Toyota Motor Sales and Toyota Racing Development introduced the new 2015 Toyota Camry race car that will compete in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series beginning next season.
With the announcement of the 2015 Camry race car, Toyota becomes the first manufacturer in the series to update the NASCAR ‘Gen-6’ model, which was initially introduced in 2012 for competition beginning during the 2013 season. In addition, a redesigned Camry will also be used in next year’s NASCAR Xfinity Series, currently the Nationwide Series.
The 2015 Camry race car marks the culmination of a redesign to provide the vehicle with a more unique identity — and a look similar to the 2015 production Camry that was introduced earlier this year. TRD worked together with Calty Design, part of Toyota’s global network design team, to update the on-track Camry and incorporate design elements from the new 2015 production Camry into the race car.
“We’re thrilled to finally be able to show off our new 2015 Camry race car” said Ed Laukes, TMS vice president of marketing, performance and guest experience. “We anticipate that fans will appreciate the development behind this bold Camry design – both on the race track and the showroom floor.”
The boldest change to the new 2015 NSCS Camry is the aggressive front end and grill area, which looks exactly like its production counterpart. In addition, the new Camry boasts an all new, sleek hood and nose, along with a new tail of the car. A distinct change in the quarter windows also adds to the sleeker look.
The new 2015 Toyota Camry will make its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut at Daytona International Speedway during February’s ‘Speedweeks.’
