Jade Motorsports '06 Scion xA

Jade Motorsports researched the Scion youth segment to get a feel for what hot, 'up and coming' trends excited these distinctive enthusiasts. 'Time Attack' racing, 'Tuner' cars, 'Drifting,' 'HIN' show cars, along with our personal Jade cars were popular with many in the Scion scene. Our direction was then to combine those elements and create something 'over-the-top.' The challenges we faced on this project were massive but the end result is an xA that's built for the show circuit, tuned for the streets, and possessing the fit and finish that rivals a factory Scion vehicle. "Proud parents" is the only way we would describe our feelings for this car and we thank Scion for this awesome opportunity to showcase our talents.
