TORRANCE, California — The Toyota Venza SportLux from Street Image is intended to showcase the performance potential of the Japanese automaker's new crossover vehicle. It's headed for the 2008 SEMA Show in Las Vegas next month.
The Venza SportLux was envisioned as a potential factory tuner model, with an aero body kit, interior modifications and additional performance hardware.
Exterior add-ons include a six-piece lip spoiler, a rear hatch spoiler, a custom grille and an integrated hood scoop. The SportLux rides on 24-inch Toyo Proxes 4 performance tires mounted on Chrome Cognac No. 20 wheels.
Chassis enhancements include TRD brakes with forged calipers as well as a height-adjustable coil-over tuned suspension. Street Image has fitted a TRD Supercharger, high-pressure radiator cap and oil filler cap, as well as a cold-air intake system, heavy-duty battery and dual center-exit stainless steel Exhaust system.
Seats are upholstered in black and burgundy leather, with black suede accents. The Eclipse in-vehicle entertainment system includes 1,000- and 1,500-watt amplifiers and an in-dash navigation unit.
2009 Toyota Venza V6
FOR MORE ABOUT THE VENZA:
As soon as you see the 2009 Toyota Venza V6, you know what it is. So how come there are all these questions about whether it's a crossover, a minivan in disguise, a tall wagon or a soft-riding SUV? Really, get over it. Toyota brought it to us, not aliens from another planet.
Mark Cooledge knows what it is. The 34-year-old insurance network manager from Texas is finding life a little tight in his Toyota Camry with his wife and two small children. He isn't convinced his family needs a minivan, but he wants more space, more practicality. And maybe the Venza is it.
Cooledge is just the buyer Toyota was counting on when it designed the 2009 Toyota Venza, so we let him take the wheel with us so we could get past the labels and figure out what it does best.
2008 SEMA: Hyundai Genesis Black Camo Coup
CHECK OUT MORE SEMA COVERAGE:
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California — The wraps have been taken off the latest customized 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, revealing a menacing black camouflage exterior, an APR rear wing and tinted taillights. The Genesis coupe was tuned by Street Concepts and will make its sizzling 2008 SEMA Show debut on November 4.
Hyundai confirmed in a statement that it will show off three modified Genesis Coupes at the upcoming SEMA show. This latest version underscores the Korean automaker's commitment to beefing up its performance-car credibility. In early September, Hyundai said HKS USA will create a Genesis Coupe 2.0t for SEMA.
Hyundai says the camo-swathed iteration of the Genesis Coupe was inspired by the stealth fighter jet. The package also features a custom grille design, Volk 19-inch racing wheels, performance tires, a modified suspension and Brembo brakes. The 3.8-liter V6 engine, with an estimated 306 horsepower, has been tweaked with a Magnaflow cat-back Exhaust and a cold air intake system.
Interior touches include carbon-fiber dashboard trim, a custom Infinity audio system, Cobra seats and black suede accents.
Earlier, the Hyundai Genesis Coupe was expected to be delivered to dealers in early February. But in Wednesday's press release about the Street Concepts Hyundai Genesis Coupe, the automaker said the "production model arrives in spring of 2009." The horsepower numbers on the Genesis Coupe also appear to have been readjusted. Hyundai previously said the V6 engine would deliver 310 horsepower and that the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine would deliver 223 hp. In its latest missive, it says the four-cylinder will deliver 210 hp.
2008 SEMA: Dodge Challenger Convertible
MORE SEMA INFO:
HIGH SPRINGS, Florida — Dodge has no plans to offer a Challenger convertible, which provides Coach Builders Ltd. an open shot at muscle car enthusiasts looking for an alternative to the popular Ford Mustang drop top. Now in final preparations for its official debut at the upcoming 2008 SEMA Show, the Coach Builders Dodge Challenger convertible will be shown alongside the company's Chrysler 300C and Cadillac CTS convertible conversions.
Coach Builders' Larry Moran told Inside Line that production of the Challenger convertible will begin on November 15, and that the company is "already taking deposits for getting a place in line." The Challenger convertible conversion is priced at $16,000, Moran said. A 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 currently costs $41,695 including shipping charges and gas-guzzler tax, so expect to pay nearly $58,000 for open-air Challenger motoring.
Moran also says that "custom interiors, performance options and wheels and tires" will be offered, but the details "are not firmed up yet." The car that will debut at SEMA was fortified with a Vortech Supercharger that bumps the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 to 560 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. It rides slightly lower on a KW coil-over suspension kit and 22-inch Foose Challenger wheels wrapped in Nitto tires.
The convertible conversion reinforces the Challenger with strut bars hidden inside the trunk instead of a visible roll bar, and the acrylic polyester cloth hydraulic top is padded between the structure and the exterior fabric for sound and temperature insulation. A heated glass rear window and matching fabric headliner are also included.
2008 SEMA Auto Show Highlights
FOR FULL SEMA COVERAGE:
Fuel mileage may have become the new horsepower lately, but don't expect to see evidence of the trend at the 2008 SEMA Show. Sure, there will be a few hucksters pitching their latest fuel vaporizers and magic tank magnets, but the other 99 percent of the show will be classic SEMA. That means hundreds of customized cars, blown crate motors and monster wheels that guarantee you'll never get 30 mpg. We'll be sorting through it all to bring you the noteworthy highlights starting November 4.
