We’d never thought that day would come, but the latest generation Toyota Camry actually looks good, especially compared to its competent and popular, but pretty ho-hum when it came to design, predecessors.
Eager to show that it can still build exciting and evocative vehicles, Toyota went back to the drawing board for the new Camry and delivered a sedan that looks far more imposing than ever before. In fact, it almost looks so aggressive that you could be forgiven for thinking it’s a high-performance Lexus.
As nice as the new Camry looks, though, Japanese tuner Artisan Spirits thinks it can make it even more head turning. And it has done just that with an eye-catching series of modifications.
The JDM tune
Artisan has developed a custom front splitter, side skirts, and rear diffuser for the new Camry, which give it a more aggressive stance. Making it stand out even further is a small spoiler on the trunk, a carbon fiber spoiler on the roof, and a set of OZ Racing wheels. The car pictured even has quad tailpipes positioned just like the Lexus IS F – and, come to think of it, the Ferrari California.
The tuner sells all of its components for the new Camry separately, but if customers want the whole package, parts can be bundled and purchased together. Buying them all is probably the way to go, as just fitting only one of these parts may look a little strange.
There are many Japanese tuning companies out there that takes things a little too far when it comes to styling modifications. However, impossibly low ground clearance notwithstanding, we think Artisan’s take on the Camry actually works.
