In the automotive lexicon, the term sleeper refers to a standard looking vehicle that hides its true nature. Case is point is this 2015 Camry that Toyota brought the 2014 SEMA show. On the outside, it looks like your standard Camry. But there a big secret underneath the hood, or should we say the whole car. Underneath the body is a NHRA certified tube frame chassis housing a supercharged 5.7L V8 from the Tundra that makes 850 horsepower. This Camry can do 9.80 second run on the quarter mile. But what makes this car truly impressive is that it only took Toyota's Motorsports Technical Center team eleven weeks to build this.
Autobytel's T.J. Keon speaks with Chuck Wade, Toyota Motorsports Technical Center Director about this very special sleeper.
