The all new 2012 Toyota Camry was shown in the flesh today, but it was also announced that it will strut its stuff around the track as the 2012 Daytona 500 official pace car.
During the Camry’s unveiling today, Denny Hamlin, driver of the Number 11 Fed-Ex Camry for the Joe Gibbs Racing Team, rolled up in the new pace car, but more can be seen when NASCAR kicks-off on February 26, 2012.
Toyota felt it was only appropriate to feature the Camry as the best-selling car in the U.S at “The Great American Race,” but not before being heavily advertised during the all-American Super Bowl championship game.
Bob Carter, Group vice president and general manager of Toyota, boasted the seventh generation sedan’s all new sheetmetal, roomier and quieter cabin, and increased fuel efficiency during today’s reveal. The new models will arrive on lots in October, as they make their way from Toyota’s Georgetown, Kentucky assembly plant.
