Slayer & Riley Hawk-Inspired Scion Vehicles to Debut at SEMA

Scion has announced that they will be debuting two new Scion cars at this year's Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association Show, a tC inspired by the heavy metal band, Slayer, dubbed the "Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC" and an xB inspired by professional skateboarder, Riley Hawk, that they're calling the "Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB."

Cited for their significant influence in the word of heavy metal music, Slayer has taken their aggressive style to the tC's exterior look and band-inspired details. Inside the vehicle has been transformed into a multimedia center with amps, speakers, a custom mixer, and a 32-inch monitor for media playback.

"Slayer's fans are going to be excited when we reveal what a metal-inspired Scion tC looks like," said Slayer guitarist, Kerry King. "Working with Scion has given us another way to reach new audiences and inspire them to keep going down their own paths."

Aside from skateboarding, Riley Hawk is also a rock 'n' roll aficionado and a huge fan of '70s style. The Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB embodies all three of these passions well with its high-end sound system, cargo space for skateboards, classic orange and yellow striped paint job, bubble windows, wood grain interior panels, 8-track player, and shag carpeting.

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

Mike Vu of MV DESIGNZ will be leading the build process for the Slayer tC while Scott Kanemura of KMA Productions will take the lead for the Skate Tour xB build. Both these vehicles will be a part of a diverse collection of modified Scions at SEMA this year including three FR-S sport coupes designed by media partners as part of the 10th annual Scion Tuner Challenge. Those who miss out on seeing the Slayer tC and Skate Tour xB at SEMA this year will have other opportunities to see the cars at future events later in the year.
