only for the folks down under:



basically a Camry badged as an Avalon down under with a supercharged V6 !!!!

Autoblog states:

The replacement, which gets a new name, will be built using the same mechanicals as this Camry TS01 concept car produced for the Melbourne Motor Show last March. In addition to the blown motor the car will also wear a more sport-tuned suspension and larger brakes. Despite this major effort to improve upon the Avalon’s dowdy image in Australia, Toyota execs know full well that the sedan will not seriously threaten the Falcon and Commodore, both of which are available with big V8s, also come in wagon variants and compete exclusively against each other in the popular V8 Supercar Series.

yah, too bad we can't get a boosted one from the factory. Could you imagine what a sleeper that would be in the states?

That's awesome! I was hoping it was going to be a 2az-fe, rather than the 6 banger... That would mean the trd supercharger for the states was done.
