This Is What the World’s Come to: A Slayer-Modified—Yes, the Metal Band—Scion tC for SEMA

Oct 31 2014 4:52pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Metal icons Slayer are all about fast, loud, and violent. The gothic-macabre Slayer Scion tC that Toyota will bring to SEMA this year embodies at least two of those qualities, with a skull-festooned aesthetic and an interior crammed full of with audio gear. The black and red coupe has custom airbrushed skulls on either side and the Slayer eagle logo on the hood. Billet sword blade wheels with menacing spike center caps and ominous red lighting accents dial up the demonic a ...

Scion’s annual Tuner Challenge, in which three tuners are given a Scion, $15,000, and 90 days to customize the car for the SEMA show, has become something we look forward to every year. For 2014, Scion has changed things up: instead of handing the cars over to tuners, the automaker issued its challenge to three media outlets: Super Street, Speedhunters, and the GT Channel. Just days before the cars (which are int ...

Viva La Targa! Scion Chops Part of the Roof Off the FR-S Sports Car for SEMA

Oct 31 2014 3:47pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

For years, rumors have swirled about Scion building a convertible version of the FR-S. Alas, well into the FR-S’ life cycle, such a thing has never appeared, at least not in production form. There was a concept, the FT-86 Open, which Scion parent company Toyota showed last year at the Geneva auto show. And along comes this: a lovely targa-roofed FR-S show car. Making its debut at the 2014 SEMA show, the “FR-S T1″ was created by Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs and wears “Azzuro California Bl ...

First Drive: 2015 Dodge Charger

Oct 31 2014 12:27pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

SUMMIT POINT, Virginia – The perp’s in a red R/T with Michigan plates. He’s cracking the ton through here, hitting 104, 105, 106 miles an hour and climbing. Nice try pal, but you ain’t running from the long arm of the law. The 370-hp V8 growl issuing from the back of the Charger Pursuit rises in volume as it hunts the miscreant deep into the braking zone and tilts over through the hairpin, taking a set. Don’t worry, ma’am, closed course, sl ...

But when Audi AG took over Ducati in April 2012, the Mercedes-AMG deal was obviously severed. It was only a matter of time before the German Mercedes-AMG partnered with another motorcycle manufacturer, and rumors began last year about a possible partnership with the Varese-based MV Agusta. These rumors were confirmed Friday wh ...
