Toyota brings CamRally and Crusher Corolla to join their ultimate sport machines at the 2013 SEMA Show.
Last week we shared with you Toyota trucks that were going to the 2013 SEMA Show as ultimate sport machines.
Two of those trucks are competing in the Toyota Dream Build Challenge where Team Toyota athletes and their big-name partners have been given seven weeks to create an ultimate vehicle of their choice.
The winner of the competition will be announced on Nov. 5 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
The trucks we chronicled last week were the 'Let's Go Moto Tundra' and the 'Ultimate Dream Ski 4Runner'.
The Camry, aptly named the CamRally, is a product of NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman and Kyle Busch Motorsports.
Using the vintage Toyota Racing colors of red, orange and yellow to boldly mark their machine, they charged into making this Camry an ultimate rally machine.
Partner Detroit Speed worked their magic with a number of modifications to make that happen.
The modifications include racing seats, turbos, racing windows, a roll cage, powerful brakes and heat protection to add functionality and safety to the car for rough terrain. Fog lights and an aerodynamic package enhance the ability of the car when it hits the road.
Rounding out the rally look is the special CamRally logo with Kligerman’s racing number 77.
“This Camry may look like a work of art, but we put some real muscle and functionality throughout the entire vehicle,” Kligerman said. “In rally racing, we’re not just protecting against a wall, but from trees too. Detroit Speed did an amazing job and after working with them I can see why they are the defending champs. With the help of their many partners, they were able to put all the bells and whistles on this car and they left just enough room in the trunk for us to bring the trophy from the Toyota Dream Build Challenge back to Kyle Busch Motorsports for the second straight year.”
The Crusher Corolla is the result of collaboration between BMX rider and Team Toyota athlete Drew Bezanson and Skullcandy to combine music and BMX to create the ultimate party ride for anyone.
Motorsports Technical Center incorporated BMX riding attributes into the 2014 Corolla’s design with custom grind rails added to the front and rear of the vehicle, rally wheels and a rack that mounts two bikes along the vehicle’s back window.
With the bikes removed and the trunk opened, there are nesting locations for bike tools, plus a pair of mountable speakers with light bars. Presto, any location can be lit up and sound-ready for a BMX show.
On the inside, custom iPad integration controls the interior features, including music out of upgraded speakers shaped in the Skullcandy logo. Both front seat headrests are 3:1 scale representations of Skullcandy’s newest Crusher headphones.
“When designing the Corolla for SEMA, we imagined a BMX rider could drive next to any drainage ditch and transform the space into a performance with bikes, lights and music,” Bezanson said.
