Back in August AllSmallCars.com went out to Las Vegas for a day of fun with the all-new 2011 Scion tC and for those who missed the article, it is a pretty nice ride. Well, imagine that if more news coming off the Vegas strip has Scion and now the 2011 Scion xB. For those of you plugged in to this time of year in the automotive industry, you will know what comes next has to bee from the SEMA convention. No fooling anyone here, this year’s SEMA has a spectacular (or horrible) Squid Scion xB by The Salty Dogs.
Props go out to our partners over at MotorAuthority.com for catching pictures of this in person on the show floor earlier today. It really does show the incredible customization the Scion brand lends it to, though we do have to admit at SEMA you could see anything. However, despite the “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” look, the car is actually pretty cool. I would have to say it reminds me of Japanese Anime, but that aside, the attention to detail is impressive. You want to know the modification list? Check this out.

According to MotorAuthority.com, the list includes 19-inch TSW Caldwell Wheels, Tein coilover suspension, slotted rotors and hood retention rods to name a few under the skin of the vehicle. On the outside, there is the C&G Customs paint treatment, GT Series full body kit (modified for the 2011 model), carbon fiber spoiler and hood, gold painted grilles and, of course, submarine style portholes in the shaved rear windows. If you hop inside, the fun continues with black leather and suede on seat surfaces, suede headliner, custom console, LEDs and a “few thousand watts” of sound from the Acoustic Designs audio system. What system would be complete without television monitors, right? It has those too and a DVD player.
One thing is for sure, you couldn’t get out of a speeding ticket in a vehicle like this. Let us know what you think of this little red Squid by leaving us a comment below.
