2009 LA Auto Show: 2010 Scion xB Release Series 7.0 Unveiled
Each year it seems that the LA Auto Show serves as the launch platform for the unveiling of a new special edition model from Scion. This year the company dropped the xB Release Series 7.0, a revitalized and jazzed up variant of their popular sport-ute. Only 2,000 limited editions will be built with each uniquely numbered. The show car, designated number 007, features a special purple hue known as “Murasaki” that has elicited visceral reactions, both good and bad.
The Scion xB Release Series 7.0 comes with lowered TRD springs that drop the vehicle’s height by a full inch. A four-piece DAMD body kit adds a lower front and rear lip, side skirts with a rear spoiler optional. A new sport exhaust system also is included with double-walled tailpipes.
The inside of this special edition from Scion is outfitted with black fabric seats incorporating highlights that match the exterior color with the “RS” logo is emblazoned on the upholstery. A RAZO GT Formula Spec shift knob is also included for a sporty vibe.
The 2010 Scion XB Release Series 7.0 will be priced at $18,320 for models with the manual gearbox, while vehicles with the optional automatic transmission will run $19,270. A $670 shipping and handling fee is also part of the transaction, but no additional assembly is required.
