At the SEMA Show Toyota will introduce four iQ-based custom models under the brand Scion. The vehicles were modified by tuners Cartel, Chang, Jon Sibal and Tatsu.


The more extreme among the custom iQs is the Pit Boss Cartel iQ, a radical chop-top designed to serve as a racing pits support vehicle.

Cartel has removed the roof, reduced the size of the doors and fitted tough metal interior panels and carbon fibre seats and trims. This iQ can be controlled by iPad and serves as a mobile WiFi hotspot and power charging station.

Created for the show’s Tuner Challenge, the other three iQ special versions were tuned by Michael Chang, Jon Sibal and Tatsu.

Chang has produced the iQ-RS Evasive, characterized by a full motorsport treatment: key elements include a carbon fibre body kit, Air Runner suspension, Sparco race seats and Advan Racing wheels.

Sibal’s iQ RX has a full body kit courtesy of Veilside, finished in a subtle matte metallic grey and bronze pearl paint finish. The engine has extra punch thanks to a Nitrous Express injection kit, and the wheels are 18-inch three-piece forged HRE rims. Air Runner suspension sits the car close to the ground.

Tatsu’s iQ-MR takes an even more radical approach, moving the engine – rebuilt by Mavrik Motorsports – amid-ships to drive the rear wheels. The bodywork has been customised with new panels from Speciality Cars and 16-inch Sakura wheels from Axis are fitted.

SEMA also marks the public debut of the first race car to be developed from the new, third generation Yaris. The Yaris B-Spec Club Racer will be competing in SCCA championship racing in the USA next year, driven by American BMX star Jamie Bestwick.
