Scion Teases Metal and Skateboard Inspired SEMA Cars

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 9/20/2014 Jason Udy

Each year, Scion traditionally brings a variety of fully-customized vehicles to the SEMA show in Las Vegas. Many of the tuned cars are inspired by extreme sports or pop culture and this year will be no different. A couple of Scion models coming to the 2014 SEMA show include a custom tC inspired by metal band Slayer and an xB customized by pro skateboarder Riley Hawk.

Along with its aggressive metal-inspired exterior and interior design, the Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC is fitted with audio and video equipment including amplifiers, speakers, a custom mixer, and a 32-inch monitor. The Slayer-inspired Scion tC is being built by Mike Vu of MV DESIGNZ.

“Slayer’s fans are going to be excited when we reveal what a metal-inspired Scion tC looks like,” Slayer guitarist Kerry King said in a release.

Meanwhile,the Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB combines pro skateboarder Riley Hawk’s (son of Tony Hawk) passion for skateboarding, rock music, and 1970s style in one vehicle. Inside, the customized Scion xB features room for skateboards, a high-end audio system (including an 8-track player), interior wood grain paneling, and shag carpet. Outside, the retro-inspired xB features an orange and yellow striped paint job and bubble windows. Scott Kanemura of KMA Productions is in charge of the project.

“Every element of this Scion xB represents some part of my life,” Hawk said. “I’m looking forward to showing it at SEMA and having people check it out!”

Other tuned Scion models heading to this year’s SEMA show include three FR-S coupes built for the Scion Tuner Challenge. We expect more details and vehicle announcements as the show approaches.
