One of the many Scion tC coupes to be making an appearance at the 2010 SEMA show is one tuned by James Lin. It seems this tuner took out a book on what tuners could do to a car and then proceeded to do anything and everything imaginable, leaving us with this highly modified and super rad ride.

Starting with the exterior of the vehicle, the tuner added a carbon fiber hood and trunk, custom door handles, and a carbon fiber rear wing. More carbon fiber came in thr shape of an AIT racing carbon fiber front and rear bumper splitter. Splitter rods and front bumper carbon fiber canards by APR were also thrown in for good measure. Then Lin went ahead and shaved off the windshield wipers and door handles because, well, he could. The interior saw a new Sparco Steering Wheel, a Fast R Shift Knob, and the lovely sounds coming out of the new Sony 7-inch Double XNV-770BT audio system.

Under the hood of the Scion there is a new turbo charger, a front mount intercooler, custom chrome manifold and down pipe, carbon fiber dampers, and a DC Sport Air Filter. No specific numbers were given as to the performance of this bad boy, so we’re hoping more specs will be reviewed when the car rolls onto the show floor.

Tell me about it. I’m pissed that you guys get the MazdaSpeed3 for $23K, and we’re ered with $29,360 for the same car

The Scion brand was meant to attract young buyers, but with products like this it’ll be
hard to attract anyone in that demographic.

This update looks awkward, boring and not well thought out.

GTR is heavier than the 3 because of the electronic Transmission and AWD Drive train, also it has lesser HP than the 3 unit because of the Enhancements of the ZR1 and GT2 well lets not include the Ferrari of course.
