DUB Magazine Builds an Avalon with Attitude for the SEMA ShowÚrban Lifestyle Mag Brings Signature Look to Toyota's Newest Ride
DÚB Magazine, a name synonymous wîth incredible wheels on cool custom cars wîth inner-city influence, has rendered its urban touch to the newest car in the Toyota lineup: the 2013 Avalon. In creating its latest ride, DÚB has taken the new Avalon where few, if any, have gone before. The magazine's unique take on the Avalon makes its debut on Oct. 30 at the Toyota booth in the 2012 SEMA Show.
'DÚB has proven here that the new Avalon makes a sharp urban ride,' noted Toyota Engagement Marketing and Motorsports National Manager Keith Dahl. 'Their modifications give it an aggressive, yet classy look that might have been unexpected in the previous generation.'
DÚB's signature look begins wîth big 22-inch TIS wheels wîth a matte black finish wrapped in ultra-low-profile Pirelli tires. The wheel/tire combo uses every millimeter of space in the wheel wells and combined wîth a lowered suspension, give the Avalon an audacious stance.
Taking the look a few steps further, DÚB deployed a well-integrated custom lower body kit, re-sprayed the exterior in Brilliant Black and de-chromed the body. Tinted windows and
taillights continue the theme and a custom mesh grille notably changes the front view.

The interior gets plenty of attention, too, wîth liberally applied suede accents on the console, door panels and headliner. The seats receive plush diamond-pattern suede inserts, wîth DÚB logos sewn into the seatbacks. And like the exterior, everything is black inside.
No urban ride would be complete without a pulsing sound system and the DÚB Avalon delivers. JBL provides the hardware and DÚB's designers used virtually all of the Avalon's generous trunk space to house three massive subwoofers and an impressive array of amplifiers. The clean installation belies the bone-shaking sound that surely awaits.
Starting Oct. 30, the DÚB Avalon can be seen along wîth eight other new and unique custom-built Toyota vehicles at the 2012 SEMA Show. They will be in Central Hall at the Toyota display booth #24801.
