We often picture midsize sedans as wafty cruisers driven by executives...or their drivers. But there are those who want to add a little more spice in their cars, regardless of what they are, big sedans included.
So for the executive who wants to look (or feel) more like Batman, check out this Toyota Camry by TOM'S. Dubbed the C35, the plush sedan has been transformed from a mellow land barge into a sinister sports sedan. It's for the chief who wants to take on corners, and likely doesn't mind a slightly firmer ride.
It's fast too as the C35 Camry packs a 3.5-liter V6 that doles out 301 PS and 362 Nm of torque. That engine is then paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Essentially, it's the stock six-cylinder powertrain option offered in North America and Australia. While untouched by TOM'S, performance figures are respectable, allowing this (nearly) five-meter long sedan can sprint to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds.
TOM'S also stiffened the suspension of the C35 Camry, as well as lowering its ride height. It also gets a wider contact patch care of a larger wheel and tire combination with its 19-inch TOM'S TH01 alloys that are eight inches wide. So not only can this souped-up Camry go fast in a straight line, it looks like it can take on some twisties too.
Speaking of looks, the TOM'S Camry gets a more aggressive front and rear bumper courtesy of the sporty (Japanese-spec) WS variant. It then gains a front splitter, a slim pair of side skirts, and side fins for the rear bumper, making it look even lower. The TOM'S Camry also has larger quad exhaust pipes as well. The black finish on the car adds to the aggressive effect, although it is possible that other colors can be optioned for it.
To make the car feel more responsive, it can also have what TOM'S calls their Linear Throttle System. This system allows the driver to adjust throttle sensitivity to make it feel more (or less) aggressive. Other TOM'S goodies? There's a carbon fiber pack for the steering wheel, TOM'S courtesy lights, and special floormats.
