Toyota Unveils The Camatte57s Concept
To Be Shown At The 2013 Toyko Toy Show
Toyota has revealed a very unique concept this week called the Camatte57s that will be shown at the 2013 Toyko Toy Show this weekend. You might be thinking that's an odd place to show a concept car, but we think you'll understand why after this explanation.
Toyota says the aim of the Camatte57s is to bring "...parents and children closer together as they work in collaboration on building their ideal car. The vehicle aims to convey the joy and dreams of motor vehicles to current and future drivers, by providing an opportunity for parents and children to together experience the fun of driving, car customization and car enthusiasm."
How much customization are we talking about? Well, the Camatte57s has 57 lightweight body panels that are detachable and enable easy color and design customization. One day you might decide to go with a rainbow themed roadster; the next, sports roadster.
The Camatte57s measures 9.84 feet, is powered by an electric motor, comes with seating for three, and can be driven by a child. Yes, you read that correctly: a child can drive it. The Camatte57s features adjustments for the pedals and seat to pull this off.
If you're wondering about the name, Toyota says Camatte57s "...reflects the idea that people should feel more in touch with each other and with vehicles."
