Toyo Uses Continental-based Tetsu GTR To Show Off Tires At SEMA

Written by tonks on October 8, 2008

Toyo has recruited dozens of tuners to produce six SEMA worthy models that will be able to show off their range of track ready tires. Among the line-up is the Bentley Continental-based Tetsu GTR – which is not particularly impressive to us (style-wise) though it can push out 800 horsepower. However, the other models are more appreciated and more to what we look for in SEMA.

Bulletproof Automotive is introducing a Nissan GT-R that is owned by a customer and is decked out with limited edition BBS LM-DBK-P wheels that are surrounded by Toyo’s 20” Proxes R888 tires. It has also been equipped with an Endless monoblock six-piston front and rear brakes, an Amuse Super Tough Titanium exhaust, and carbon fiber aerodynamics.

Vivid Racing and other firms are showing off the Mitsubishi Evolution X to the show. However, Vivid will stand out more with their Porsche GT3 RS paint job, 18×10” AME Tracer 02 wheels and 650 horsepower.

One of the cars that we are most looking forward to seeing is the sixth car – which at this time has no name. We do know that it will be accompanied by a 2009 Toyota Tunder CrewMax SR5 that is built by Two Brothers Custom Trucks and Choppin’ Block Custom Fab’s 1931 Studebaker Model 54. Both models ride on a custom air suspension Centerline Smoothie wheels.
