Toyota TRD-Sport Trailer Overlanding Rig
Toyota has been known for its off-roading roots as well as rugged reliability, and their new TRD-Sport Trailer is definitely no slouch. This ‘basecamp’ vehicle lets overlanding explorers quickly set up camp and then continue on their remote adventure just about anywhere in the world. The inspiration for this occurred when Bob Kupina, Senior Program Manager, Toyota Motor North America Research and Development, saw a trailer made from a Toyota Tacoma at the Overland Expo WEST in Flagstaff, Arizona.

MANHART Supra GR 550 Toyota
The MANHART Supra GR 550 combines aesthetics with power in a golden package. This vehicle has received MANHART’s MHtronik Powerbox, a remapped ECU, an upgraded turbo, Wagner Tuning-supplied radiator, MANHART charge pipes, and an ARMAspeed carbon intake, to boost power output to 542 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. In other words, the power has been increased by 207 hp and 199 lb-ft of torque, compared to a factory-spec Euro Toyota GR Supra.

At first glance, this may appear to be a Mad Max prop vehicle, but upon closer inspection, you’ll realize it’s a heavily modified XV10 (1991-1996) Toyota Camry. Rather than repaint the body of his vehicle, owner Austin Lee Ingram from Georgetown, Indiana, went for a rusted look, literally. Since the body probably isn’t fit for a standard body kit, license plates were used as fender flares, and to be honest, works out quite well.

Toyota JAXA Moon Rover NASA
NASA’s Artemis mission will send humans back to the moon by 2024 and the crew won’t be staying in a base or inflatable tent, but rather a pressurized RV rover. The space agency recently joined Toyota and Japan’s Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) to design a six-wheeled, self-driving rover capable of accommodating two astronauts for up to 14 days. They’ll be able to live and work inside while traveling across lunar surface.
