Team 18 #20 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 2023 Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 Hino Team Samurai Retro Livery, Scott Pye

At the 2023 Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500, Scott Pye and Team 18 campaigned a retro Hino livery, which paid tribute to the sponsor’s sportscar past.

The all-red livery, complete with retro Hino logo, number and gold wheels, looked incredible on the Chevrolet Camaro.

Hino has made its name in trucks and buses, and has been supplying the Australian market for almost 60 years. However, the marque also has a background in motorsport, notably in the Dakar Rally.

The Pye livery was a throwback to Hino’s Team Samurai prototype, which was set to enter in the 1967 Japanese Grand Prix and Le Mans.

A race version of the 1300cc Hino Contessas finished first and second on debut in 1966 at Riverside Raceway in California. American automotive designer Peter Brock created the ‘Team Samurai’ prototype, which was later deemed unable to race.

Over 50 years later, the striking red of the Team Samurai car was reborn on Pye’s Supercar and will now become an incredible collectors model too.
