Toyota Billabong Ultimate Venza, the Mean Presence at SEMA

Japanese manufacturer Toyota is determined to make a lasting impression at this year's SEMA show. After earlier today we presented you the Tundra hot rod and the Prius Aerius/Aemulus, the carmaker now introduces us to the Billabong Ultimate Venza, "the perfect active sports vehicle".

Even if that last statement is a matter of perception, this Venza version is quite a sight for sour eyes. Built together with the aforementioned Billabong and Street Image, the Venza packs an aggressive custom body kit, fender flares and Enkei wheels with Nitto tires.

On the interior, the car is customized with wet suit materials upholstery and artistic color collage headliner. The later depicts Billabong athletes in action.

Infotainment wise, the Venza features a multi-media DVD head unit, iPod interface, head rest-mounted LCD monitors, 18 speakers, 2,200 watts of power and Verizon Wireless access point router.

All the alterations have been made in light of the Venza being used to support athletes in future competitions. The wireless connection will allow for surf or snow reports to be received by those using the car.

"The Toyota/Billabong Ultimate Venza Concept will be the official Billabong Team vehicle for use by surf, snow, skate and wake athletes. It will also be used in the Billabong Adventure Division to tow personal watercraft during wave excursions and will be the official Billabong tow vehicle for their wake team. The one-of-a-kind Venza will also be displayed at Billabong surf contests and camps from coast to coast," Toyota says in a release.
