If there's one thing we can be sure to see at U.S. motor shows it's a limited production version of a Scion model. For the 2010 LA Show, Toyota's small car division has readied the 2011 xB Release Series 8.0 that will begin arriving in dealerships later this month.
The RS 8.0 is offered in a new color called Voodoo Blue, which is not currently available on any other Scion model, and is fitted with a four-piece body kit from Kenstyle that includes front and rear lower lips, side skirts and a $320 optional color-keyed rear spoiler. As with most RS models, there are no alloy wheels included in the package.
What you do get though is a sunroof, which features power tilt and slide function not currently available on regular xB models. Other interior upgrades include seats and door-panel trim covered in an exclusive black fabric with blue color-tuned highlights and unique floor mats embroidered in blue with the "xB RS 8.0" logo.
Scion plans to keep production limited to 2,000 units, each carrying a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $18,405 with a manual transmission, and $19,355 with an automatic transmission, not including a $720 delivery, processing and handling fee.
