Scion + Alpine = Hot Cars

11/05/2009 at 11:20am

Scion + Alpine = Hot Cars
Last week, Scion invited us to a preview for their SEMA cars at their art gallery in Culver City, CA. With DJ Virman from Far East Movement spinning the tunes from Scion’s custom DJ xB, Kogi BBQ serving fusion street tacos from the Alpine-equipped “Azul“ truck, and great Scion demo cars – what more could you want? How about a custom xD and tC!

The xD Kogi Mobile Kitchen, made by our friend Mike Vu and his MV Designz team, is a partnership between Scion, Kogi BBQ and Alpine. The functional grill, mini fridge and sink all motorize out, ready to be fired up for hungry crowds. The Alpine audio system, consisting of a Scion/Alpine premium head unit, Type-R SPR-17S speakers, SWR-1042D 10-inch sub and a PDX-5 5-channel amp, turns this mobile kitchen into a party. Party’s over? No problem, the xD motorizes back into a fully street legal vehicle!

The Epic Cartel tC is a fully overhauled tC with a three-inch roof line chop. Remove the glass roof and B-pillars, add custom paint, seats and a big Alpine system, and you’ve got a one-of-a-kind tC. The Alpine system starts with an IVA-W505 in the dash and Type X speakers. Power comes from three PDX-1.600 amps, two PDX-4.150 amps and four SWR-1042D subs installed in the rear, which are only visible when the motorized hatch cover opens up.

Check out this video and photos from the event!

Thanks for Rockin' the Dash!
This summer-long online music contest gave over 2,000 artists a rousing opportunity to showcase their music and share their talent with new and loyal fans. We'd like to thank you all for breathing life into Rock the Dash 2 !

At Alpine, we hold a deep-seated passion for music, and we continue to incorporate that passion into bringing you the best sound quality experience on the road. Whoever said music is a universal language, wasn’t kidding. At Rock the Dash, take a listen to an assortment of songs, from true-rooted hip hop to heart-pumping rock, from a wide diversity of music artists.

The end result of the contest was to let the fate of the winners rest in the hands of the voters. That's right, we kept it for the people, by the people! The votes are in and the grand prize winner, Blessed End, hailing from the Lone Star state, took 1st place; followed by Foot Soldier, of Ontario Canada, in 2nd place; and David Segovia of North Carolina, in 3rd place. They’re just the cream of the crop – dig down deep and find many more unique talents that might vie for your attention.

Both artists and fans had a chance to win –to see what they’ve won, see the official rules. Thanks to all who participated!

And now… though the contest may be over, the music lives on.
