“Has Toyota finally done it? A GR Camry?!” Sorry to burst your bubble, it’s not what it looks like. Yes, the Camry pictured above sports the Gazoo Racing badge, but no, it’s not exactly new. Those are just GR parts on the same current-gen model available in other markets.
Disappointing? Not really. It still looks pretty damn good. The front bumper has been given additional black accents for a more macho look. The rear bumper boasts additional aero bits along with a new trunk spoiler, and a new side skirt and 19-inch wheels complete the set.
Unfortunately, this body kit isn’t compatible with local Camry units. These GR parts are built for the higher WS variant available in Japan that has no equivalent in our market.
That said, there’s a different package that might become compatible with PH-spec Camry units in the future: Modellista’s new kits. We say might because this is available for the facelifted model, and we don’t know yet whether or not Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) will be bringing it in.
Anyway, back to the body kits. There are two available: ‘Bright Elegance Style’ and ‘Smart Shine Style.’ The former gives the Camry a bulkier look with a new front spoiler and side and rear skirts. The latter, meanwhile, gives the sedan a classier stance with new garnishes for the grille, the doors, and the rear, plus a trunk spoiler to boot. Additional options for both packages include 17-inch and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Frankly, it’ll be hard picking just one kit from all the choices we ran through here. But if you really had to choose, which of these would you want to get?
