Scion, Toyota's youth-oriented sub-brand, has made vehicle customization tantamount to the experience of purchasing and owning its vehicles. So at the world's largest aftermarket car parts show, SEMA, in hot Las Vegas, you can bet that Scion had a big presence with some truly unique vehicles.
MV Designs presented its Scion xBt. No, that's not a typo. The "t" stands for "truck," as the rear cargo area has been lopped in half creating a little truck bed. In Australia, they'd call this a 'ute. I think I'll call it an El xB-amino.
There isn't a part that the eye can see that hasn't been modified on this "Ruthless Cartel" Scion xB. The most obvious changes are the Orange Creamsicle paint job, the removal of the B-pillars and side window glass, and the big gaping hole where the ceiling used to be.
This xB modified by Raging Bull features a chopped top, a two-door conversion, and a custom air suspension that drops the body a full 2 inches for a long and low look. Individual throttle bodies are exposed through a slot in the hood.
This Slammer Scion xB also features a chopped top and two-door conversion. It's suspended by a TRD coilover kit and boosted by a TRD supercharger. Solid wheel covers and a stripped spartan interior make this xB look like it'd be more at home on the salt flats than the showroom. White matte-finished paint and custom airbrushed artwork complete the look.
