Toyota Goes Extreme with 2016 SEMA Projects

Toyota has a wide and varied lineup of modified vehicles at the 2016 SEMA Show.

This year, the Japanese automaker has an unprecedented suite of 30 vehicles on display in Las Vegas, designed to either honor the past, explore the present or reveal the extreme. The company also has a special display honoring the Corolla’s 50 years. Of course, the annual SEMA Show is all about heavily modified cars and Toyota has no shortage of those, including a Land Speed Cruiser that can hit 220 mph and a track-prepped Toyota Prius aimed to pull 0.99 g on the skidpad.

Joining those two vehicles is an Xtreme Corolla built by Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs. Transforming the popular sedan to a one-of-a-kind creation, Lookofsky and his team converted it to a two-door sports coupe with an interior retrofitted with a one-of-a-kind floating center console and an extensive JBL audio system.

Along with the two-door Corolla creation is the Sienna Extreme minivan, created by Real Time Automotive’s hot rod builder, Rick Leos. Along with a custom widebody, the Sienna packs plenty of carbon-fiber goodies, TRD brakes, performance wheels and tires, a splitter, rear diffuser, spoiler and dual exhaust. Inside there’s plenty of luxury accessories, including a top-of-the-line entertainment home theater system, reclining seats with custom upholstery, a refrigerator, Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth speaker. The entire vehicle is also controlled by an iPad, including its air ride system.

2016 SEMA Show Coverage

Also present at the Toyota booth is the Toyota Motorsport GmbH GT86 CS-Cup that has been imported to the U.S. for SEMA. Designed for a one-make series overseas, the GT86 race car features a livery that pays homage to Toyota’s racing heritage with a cool red and white retro design.

Lastly, there’s the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro Race Truck, built by Camburg Racing’s Jason Campbell. Modifications to the pickup include FOX 2.5-inch coilovers with remote DSC adjuster along with front and rear FOX 3.0-inch Bypass Shocks with rear piggyback reservoirs. It will also be competing in the Mint 400, the largest and most prestigious off-road race in America that will be held in March 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
