The iconic Toyota bB (or its twin brother the Scion xB) has always had a following amongst the tuner crowd. Based on the Toyota Echo/Yaris/Vios platform, this car probably has the most appeal and charisma compared to its cousins, despite its boxy looks.
With a properly kitted-out bB or xB, you could easily roll into a parking lot filled with modified Silvias, Skylines, Evos, or Imprezas, and get the same level of respect, than if you came in with a similarly kitted-out version of any if its more rounded cousins. There’s just a certain attitude about the bB/xB that makes it stand proud.
The Toyota bB you see right here is a perfect example. Tricked-out by Euro Garage Motors, it has been given a complete makeover and now features a stanced and VIP’d look, making it stand out, or sit – given the 2.75″ drop, like a boss (check out the camber!).
Black paint while sitting on Work Euroline Wheels is a traditional VIP recipe, but the guys at Euro Garage spiced this bB up by covering it with satin black vinyl wrap with custom decals, and added various exterior upgrades, making it look hotter than ever before. Additional flavor is provided by a custom audio system consisting of a Pioneer head unit, Crescendo and Ground Zero speakers, and Alipine amplifiers.
But the secret sauce is what you’ll find under the hood. Because this car has been turbocharged. Let me say that again, this car has been TURBOCHARGED! Yes, that’s right, the 1.5L 1NZ-FE engine has been given a doze of adrenalin care of a T25 Garrett Turbocharger, a custom exhaust, APEXi air filter, HKS Blow-Off Valve, and a G-Reddy E Manage Ultimate system. So when a ricer boy in a doped out Civic tries to cut you off thinking you’ll never catch him, you’re confident to know it won’t be easy for him to outrun you.
