As you'd expect, the CLC adopts the aggressive front end of the new-generation C-Class with its dual trapezoidal headlights and does away with the classic, round quad headlights.

2005 Scion XB Bosozoku - This Is Sick

Crazy is probably the most-used adjective to describe Arthur Fong's '05 Scion xB. With the custom fiberglass body components, the all-wood teahouse interior and those wings(!), Arthur's xB is a show car like no other. Arthur will be the first to tell you that his design is polarizing, for as many people who hate it, there are equal amounts of those who love it. But to us at Super Street, it is something different while also being very well executed. To build the xB, the Art Center College of Design student spent two years painstakingly doing things by trial and error until meeting Ben Abutin of High End Performance and Freddy Fernandez of Auto Fashion, who helped put the pieces of the xB's unique puzzle together into the package you see now.
