Eight cars previewed ahead of their unveiling at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Scion is the latest manufacturer to reveal its customized cars destined for the SEMA show floor. The lineup comprises of eight concepts, based on the FR-S, tC and xB. Penned by DJ and producer Steve Aoki, the ‘x FR-S’ is one of four studies showcasing the diversity of the carmaker’s sports coupe featuring a fully operational mixing station, custom Pioneer sound system, deck lid-mounted LED display, fog machine and strobe lighting.
The remaining trio consists of the Bulletproof FR-S Concept One showcasing a widebody, carbon-fiber interior, track tuned suspension and 500-hp turbocharged engine; a GReddy Performance model that adds a turbocharged engine capable of 750 hp; and a FR-S “Style J” sporting a stylish body kit and custom interior. A trio of 2014 Scion tCs, designed and modified in 90 days with $15,000 as part of Scion’s Tuner Challenge, will also be on display. These represent tuner scenes in the East, Pacific Northwest and Southern California.
The tc WSD, finished in orange tri-coat paint, is the world’s first right-hand drive model with a 324-hp turbo; the white-colored L-DZ Concept is inspired by Japan’s VIP scene; and the Simpli-tC comes in teal with a widebody and turbocharged engine. Bringing up the rear is a business-oriented stretch limo xB conversion with onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple Mac mini, and hands-free mobile.
