Who wants a Toyota Camry? I mean... for $159,900, it's a steal!

When you want to draw strong connections between your NASCAR efforts and your street cars (you know, the whole "win on Sunday, sell on Monday" thing), there's no better way to do it than to build a show stopping custom. And when you're a company like Toyota, the end result is a stunning Camry that packs NASCAR-levels of horsepower in a gorgeous 2-door coupe body. Built in cooperation with TRD, the experts here at RK Motors drew on some pretty impressive fabrication skills to create the Toyota Camry NASCAR Edition you see here.

...

Underneath the exterior shell sits a powerful TRD NASCAR V8 engine that displaces 358 cubic inches and delivers a cackling 680 horsepower at 8500 RPM. The beautifully finished engine features a custom air cleaner housing with dual conical air filters, with a paint scheme that matches the exterior of the car. NASCAR tricks abound, from the fuel pressure gauges mounted on the firewall, to the remote reservoirs for the brakes and clutch, to the massive billet aluminum strut tower brace that spans the front of the engine bay. And yes, before you ask, the engine is fuel injected, not carbureted, and uses distributorless ignition to light the fires. Making it street friendly meant adding A/C, power steering, and a reliable serpentine belt system, which makes this car as comfortable as a stock Camry in the day-to-day grind. Up front, a massive radiator with electric fans keep the potent engine cool, and you'll note that the engine has been set as far back as possible to improve weight distribution. Looking at the detailing throughout the underhood area, it's awfully hard to remember that this is a hand-built car, not something off a production line. Detailing is certainly impressive, but even more amazing is how OEM it all looks.








Lots of time and money went into this car, no doubt. What do you guys think?

Pretty solid sleeper if you swap out the wheels and just leave it white.

I'd rather it actually look like a stock car and I'd probably rather it was a Chevy. But then again, it is one helluva sleeper. Not sure about drivability though...that engine must be crazy loud and when raced, those engines are re-built after every race. What the long term viability of that engine if someone was to actually run it hard?

Look at the red stripe and black near the vent on the drivers side. Bad vinyl wrap on interior?
