Scion Uncovers the Ultra-Blue xB Release Series 8.0

Scion xB RS 8.0

Another year, another Scion Release Series. This time it’s the xB RS 8.0, which will be officially unveiled in a few days at the 2010 LA Auto Show.

As the name suggests, this will be the eighth version of the limited-run RS xB. What does Scion have in store for this one?

First up, and perhaps most obvious is an all new color, something Scion calls “Voodoo Blue.” It doesn’t have quite the depth of the “Speedway Blue” found on the recent Scion tC RS 6.0, but looks really good. Wearing the new color is an all-around body kit styled by Kenstyle, who has done the RS body kits for Scion in the past. In addition to the Kenstyle logo shamelessly placed behind the front wheel well, the body kit gets a front, rear lower valance, and side skirts. An optional rear spoiler is also available for $320.

Inside, you’ll get color-matched everything, including a black fabric with blue highlights seating surface, RS logo floor and cargo mats, and a cool new illuminated numbered badge – that’s a first for me. You’ll also get a power tilt & slide sunroof as standard.

As usual, only 2,000 xB RS 8.0s will be produced, and start at $18,405 for a standard transmission. For more, head over to the xB RS 8.0 official page or check out the interesting YouDo VooDoo interactive Youtube channel. Also make sure to check out the photo gallery below, especially the illuminated numbered badge.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
