We know, it kind of sounds like the Camry Hybrid 50th Anniversary Edition is Toyota's way of celebrating 50 years of selling hybrids, a mark it's still a few decades or so away from achieving. Rather, according to the press release after the jump, this special edition Camry is meant to celebrate the 50 years that Toyota's been doing business in the United States. We think a Tundra 50th Anniversary Edition would be more appropriate considering that's one vehicle Toyota makes exclusively for the North American market, but whatev.

The Camry Hybrid 50th Anniversary Edition gets a bleached white Blizzard Pearl paint job, unique 16-inch wheels finished in graphite, and that one thing that any special edition model would be naked without: "50th Anniversary Edition" badges! A power moonroof and heated power side mirrors are also standard equipment. Inside the Hybrid Camry is decked out with a voice-actived nav unit, heated front seats and bisque-colored leather trim. Special trinkets include a brushed stainless steel dash applique, illuminated front door sills and carpeted floor mats, all bedecked with the "50th Anniversary Edition" logo.

Toyota will be producing only 3,000 of these celebratory cars, which will carry a base MSRP of $31,680. That's a fair sized chunk of change more than a standard Camry Hybrid that starts at $26,200, but hey, you gotta pay the man if you want to party with Toyota.
