2011 NAIAS: Scion tC by Shawn Baker [Live Photos]
We are dealing with a heavily modified vehicle, which comes with tuning goodies for the powertrain, chassis, exterior, interior and ICE departments.
The vehicle’s engine was gifted with a custom turbo, exhaust, intercooler and a long list of other mods that are aimed at offering the person behind the wheel a feeling of invincibility.
The list of tech goodies goes on with 19-inch Rotiform three-piece forged RACE SJC rims, an AirLift electronic air ride suspension and beefy brakes.
Shawn Baker is a follower of the clean style look, so he choose this approach for the car’s exterior, also adding certain matte elements. The interior is a cocktail of leather, custom stitching, wood, that also uses a four-point roll cage and comes with 4G wireless Internet. As for the entertainment part, this is handled by an army of amplifiers, speakers and accessories.
Here’s how the carmaker describes the tuned creation: “The inspiration behind this tC is that form follows function. Shawn Baker believes that it’s not really about how much you add to a customized car, it’s about how well you execute the aspects that you choose to customize. Shawn is a huge fan of the clean look, so he wanted to emphasize the things that he enjoys most out of building a custom car: unique colors/finishes, raw performance, and of course a super aggressive stance.”
