Among the countless car tuners, one name stands out for its ability to tweak a vehicle to perfection: SR Auto Group. The firm has worked on the likes of the Ferrari 458, the BMW Z4 and the Audi S4. Noted for its wild yet superb designs, SR Auto recently completed work on a Scion iQ that just spells aggressive.
While not as gorgeous as the other tuned goods under its belt, there’s something to be said about SR Auto’s guts in giving the cute city car a makeover that turns it into a devilish looking four-wheeler. Certainly not suited to all tastes, the tuned iQ is an intriguing piece of work that’s completely turned the little hatchback around.
Called Project Pryzm in view of the iQ’s sharp and boxy interior, SR Auto has drastically modified the front with massive air dams made to look like a snarling mouth. The aerodynamic package turned the tame city car into a little beast that’s perfectly complemented by 17-inch black Sparco wheels. After a little height modification, the iQ was fitted with a body kit sourced from Premier 4509. The kit comprises new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, a roof spoiler and a new hood.
The exterior isn’t the only portion that was tweaked. Getting behind the wheel will feel like you’ve entered the cabin of a supercar what with all the black leather and beige headliner. The inside has been adorned with sporty yet aggressive seats with an elevated side bolster. The outer part of the seats has been encased in black leather while the center black suede portions sport red diamond-stitched patterns and a bit of red stitch on the seams. The door panels haven’t been left forgotten either, featuring black suede inserts with the same red stitching as on the seats.
