Scion Previews Sketchy 2014 SEMA Projects
Scion has released sketches previewing two additional projects heading to Las Vegas this year.
In addition to the SEMA Tuner Challenge FR-S competitors, Scion will also debut its Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC and Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB at this year’s SEMA Show. The custom tC will be built for heavy metal band Slayer while the xB will accommodate pro skateboarder Riley Hawk. Leading the build process for the tC is Mike Vu of MV DESIGNZ and the tC will feature a band-inspired look as it transforms into a multimedia machine with amps, towers of speakers, a custom mixer and a 32-inch monitor for media playback.
The xB’s versatility will be shown off with a high-end sound system, space for skateboards as well as a classic orange and yellow striped paint job. Subtle details on the xB project include bubble windows, interior wood grain paneling, an 8-track player and requisite shag carpet. That project will be led by Scott Kanemura of KMA Productions.
“SEMA is the ultimate opportunity to look at Scion vehicles through a new lens,” said Doug Murtha, vice president of Scion. “We’re looking forward to showing fans what Riley Hawk and the members of Slayer envisioned for the tC and xB and encourage fans to imagine for themselves.”
