The Team Need for Speed AWD Scion tC

Posted on November 11, 2010

The first vehicle visitors see, as they enter the South Hall at the 2010 SEMA show is the new Team Need for Speed Scion tC Time Attack car of Chris Rado.

This is one of the more extreme cars at the show, but also one of the most purposeful, and for good reason. This beast races in the Unlimited Class in Time Attack events.

The first thing you notice, after the Team Need for Speed livery are the large front and rear wings for downforce. Under the full-width front wing is a large splitter. They may be extreme, but they are there for a good reason. With over 1100hp on tap, the all wheel drive Scion needs lots of downforce!

With an exterior body, loosely based on the previous ‘tC’ model, the reworked body is all in carbon fibre to keep the weight down and this is covered in the Team Need for Speed livery.

Under the hood, the engine installation is stunning with a tuned 2.4 Litre 4cyl engine, fed by a huge turbocharger. No wonder this Scion develops so much power.  I love the hood exit exhaust.

The latest issue of Modified Magazine, in North America, has this very Scion on the cover, complete with flames flashing about a foot out of hood via the unusual exhausts. No photoshop involved.

Great to see some great ideas to get to the extreme need for Speed.
