NEW YORK (March 31, 2010) – Scion today unveiled a Five Axis customized edition of the all-new 2011 Scion tC at the 2010 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). The special Five Axis Scion demonstrates one of the many ways in which the all-new tC can be customized with internal and aftermarket accessories.
The Five Axis tC carries a high–performance, racing theme with the installation of a four-inch wide-body conversion and a unique House of Color custom formulated exterior paint that is appropriately named, Bloodshot. Performance was enhanced with the installation of a Tein adjustable coil-over suspension, a TRD custom Big Brake kit, and 20-inch Yokahama Advan Sport tires mounted onto five AD R5:F wheels.
The interior complements the exterior performance and look with unique Five Axis trim and color appointments and material specifications by Zing Design. Comfort is provided with custom leather-trimmed seats with Ultrasuede® EcoDesign™ inserts. Additional interior enhancements include Chilewich floor mats, and upholstery by Little John’s Interior Concepts.
Founded in 1995 by Troy Sumitomo, Five Axis is most noted for their concept cars and high-end showcars often seen at major international auto shows and trade shows like SEMA. Their primary customers are auto manufacturers such as Toyota for whom Five Axis supports many of their internal R&D programs. Five Axis also has their own line of wheels and aftermarket products, which are designed and created using the same methods and technology to create their high-end concepts and show cars.
The Five Axis Scion tC show car will be on display throughout the 2010 NYIAS.
