NASCAR Sprint Cup Toyota Camry's use a Toyota designed 358ci OHV V8 engine. The design uses some features of other V8's in the series, most notably the high cam position in the block is similar to the Dodge V8, while the front mounted distributor and oil pump location mimics the Ford V8, while cylinder head and bore spacing resemble the Chevy V8. This engine is used only for NASCAR and not based on any Toyota production engine.
