Slowing things down a little today coverage wise for another SEMA Showstopper.
Erik actually spotted this car on opening day (while I was off getting married) and suggested that I take a peak inside the car once I was done looking under the hood.
When I did finally track this Benz down I took his advice and was treated to one of the most thorough ’cross-breed’ cars I have seen in awhile.
The initial eye catcher to this car is the JDM 2JZ swap
A few people have said they would have liked the engine bay to be a bit more dressed up but considering the build as a whole it is not really necessary
Like the engine bay the interior is host to borrowed Lexus/Toyota components
An IS250 is the car that lost guts for this interior to live
It was great to see this car on a Nitto tire set-up that could use all that new power and the VIP modular were quite fitting
The kicker was this model who actually knew what she was standing in front of and could talk about it intelligently
Check back tomorrow for some Classic American muscle from the 2012 SEMA show.
