The appeal starts with the CamRally’s vintage Toyota racing colors of red, orange and yellow painted on a widened body.

But peel back the skin and you’ll find plenty of performance upgrades to back up the looks. While Toyota doesn’t say how much horsepower it makes, the CamRally’s V6 is turbocharged, and we assume the car’s brake upgrade is indicative of the engine’s increased output. The stripped interior only contains what’s needed for rally racing, including bucket seats, a motorsport steering wheel covered in Alcantara, a carbon-fiber dashboard and a roll cage.
