This thing from Toyota is a Camry in name and appearance only, otherwise you can just call it a crazy dragster.

Officially called the Ultimate Sleeper, Toyota brought this V8 equipped, rear-wheel drive car to SEMA to showcase its can-do attitude when it comes to motorsports. Under that Camry shell is a 5.7-liter V8 engine that makes 850 hp, enabling the car to blast through the quarter mile in 9.8 seconds.

Equally impressive is the build time, as Toyota says this car when from concept to reality in just 11 weeks. Check out the full video below.
