Toyota has six vehicles that it's bringing to the Specialty 2013-sema-lets-go-moto-tundra-000-1.jpg
Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show next week, all of which were developed by and for people who live active lifstyles. Four of them are the result of the Toyota Dream Build Challenge, which tasked a team of athletes and vehicle customization shops to build Toyota sedans, pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles in seven weeks that would enhance performance in their respective sports.

We'll lead off with the CamRally Camry, developed by NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman, Kyle Busch Motorsports and Mooresville, NC shop Detroit Speed, Inc. for the Dream Build Challenge, because it appeals to us gearheads (sure, call us one-sided). It was totally transformed into a rally vehicle, and it has to be the most badass Camry we can remember seeing. The sedan is always a bit flaccid-looking in stock form, but the CamRally's wide body and other exterior upgrades and the turbocharger make us forget about that, as do its stripped, painted interior and Sparco race seat.

We're not going to judge a vehicle based on its name, because the 'Let's Go Moto' Tundra, a creation spurred by Joe Gibbs Racing Motocross (JGRMX) teammates Josh Grant and Justin Brayton for the Dream Build Challenge, is a great addition to any dirt biker's arsenal - and we could see ourselves towing a track car behind it with a set of tools, tires and other equipment stored in the bed. JGRMX's shop and N-Fab handled the build.

The other two Dream Build Challenge vehicles are the Oakley Ultimate Dream Ski 4Runner, created by freestyle skier Simon Dumont and Herbst Smith Fabrication, and the Crusher Corolla, developed by pro BMX rider Drew Bezanson, Skull Candy and Motorsports Technical Center.

Head here to vote for your favorite Dream Build Challenge vehicle. Voting is open until November 4. The next morning, Top Gear USA host Rutledge Wood will announce the winner at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, at 10:00 AM local time. Check out the press releases below for more details on each of Toyota's SEMA 2013 vehicles, where you'll also find a video highlighting the Dream Build Challenge vehicles.
