The SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show kicks off tomorrow in Las Vegas, and Scion has unveiled its lineup for the show. Six builders put their own interpretations into the Scion tC, FR-S and xB with custom upgrades, individual style and creativity.
We’re most excited about seeing the Scion FR-S T1, built by Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs. The two-tone combination features a black targa top and a custom Azzuro California Blue paint job, over a muscular all-metal wide body and integrated rear spoiler. The vehicle has been lowered and sits on custom 19-inch forged wheels.
Other vehicle highlights include:
- High-mounted custom center exhaust
- GReddy street turbo kit
- KW coil-over suspension
- Wilwood Big Brake Kit with custom nickel-plated finish
- OEM Audio+ System 400 complemented by a Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX head unit
No word yet on what kind of numbers the FR-S T1 is putting down with that turbo, but we’ve long complained that the FR-S/BRZ needed some boost, so we’re glad to see that this car has some go along with it’s show. As for the targa top, while some purists will complain about compromising the structural integrity of the chassis, Toyota did it with the Supra back in the day, so why not?
As for those wheels and rear louvres, no bueno. 🙁
In addition, three Scion media partners went head-to-head customizing the Scion FR-S as part of the 10th annual Scion Tuner Challenge, and these three cars made their debut last night during the Scion Tuner Challenge preview night. You can see photos of all three project cars here.
