Toyota Sienna Swagger Wagon

Toyota Sienna Swagger Wagon

I had to post this car on the site because it gave me a good laugh with the name “Swagger Wagon” based off the Toyota Sienna. The all new Sienna has been a huge success so far for Toyota, and this project is straight over the top. It has been stretched and modified by taking a family functional minivan and turning it into a limousine. Customizations include new 20-inch KMC chrome wheels, Brazilian hardwood floors, HP TouchSmart computer, Xbox, and an all new audio system. The sound comes from 10 JBL GTO 428 speakers, two JBL GTO 804 subwoofers, and four amplifiers with 1700 watts of power. This swagged out Toyota Sienna Swagger Wagon will also be seen at the upcoming auto shows in Los Angeles, Detroit, and Chicago.

Toyota FT-86 Concept Tokyo 2009

At the 41st Tokyo Motor Show, Subaru and Toyota have partnered together to release the Toyota FT-86 Concept. Both companies will produce their own versions of the car, but right now they are sticking with the Toyota name. It should launch at the end of 2011 and will be powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four cylinder engine. Sporting a rear wheel drive, the Toyota FT-86 Concept car shows performance numbers of 146 hp and 190 Nm of torque.

Delivering maximum driving performance will be a 6-speed manual transmission, and the affordable sports car will be priced around $20,000 USD.

Tommy Kaira Toyota Prius

Thursday, October 8th, 2009:

tommy-kaira-toyota-prius

Japanese car tuning specialists Tommy Kaira have created a modified version of the third-generation Toyota Prius, which is one of the top selling hybrids. All of the customizations are cosmetic because the tuning company didn’t want to hinder fuel economy, since that is the reason people buy the Prius in the first place. The front end received a completely redesigned look with the addition of a front lip spoiler and air intake vents. Lowering the ride height of the Toyota Prius is an aftermarket suspension kit to add to the new sporty look. It also received new larger wheels and tires because the wheels on most hybrid models are pathetic.

The all new Toyota Prius will be launching in 2010 and the Japanese automakers designed several car tuning kits exclusively from Modellista.

Wald International from Japan has released a styling kit for the latest generation Toyota Land Cruiser. They called this styling kit The Black Bison because the offroader received a massive and aggressive look with huge 24 or 26″ rims and a couple elements that extend the car’s long body kit even more. The stylish kit consists of a re-designed front bumper, new side skirts that connect the front side with the rear side of the car, a rear apron with integrated diffuser and a small roof wing to add a stylish touch to the car. The Land Cruiser’s huge alloy wheels were wrapped in big chunky tires and it seems that Wald International was one of the few tuning companies that tried to develop a kit for this huge Land Cruiser.

ride-cars-ford-mustang-based-on-toyota-mr2-1

We’ve seen a lot of crazy car tuning styles in our time, but the newest project made by Ride Cars in the United Kingdom is one of the most extreme modifications. The car’s styling was inspired by Eleanor, a Shelby GT500 from the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds” but the strange part comes right now: the car is not a modified Mustang, it’s based on a Toyota MR2. The guys from Ride Cars made an impressive carbon fiber bodykit that consists of a new front and rear body section, new side skirts, door sills and skins, new lights and hinges and an awesome set of rear window louvers. They can also offer a wide range of options like a new set of wheels and tires, new suspension, brakes and an improved exhaust system.

Banzai Toyota Aygo

Thursday, December 18th, 2008:

We usually review cars modified by well known car tuners, but Banzai is a Japanese magazine, not a tuning company. In March they received an Aygo from Toyota GB and they tried to modify this car a lot to offer it as a prize which was won by someone from Glasgow. The Banzai Toyota Aygo has a small 1.0L engine which received a lot of modifications. The guys from Banzai installed a supercharger that takes the power up to 138 HP and they also reduced the car’s weight considerably. Now this tiny car has incredible handling and could accelerate like a rocket from 0 to 100 km/h. The car also received a body kit made by Toyota Motorsport which has a lovely black and red combination. Banzai likes to focus their project on used cars, but the occasional factory model will suffice occasionally.

NCE Toyota Prius Convertible

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008:

The company that made this hybrid Toyota Prius convertible is called Newport Convertible Engineering [NCE]. Hybrid cars aren’t very well designed, and the guys from NCE thought they could improve this car a lot by making it convertible and adding some cool elements. Even though a lot of people don’t think this car looks too great it’s surely an improvement from the stock car and it looks really well for a hybrid car. You could buy used hybrid cars and try to make them convertible like this one. The car’s tail lights were modified and the interior is fully covered with white. Hybrid cars will be really popular in the future and if you buy a Toyota Prius you could go wild and modify it as you wish. I’ve heard a lot of bad comments about this car but I’m pretty sure it’s a lot better than its stock version.
