Description

The Seared Tuner (Japanese:シーアード チュナー) was originally introduced in the 2000 First Editions line-up with the name "Sho-Stopper." On the interior piece of this casting, on the rear shelf below the rear window is a set of 4 speakers cast into the interior piece. This casting features a chopped roofline, widened bodywork, driver's side air intake on the bonnet, dual exhaust pipes (moulded into the base) and heavily modified grille and bumper.

This casting is among the first widely released imported Tuner-type models. The car was also featured on Hot Wheels packaging from late 2000 to 2003. The name was changed to Seared Tuner after what was rumored to be potential legal challenges, arose. The casting is based on a second-generation Mitsubishi Eclipse The b-pillar shape and angle, combined with the lines forming the taillights and the downforce tunnels on either side of the grille as well as the slope of the boot/trunk lid and the widened-out shaping of the rear fenders are the signs of this basis, as the front and other areas of the car were designed as custom parts.
