Scion is Making A SLAYER Car!
And we thought a Slayer pizza was cool? There's going to be a Slayer car!
Scion is unveiling a one-of-a-kind “Scion x Slayer Mobile Amp tC” at SEMA, a Las Vegas national car show. The press release we just got about the car, whose rough sketch you can see above, describes the vehicle thusly:
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.”
Unfortunately, the SEMA event is not available to the public but Scion promise to display the car at other Scion events throughout the year. We've criticized Slayer for some shitty merch choices in the past: candy jars, St. Patrick's Day shirts and rings, but we fully support this venture.
