LAS VEGAS — Toyota is aiming a fusillade of customized Scions at this week's 2011 SEMA Show, including at least four different interpretations of the iQ minicar.
The race-inspired Scion iQ Pit Boss by Cartel features AccuAir suspension, Wilwood Dynapro six-piston brake calipers and Lorenzo WL028 wheels with Toyo Proxes 4 tires (215/35R18 front, 265/30R19 rear). The blue-and-black body lost its roof while adding a rollcage and rear tire rack. An Alpine audio system, full iPad integration and mobile WiFi capability are part of the package.
The Scion iQ-RS by Michael Chang boasts a clean and relatively simple design, with a Wraptivo matte-white exterior wrap, red powder-coated Advan Racing RT wheels and Evasive Motorsports black carbon-fiber aero add-ons, including fender flares, rear wing and vented hood. An Air Runner suspension, Toyo R888 racing tires, Wilwood brakes and Sparco seats, pedals and steering wheel are also fitted.
The Scion iQ RX by Jon Sibal is finished in a subtle matte metallic gray by MVDesignz, with matte black trim, HRE black-painted alloy wheels and red Stoptech brake calipers. Nitrous Express provided additional muscle under the hood, while an Air Runner suspension, Toyo Proxes 4 tires and Veilside aero body bits add to the car's presence.
The Scion iQ-MR by Tatsu sports a massive roof-mounted intake, plus custom bodywork and rollcage by Specialty Cars, as well as Sparco seats and steering, Axis Sakura wheels, Falken RT615 tires and a full engine rebuild by Mavrik Motorsports.
The Scion Gruppe S tC by Dynamic gets a white paint scheme with loads of sponsor decals, offset by black carbon-fiber hood, deck-lid, front splitter, roof and rear wing. Hankook performance tires are mounted on gold-painted WEDS SA55 multi-spoke wheels. The racecar adds a KW coilover suspension, TRD big brakes, Recaro sport seats and Sparco race harnesses. For more oomph, Dynamic has bolted on a GReddy turbo kit and intercooler.
The tri-tone Scion Numeric xB by 686, created in partnership with Scion Racing and Spin Imaging, is aimed at snowboarders and skateboarders, and is one strange-looking animal. Among the not-your-usual features: Waterproof/breathable 686 fabric wrap, YKK exterior zipper pockets, New Balance wet race tires, Freewaters heated floor mats and a Skullcandy sound system.
