. Additionally, I found it interesting that the car at the Vegas test was in camouflage. I have never seen that in NASCAR. Obviously, they have a design concept they would like to keep quiet for awhile.
I also find it interesting that although I knew the new production Camry was to be unveiled in Detroit last Tuesday, I had heard absolutely nothing about the race version until the unveiling. Love the F1 level of secrecy.
Before the Gen-6 came out Chevy tested the SS like that:
And folks wonder why the ontrack product is lacking.
I don't think they would reveal it without it being homologated.
