A “walkaround” video offering a closer look at the SLAYER-inspired Scion car “Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC” which will make its debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, November 4-7, can be seen below.
Frequently cited for its deep influence on other metal bands, SLAYER has a look, sound and approach all its own. The band’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. Mike Vu of MV Designz is leading the build process.
“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.”
“Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC” will join a diverse collection of modified Scions at SEMA, including three FR-S sport coupes designed by media partners as part of the 10th annual Scion Tuner Challenge. While the SEMA show is not open to the public, there will be opportunities to see the Slayer tC and Skate Tour xB at Scion events later in the year.
“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 the members of SLAYER envisioned for the tC and encourage fans to imagine for themselves.”
