Toyota Tundra Limo, Camaro-Fighting Sienna Hit SEMA

The Toyota “Tundrasine” concept is a 27-foot limousine that started life as a Tundra pickup and was revealed this week at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas. If that’s not enough, Toyota had more wacky creations on hand including a Sienna R-Tuned concept, which the automaker claims is faster than a Chevrolet Camaro SS around a track.

The Tundrasine stretch limo is based on the already large and luxurious Tundra 1794 Edition CrewMax truck that rides on a 235.9-inch (599.2 cm) wheelbase, which is 90.2 inches (229.1 cm) more than stock. The height and width are the same, but the truck gains four more doors and much more room. Curb weight rings in at 7,978 pounds (3,619 kg), which is 2,288 pounds (1,038 kg) more for the 5.7-liter V-8 to haul around compared to the stock truck.

Toyota Sienna R-Tuned Concept

Toyota tries to add more swag to its “Swagger Wagon” by making it a track toy capable of beating a stock Camaro SS around the Streets of Willow Springs racetrack. It did so by teaming up with DG-Spec and installing upgraded brakes, tires, suspension, and a limited-slip differential. Toyota claims the 266-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 is completely stock, as is the six-speed auto.

That said, Toyota says the Sienna R-Tuned concept lapped the track in 1 minute and 27 seconds, which was a full second quicker than the 426-hp Camaro SS. If the soccer team wants a ride, then most will be out of luck. Extensive cage work and braces means this minivan only has seats for two.
