Every shop needs an outrageous vehicle to showcase its skills. Something to make the other shops go, Damn I wish we could do that. Savas Tires and Wheels put together its Red Dragon Celica just for this purpose. The cars exterior shade of Absolutely Red and extreme body mods dont draw nearly as much attention as a free NSync concert would, but its the multimedia extravaganza within this car thats the big ticket.
Ivan Vazquez and the rest the guys at Savas enlisted the help of the crew at Creative Car Audio in Sante Fe Springs, California, to work their A/V magic on the Dragon. Starting with Alpine components in the dash, the car was given all types of movie-watching, CD-playing goodness in the form of a DVA-5205 DVD/Video CD/CD player and not one, but two, CHA-S624 6-disc CD changers. The video content then runs through an IVA-C800 CD receiver/mobile multimedia station with 6.5-inch LCD screen. The audio signal flows down the arteries of patch cable to a pair of Precision Power amplifiers mounted in the rear, where its pumped up to the tune of 500 watts with the help of a pair of Optima Red-Top batteries and a Tsunami power capacitor. The four-channel PC4400 kicks out 50 watts apiece to each of the four corners, where a 6.5-inch PPI component set nestled snugly in the factory locations stands by ready and willing . A second PPI amp feeds 300-plus watts to a vicious trio of JL 12W6 subs mounted in three enclosures. Two of the subs flank a full-size spare in the rear of the hatch mounted in molten red fiberglass, while the third is mounted in a volcano-like enclosure that fires towards the roof of the car and is angled toward the occupants.
IOne would think music and video would be enough to keep the Dragon happy for a long flight, but no, alas there is also a Nintendo 64 game system tucked away in the dash cavity. The controller ports look like they were placed in the dash at the factory. Knight in shining armor or not, everyone enjoys movies, music, and a good game, and were sure this dragon can help Ivan pick up his share of fair maidens.
