NEW YORK (March 31, 2010) – As part of the North American debut of the all-new 2011 Scion iQ premium micro-subcompact car, Five Axis has created a special iQ show car for display at the 2010 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). Five Axis’ iQ show car demonstrates the personal customization synonymous with all Scions.
Elegance and sophistication were the primary influences for the iQ show car. This is evident with its unique exterior color called Titanium, consisting of pearl bismuth silver that is accented with black chrome.
Inside, the special iQ show car is appointed with custom leather-trimmed seats and door inserts and an Ultrasuede® EcoDesign™ headliner. Unique upholstery is provided by Little John’s Interior Concepts and custom floor mats were provided by Chilewich.
Performance was enhanced with the installation of a TRD Custom Big Brake Kit and a Tein suspension. The iQ show car rides on 18-inch Yokohama S.drive tires mounted onto five AD S6:F wheels.
Founded in 1995 by Troy Sumitomo, Five Axis is most noted for their concept cars and high-end showcars often seen at major international auto shows and trade shows like SEMA. Their primary customers are auto manufacturers such as Toyota for whom Five Axis supports many of their internal R&D programs. Five Axis also has their own line of wheels and aftermarket products, which are designed and created using the same methods and technology to create their high-end concepts and show cars.
The Five Axis Scion iQ show car will be on display throughout the 2010 NYIAS.
