2013 Tokyo Toy Show: Toyota Camatte57s Concept is really crazy

Article by Christian A., on June 12, 2013

This is the Camatte57s, a concept designed by Toyota that will make its debut at this week’s 2013 Tokyo Toy Show. Developed as an open-top family-focused concept car, the new Toyota Camatte57s is inspired by the fun generations of mums, dads and kids that love to do things together and it is built on the original Camatte Concept that was shown last year.

The new concept has a greater range of customization opportunities as its body is made up of 57 small, lightweight, detachable panels that can be finished in a wide choice of different colors and designs. Moreover, the Camatte57s features pedals and seats that can be adjusted so that even children can drive the vehicle.

What is more interesting is that the position of the right-hand rear seat will let adults help with steering and braking, so the youngsters can make an early start on developing their driving skills but only in safe places.

According to Toyota, the Camatte57s Concept is powered by an electric motor but no details about the output or the maximum range were released. The car measures 3,000mm long by 1,440mm wide and 1,000mm high, and seats three. [source: Toyota]
