2015 Toyota Camry NASCAR Revealed

Let's go circle racing

Toyota Racing Development (TRD) has updated its Camry race car with a more modern look that now matches up with the 2015 Toyota Camry production model. Like the road-going version, the 2015 Toyota Camry NASCAR racer is sleeker and more stylish from every angle.

Toyota brought out the "Gen-6" Camry race car back in 2012, ahead of competition in the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) season. Toyota is the first manufacturer to redesign its “Gen-6” race car since then, leading the charge in a joint effort between manufacturers and NASCAR to better incorporate styling from the road cars into the race cars.

TRD partnered up with Toyota's Calty Design to update the 2015 Toyota Camry with the production model’s wider, more aggressive front end and grille; wrap-around taillights; and a more cohesive quarter window. The overall design helps the race car better resemble the production 2015 Toyota Camry, showing audiences a clearer and more present connection between Toyota’s racing and mass production efforts. Toyota replaced all of the production Camry’s sheet metal with new from the last model to the current 2015 car, with the roof as the only carry-over body piece, so it is fitting that the NASCAR version makes similar strides with this updated design.

"We anticipate that fans will appreciate the development behind this bold Camry design, both on the race track and the showroom floor," said Toyota vice president of marketing and performance Ed Laukes, in a statement.

The 2015 Toyota Camry NSCS race car will make its debut at Daytona International Speedway at Speedweeks in February, before joining the NASCAR Xfinity series next season. The street car, meanwhile, is on sale now from $23,795.
