click above image to view more detail shots of the Ron English Scion tC

It's Warhol again, with his dictum that "art is what you can get away with." Exhibit A: a purple scion bedecked in buttons of "ying-yang" art that randomly light up like a christmas tree. Look closely at the pic above and you can see that some yin-yangs are brighter than others because they're lit through the bodywork. We're not especially big fans of the billet wheels, eiher. There's something a bit too, oh... ugly... about them. Nevertheless, the car got our attention (it was blinking, after all), and isn't that what art is supposed to do? The neatest things about the car for our money (or our show pass, as it were), were the holograms over the windows with some 3-headed alien chicken-looking-thing, and an Eragon-ish dragon. The actual artwork on the car was done by pop artist Ron English, whose other well known work is starting to freak us out. Follow the jump for the full specs, and be sure to check out the gallery of hi-res pics.

      This article should have been entitled "Ugliest. Scion. Ever."

      go over to edmunds if you want bland coverage.
      the windows are cool.

      "whose other well known work is starting to freak us out. " holy crap your not kidding.

      Thank God, this is really getting tiring. Why don't you tell your boss to setup a separate SEMA site?

      Looking forward to some coverage on cars we might actually want drive.

      Thanks

      I wish Toyota and Scion would just stop building cars until they come up with something cool. Toyota has absolutly nothing of any value in their line up (god I hate the Prius, all those idiots pulling out infront of me, then doing 10mph under the speed limit) and Scion only has the TC, which aint all that great either...especially when you do that to it
