The Scionslaught at SEMA continues! SEMA is supposed to be ridiculous and fun, so it's good to see Scion going all out with their concepts. The louvered FR-S is good, but it's not as metal as this badass Slayer-themed tC. Few things are as metal as this.

The Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC was designed by Mike Vu of MV DESIGNZ. It features a custom paint job full of fire and skulls (duh) and billet "sword blade wheels." Also, those are the most sinister headlights and front fascia I've seen this side of the new Lexus RC F.

But the big draw is the custom Pioneer sound system on the inside with a tower of speakers and a custom mixer. That's what Scion says, anyway. I'm more a fan of the skull-shaped gearshift knob and sword-shaped handbrake.

More photos over at the website Metal Sucks. I wish all Scions could be this metal.

The article should mention the purpose of this car for people that don't follow metal or Scion. Scion has been very supportive of metal bands and the community. They have a big annual tour with some big names and often sponsor smaller tours also (including Slayer this fall). They also have a media label that has been pretty involved too.

As a metal fan, I wish it was a company that I could be a little more excited about it's cars, but I'm happy that they are so supportive. It's actually impressive how much they do for music, not just metal.

Other car companies that would be cool to see metal tie-ins (the Odyssey ad doesn't count):

  • British companies like Jaguar and Morgan. So many Sabbath, Priest, and Maiden special edition possibilities. And have you heard an F-Type? Fucking metal.
  • Lincoln, because what do they have to lose?
  • I could actually see Dodge doing something metal with their performance cars.
  • Pontiac would have been a good fit (RIP).
  • Volvo could play up the Swedish metal angle (probably avoid mentioning church burnings though).

Jägermeister is a big sponsor of metal too and they also used to sponsor Porsche and BMW race cars, so there's that...
