Default 240hp/185kw s/charged 3L V6 Camry (model:TS-01) for Oz

http://goauto.carsales.com.au/mellor...256FB8007B7839




Seems to be in response to the 'niche' market for hi-po cars these days eg
Ford and GM's circa 6 litre GT Falcon and Monaro respectively are a few kw
under 300 (400hp) currently (where does it end?). The s/c Camry will sit in
the 'medium' size performers bracket, which presently is occupied by mostly
exotics.

I dont think the relatively small market here would satisfy Toyota's R&D
costs in the short run,..and OZ is a good proving ground before the US. The
blower is US sourced amongst other things,..........always prefered
s/charging to spool-up delay of turbos and their matenance.
