One question... side mirrors on a drag car?
Talk about keeping a low profile. Toyota took the wraps, and the
body, off its ?sleeper? Camry drag car.
The silver, single-seat ?sedan? features a stock body wrapped around a
tube frame dragster chassis that?s been stuffed with the 5.7-liter V8,
transmission and live rear axle from a Tundra pickup.
A TRD supercharger, forged pistons and rods, nitrous oxide system and
Magnaflow exhaust pump the engine up to 850 hp that?s sent to the
asphalt through an IPT transmission and 335/30/18 Goodyear drag
radials that make it good for a 9.8-second quarter-mile time,
according to Toyota.
Amazingly, even though it has a funny car-style lift body, the doors
open conventionally to add to the ?sleeper? effect. As if the fact
that a Camry is pulling up next you at the strip isn?t enough to tip
you off that something might be up.
