Martin Truex, Jr., joined with Motorsports Technical Center to build a road-going version of his Number 78 Camry Cup Car. For the exterior, the team tried six different shades of black before they were satisfied. All bits of chrome trim were treated with cobalt Cerakote, and all surfaces receive a matte clear coat.
The wheels were forged by American Racing as replicas of the wheels on Truex, Jr.'s racecar, although these are 20 inches across and clad in Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric high-performance street tires. The front splitter and rear lip spoiler were created to give the car functional downforce when driven on the highway—or racetrack.
The interior features an extension of the all-black theme, with black leather, black stitching and MTJ logos embroidered on the headrests.
