Widebody DUB Edition Toyota Yaris to Bow at SEMA Show
Somewhat amazingly, Toyota almost always seems to have a Yaris at the SEMA Show, and this year is no different (I even have a couple of Yaris t-shirts from their booth). Toyota has turned to DUB magazine to trick out the refreshed 2015 Yaris. And in true DUB fashion, they've gone all out— whether you like the look or not.
Most obviously, the car rides on enormous (for a Yaris) 20" Dropstars wheels and massive 245/30/20 Nitto Invo tires. No ordinary Yaris could possibly accommodate such rolling stock, so the liftback has been given the widebody treatment. The car wears a custom matte pearl white and gloss black paintjob, which I dig; I'm a sucker for both matte and pearl white, by the way. Also of note, I love the center-exit exhaust. This is something I'd love for my Yaris.
There's no real specs on the suspension other than the press release says "custom." The car does have StopTech brake calipers and a TRD big brake kit, however.
Inside the Yaris are a pair of Sparco racing seats, carbon fiber accents, a black ultra-suede headliner, red accents, and a custom pearl white rollbar. And no DUB-Edition vehicle would be complete without a killer sound system. This Toyota has three amps, two 10" subwoofers, new speakers, an iPad, and custom fiberglass and leather enclosures.
I know this is over the top. However, you must remember that this is a DUB-created SEMA vehicle, so anything else would be unexpected. I'll try to snap some photos of this baby ballermobile at the show next week. Stay tuned.
