Another year at SEMA means that its time once again for Toyota to trot out its DUB Edition Camrys, Avalons and Corollas...yawn.
Wait, what's this?! A Toyota Murai FCV with gullwing doors?!
The Murai custom is inspired by the "Back to the Future" DeLorean time machine from the sci-fi classic. Its mirror-finish wheels give it the illusion of floating.
A Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor sits atop the rear deck.
The body has been coated in metallic silver paint that mimics the raw stainless-steel finish of the DeLorean.
The Murai's roof has been cut and its doors modified to mimic the time machine's gullwing doors.
An OUTATIME vanity plate finishes rounds out a list of details that includes an iPad-powered dashboard control panel and a sliding rear deck.
The Toyota Tacoma that made an appearance in the film is also displayed at the show.
Lord Vader, your swagger wagon is ready. Toyota also brought out this insanely modified Sienna minivan.
The Sienna has been overhauled and is now ready to tackle sand dunes, boulders or whatever else you can throw at it.
The suspension has been lifted and is now outfitted with baja-ready off-road dampers with external reservoirs.
This is SEMA, so no concept is complete without a massive screen or two.
A matte-finished Toyota Tacoma outfitted with TRD equipment sat neglected near the front of Toyota's booth.
Instead, all of the cameras were pointed at the stretch 1794 Edition Tundra parked nearby.
Dubbed the "Tundrasine," this pickup has been stretched to a 26-foot overall length.
With eight doors, there's plenty of space for up to 16 cowboys partying hard during a weekend in Vegas.
Inspired by Tonka toy trucks, this Toyota 4Runner is pretty much overprepared for any off-road adventure.
The chassis has been significantly lifted, now riding high atop massive knobby wheels and tires. A rooftop tent transforms the 4Runner into a mobile basecamp.
Toyota and DG Spec present the R-Tune Sienna, a track-prepped take on the minivan. Don't laugh; they're being serious. (Well, about as serious as a race-van can.)
Powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and six-speed manual transmission, Toyota claims the race-ready minivan beats a stock Camaro V8 around the Streets of Willow racetrack by a full second.
The interior has been totally stripped to reduce weight, and a rollbar has been welded in place.
I know a few enthusiasts who would be very envious of the Sienna's Enkei RPF1 wheel and Nitto NTO1 track slick tire combo.
Toyota's Scion brand lacked a booth of its own this year. Rather its vehicles were scattered among the enthusiasts' rides outside of the show floor.
The Scion FR-S RS 2.0 is the second Release Series special edition of this chassis. The model features unique wheels, paint and brown leather trim. Only 1,000 example will be made.
Scion's new iA gets the low-rider treatment thanks to Scion lifestyle partner Eddie Huang.
The iA features a panda graphic scheme and gorgeous, gaudy low-rider paint.
A two-stage air suspension can be individually articulated granting the little sedan classic hydraulic movements. Hit that three-wheel motion!
Airbrushing, a chain-link steering wheel, swivel front seats and a shiney low-rider club logo displayed in the rear skylight add finishing touches.
Nearby is a Scion iA inspired by the Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman's latest comic Outcast.
The car has a theme of "demonic possession" with movement, light and sound features that make the little sedan appear possesed.
Fans of classic Toyota sports cars will no doubt recognize the legendary Toyota Supra.
This example, hidden behind the automaker's booth with a few other classic sports cars, has been mildly modified.
This Toyota Crown is both unassuming and totally rad.
Something about the contrast of the upright, rectangular lines with the race-inspired Enkei wheels, Yokohama tires and Brembo brakes just does it for me.
Check out this trio of classic Toyota awesomeness. From right to left there's a Toyota AE86 Trueno Sprinter, a Toyota Supra and a Corolla 1600 wagon.
Again, the combination of classic, upright lines with race-ready gear just grabs my attention.
The Trueno AE86 has a cult following among Japanese sports car and drifting enthusiasts and served as the inspiration for the modern Scion FR-S.
Inside, Toyota also had a Scalextric race track with an amazing level of detail.
Showgoers could pit scale models of Toyotas trucks and cars against each other around the winding road.
Look closely and you'll find a Scalextric version of the hero Supra from the first Fast and Furious film.
I live my life a quarter-mile at a time, but at 1:32 scale. That's about 41.25 feet... at a time.
