Toyota Racing Dream Build Prius - It Was All a Dream?

What do you get when you ask a NASCAR driver to build a tuner car? You’re looking at it. This Prius, the vision of Michael Waltrip Racing driver Clint Bowyer, competed in the Toyota Racing Dream Build. We were taken aback by the Prius’ look. Its vanilla white hood and grille contrasts the rest of the car and makes it look like Clint’s 18-wheeler backed into the Prius and no one cared to fix it properly.

The Prius got a 17-inch custom touch screen with built-in Windows 7 computer, two ASUS 12-inch tablets, and a side-view camera system that replaces the factory mirrors. A staggering 45 feet of fiber optic lighting and a thumping 16-speaker JBL audio system with two amplifiers and six crossovers brighten the mood inside the Toyota. As a racer, Bowyer wanted the Prius to have some attitude, so a set of Megan Racing springs and shocks bring the hi-tech hybrid down “lower than a Sprint Cup car,” according to Bowyer, while it rolls on a set of custom EVOD wheels. The Toyota Racing Dream Build raised money for charity and won a fan an all-expenses paid trip, but let’s hope they don’t let Bowyer build another car.
