The 2024 Toyota Camry Looks Wild As A NASCAR Racer

Motorsport / Comments

That Prius-inspired front end looks highly aerodynamic.

Following the reveal of the 2025 Toyota Camry production car, Toyota has just revealed the XSE Race Car for the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series Season. The XSE replaces the Camry TRD Next Gen, which arrived in 2021 and racked up 18 victories and 25 poles in the past two seasons.

Toyota Racing Development worked closely with Calty Design to ensure that the NASCAR Camry looked as close as possible to the refreshed model that was revealed in Los Angeles. The styling includes a distinctive hammerhead look on the front facia with an upper grille that blends into updated slim and wide headlights, similar to the latest Toyota Prius. The lower grille gets new C-shaped corner vents, the hood has new character lines, and there are new hood duct exits. At the back, thinner taillights give the Camry a more sculpted look.

"The 2024 Camry XSE race car will properly highlight Toyota's attention to detail as has been showcased in the new street version Toyota Camry. We are excited to bring this car to the race track and continue to achieve success with it for years to come," said Paul Doleshal, group manager of motorsports, TMNA (Toyota Motor North America). "The amount of work put into this car's production cannot be overstated, and we thank everyone at TRD and Calty Design for their efforts in creating a premier vehicle for our team partners to compete for wins and championships."

Toyota didn't specify any details regarding the engine, but the Next Gen cars all use a 358 cubic inch (5.86-liter) V8 mated to a five-speed sequential manual transmission. This engine produces 670 horsepower without the restrictor plate.

"The foundation of Toyota's presence in NASCAR is our commitment to continuous improvement on and off the race track. Our Camry XSE race car reinforces that mantra and accurately reflects the key design attributes of the all-new production Toyota Camry," said David Wilson, president of TRD. "As we prepare for the 2024 season, we look forward to working closely with our race team partners to optimize the performance of the newly-designed Camry race car so we can continue our legacy of leading laps, winning races and competing for championships with the Camry nameplate."

The Camry XSE joins the GR Supra in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) and the Tundra TRD Pro in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series. Eight Toyota Camrys will compete on track every weekend, starting with the Clash at the Coliseum exhibition race in Los Angeles in February.
