The tuning specialists at Cartel King have turned a regular Scion xB into a stretch limo. The car measures 48 inches longer and it now has suicide-style doors. The xB’s powertrain was tweaked to include an AEM Air Intake, Cartel Straight Exhaust and a STRUP Performance Header. The chassis was made more rigid with the addition of a TRD Strut Bar in the engine bay.

The limo offers a softer ride due to the Cartel Custom Air Bag system. The rear factory suspension has been re-engineered to fit the new stretched body. The vehicle features a set of 20 inch Demoda Aviator wheels, covered in TOYO Proxes 4 235/30/20 tires.

To expand the vehicle by 48 inches, Cartel King used a custom Coachworks Stretch, new suicide doors and a new glass window. For this one-off model, fresh interior and exterior panels had to be fabricated from scratch.
