When you see a car that’s hugging the ground, rolls on aggressive-offset wheels with meaty tires poking beyond the fenderwells with millimeters of upward suspension travel remaining you have got to take notice. This Toyota bB (Scion xB to our Western brothers) has got exactly that.

And when you’re done admiring it’s shiny blue paint, you scratch your head and wonder, because there’s definitely more going on that some people just may not comprehend. The creative hood design reveals the car’s powerplant, which is something that you won’t really see from any car that came out of the Toyota stable…

A Honda K20 engine. What!? That’s some serious conversion right there.

And then you realize that the roof has been chopped, and the interior is fitted with a full roll cage. Why would someone do such a thing to a Toyota bB / Scion xB? Well, let me answer that with a question – “why not?”
