SELLING AT NO RESERVE

When you want to draw strong connections between your NASCAR efforts and your street cars, there’s no better way to do it than to build a show stopping custom. Built as a collaboration between RK Motors and Toyota, the NASCAR Edition Camry is a take-no-prisoners custom that seamlessly blends NASCAR performance with street-friendly comfort.

Working with detailed technical specifications and a series of illustrations, this entire car was fabricated from scratch, and showcases the strong technical alliance between Toyota Racing Development (TRD) and RK Motors Design/Build.

Similarities to the full-race Camry you see racing on the big ovals every Sunday are not mere coincidence. The exterior shell of the vehicle is a custom 2010 Camry two-door coupe, fabricated entirely in steel by RK Motors’ expert metalsmiths. Using the body as a canvas, we installed several racecar features including a custom NASCAR-inspired body kit, Toyota grill (note that the holes are actually Toyota emblems), carbon fiber brake ducts with fog lights, and TRD emblems. The paint job is a show-quality two-tone that emphasizes the car’s muscular shape.

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. 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.

The engine is mated to a Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission with a Ram dual-disc street clutch. With a deep overdrive, the potent engine is capable of pushing the slippery shape of the street car deep into NASCAR territory. Racecar handling is achieved through modified MacPherson struts in the front and a Venza-modified multi-link independent rear suspension. 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 far more luxurious and comfortable than its NASCAR namesake, and includes such niceties as a full-sized rear seat. It also has been Modified with leather-covered door panels, a suede headliner with integrated rear tweeters, and leather-covered power seats with billet TRD logos. The car was also used by Toyota on the 2011 North American Auto Show Circuit.

It is incredibly rare for an automaker to participate in a project like this, and most custom projects like this are handled in-house. In the case of the NASCAR Camry, Toyota joined RK Motors to build something that is more than just a cool coupe. May not be emissions compliant in all 50 states.
