Built as a pit support vehicle for some unknown division of motorsport, the Pit Boss Cartel 2012 Scion iQ epitomizes over-the-top SEMA modification in pursuit of a largely pointless goal. But it still looks pretty cool.

The chopped, shaved, and otherwise cut-up iQ sports an air ride suspension, a mini-tub conversion, Wilwood six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers with two-piece rotors all around, and 18x8-inch front and 19x9.5-inch rear wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes 4 tires.

Inside it gets black carbon fiber details, a special tire rack and roll cage for its pit-support duty, 12-volt and 120-volt power outlets, and, of course, a potent Alpine stereo system.
