Ultimate Sleeper: 850-HP Dragster Dressed as Toyota Camry

One-off

This will blow your mind.

If you’ve been waiting to see something outrageous at this year’s SEMA show, then the wait is over. Toyota has arrived in Las Vegas with something completely OTT. It’s a Toyota Camry housing a purpose-built Funny Car-style dragster powered by a Tundra-sourced 5.7-liter supercharged V8 equipped with a wet nitrous system that sends 850 hp to the rear wheels. The aptly-named “Sleeper Camry” also borrows the pickup’s transmission and rear axle, and features a tubular chassis as well as production alloys wrapped in drag racing rubber.

Apart from the lowered stance and beefy tires, with its flipper body closed there is nothing to suggest the custom Camry will run a 9.8-second quarter mile. All four doors work, although only the driver has a chance of getting in. The interior has been completely stripped out, and comes packing a Fast Ed’s racing seat, Autometer digital dash, and Impact Racing four-point harness. After its stint at SEMA this week, Toyota will parade the spectacular Sleeper Camry at NHRA drag races across the US.
