And it's now up for sale for the bargain price of $35,000.
Most people know Rutledge Wood from the disastrous American version of Top Gear and his time with NASCAR, but unbeknownst to many, Wood is also a connoisseur of Japanese beaters. Back in 2015, we featured his custom-built 1983 Honda Civic wagon that was highly modified with a B18b engine out of an Acura Integra and a crazy "Tank Green" paint job. That car eventually sold for around the $10k mark, and now we have another one of his crazy JDM creations on the auction block: a 2018 Toyota Camry. This ain't no ordinary Camry though; this thing has been customized to the tune of over $100k, and the current bid stands at just over $37,000 if you want to get in on the action.
Wood's vision was turned into a reality by ZeroTo60 Designs and is like nothing we've ever seen done to a Camry. The Toyota Camry isn't the most popular platform to build on, and despite the fact that Toyota has offered a cool TRD version, the massive majority of Camry drivers are still on Facebook. Wood has an eye for unique builds, and this one comes out swinging with a "Blurple" paint finish and 3D-printed body panels. The design team came up with a 20-piece body kit for this car, and dropped it on a Megan Racing suspension kit and 20-inch rose golf Rotiform custom wheels wrapped in Continental Extreme Contact tires. Braking is taken care of by a Wilwood Dynalite system.
The interior is just as eclectic as the owner himself, and features a baseball glove leather interior, a custom carbon fiber steering wheel, custom floor mats with a cartoon caricature of Wood himself, and a banging Focal sound system. Based on the V6 XSE trim, this Camry features a 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque which it sends to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
While it won't win many street races, the new owner is sure to pull some questionable characters from the opposite sex in this thing, and with only 2,700 miles on the clock, it should last forever. With well over $100k spent on this thing, we would have much rather purchased a new GR Supra, but what's the point of living if you can't build a custom Burple Camry?
