Scion bringing nautical themed xB to SEMA Show

With the automaker's support of the aftermarket and a veritable army of customizers putting their individual spins on their xBs, tCs, and xDs, the Scion booth is always home to crazy customs and tricked-out tuners.

If this xB isn't playing "I'm on a Boat" on continuous loop at the SEMA Show, I'll be very disappointed.

Whether you're a fan of its vehicles or not (and we're pretty split here at Car Tech), Scion's booth at the SEMA Show is always a treat. With the automaker's support of the aftermarket and a veritable army of customizers putting their individual spins on their xBs, tCs, and xDs, the Scion booth is always home to crazy customs and tricked-out tuners. Scion sent us a preview of this year's show cars, which includes a nautical themed xB dubbed The Squid and an All Stretched Out xB that's been extended by 48 inches into a VIP-style limousine.

On the performance side of things, Scion is also featuring a selection of tCs. GReddy's example of the coupe uses a prototype turbocharger kit to boost engine output to 340 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. A trip of Tuner Challenge tCs range from James Lin's over-the-top aerodynamic add-ons to Shawn Baker's smokey, understated model. Event the little xD gets a piece of the action, being transformed into the rally-inspired Tarmac xD by 0-60 Magazine.

There are plenty more Scions in our slideshow and more still will be strutting their stuff at the 2010 SEMA Show, so stay tuned to our continuing coverage.
