Toyota SEMA Cars Include Tundra for Baja and Wacky DUB Edition Yaris
30 Octobre 2014 - Autoblog
Toyota has released the first images of its brigade of concepts for the 2014 SEMA Show, introducing a trio of TRD-fettled off-roaders, a pair of DUB-inspired models, a race-ready pickup and a Sienna minivan with 48 inches worth of subwoofers.
Four of the vehicles being shown by Toyota will take part in the grueling Baja 1000 off-road race. The star of that effort will be a race-prepared Tundra, which will actually be competing from November 12 to 16 in the 47th running of the desert race. It'll be supported by a trio of vehicles, which mimics Toyota's TRD Pro Series production vehicles, with the 4Runner, Tacoma and Tundra all acting as support vehicles.
Each of these vehicles has been fabricated by the off-road specialists at N-Fab and comes loaded down with communications and guidance equipment, additional lights and off-road body modifications.
For softer trails, Toyota will introduce modified examples of its refreshed Sienna minivan and Yaris subcompact. Styled by DUB, the Yaris' headlines include 20-inch Dropstars wheels on a custom, lowered suspension. A big-brake kit from TRD complete with StopTech rotors rounds out the chassis changes. Aesthetic tweaks include Sparco racing seats, carbon-fiber interior bits matte white pearl paint and a custom widebody kit.
A similar treatment has been applied to the Sienna, which is home to an eye-catching quartet of 22-inch wheels. Like the Yaris, the minivan benefits from a lowered ride height and larger brakes. The seats feature custom black-and-white leather upholstery, four subwoofers, eight speakers and two amps, all from DUB. The exterior has a widebody kit, Galaxy Grey paint and tinted windows.
Finally, audiophiles will flock to the West Coast Customs-built Sienna:Remix and its 48 inches of subwoofers and 156 inches of speakers. Oh, and those are just on the outside of the van. Power is fed to this wild system by five high-powered amps while a DJ can spin in the plug-and-play booth. Two 40-inch monitors provide some visual panache, spicing up the mostly production Sienna exterior. A set of Giovanna mesh wheels are the most notable exterior change.
