Do you like car races? Well Toyota is creating a NASCAR version of the best-selling car in America. That’s right, a Toyota race car version of the Toyota Camry is being made to compete at professional racing events. So our team at Toyota of North Charlotte thought it’d be a cool idea to talk about the new 2018 Toyota Camry NASCAR version and what jaw-dropping Toyota models we have on our lot right now.
The Toyota Camry race car version
Toyota was recently announced as the Official Vehicle of the Kentucky Derby. This is very much in character for Toyota as their brand moves further towards creating vehicles that are more attractive to our Charlotte area consumers, being sportier and more stylish. This also is great for Toyota because their largest manufacturing plant in the world is in Kentucky! This relatively close plant and employs around 8,000 people.
But Toyota isn’t just doing this because they can, they plan to race at diffrent professional NASCAR events. The race car version of the 2018 Toyota Camry will make it’s debut will be at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. This will be the first time a car makes its debut on the race track before it’s production model is release. The NASCAR version on the Camry was designed so that it resembled the “street version” as closely as possible. Due to all the rules and regulations that are required of NASCAR racing vehicles, the two could not be completely identical, but Toyota says that they’re happy with the final product of the race car and its similarities.
The Toyota Camry has been the number one selling car in America for the past 15 years. This will be the first year that new vehicle development and production technology will be fully used in making this vehicle. Toyota is always looking for ways to improve their product and stay on top.
