Scion will unveil the Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC” for heavy metal band Slayer and the “Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB” for pro skateboarder Riley Hawk.
Scion has announced plans to unveil two new concepts at this year’s SEMA show in November, which are inspired by metal, music and skateboarding. Scion will unveil the Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC” for heavy metal band Slayer and the “Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB” for pro skateboarder Riley Hawk.
Slayer’s aggressive style carries into the tC sports coupe’s exterior look and band-inspired details. Inside, the vehicle has been transformed into a multimedia machine with amps, towers of 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,” Slayer guitarist Kerry King said. “Working with Scion has given us another way to reach new audiences and inspire them to keep going down their own paths.”
The xB concept draws inspiration from Riley Hawk’s skateboarding career mixed in with his love of 70’s style and love of rock ‘n’ roll. Details like bubble windows, interior wood grain paneling, an 8-track player and requisite shag carpet make it a rolling, retro hangout spot.
“Every element of this Scion xB represents some part of my life,” Riley said. “I’m looking forward to showing it at SEMA and having people check it out!”
