Sporting a look similar to the production 2015 Camry, the new race car is a collaboration between TRD and Calty Design, party of Toyota’s global network design team. The biggest noticeable change is the more aggressive front end and grille, which looks identical its production counterpart. The new Camry also has a new, sleek hood and nose, along with a new tail of the car.

“We’re thrilled to finally be able to show off our new 2015 Camry race car — becoming the first manufacturer to update the ‘Gen-6’ model that was introduced before the start of the 2013 season,” 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.
