Scion Targets xB Numeric at SEMA’s Snowboarder Crowd

No matter what sort of crazy car conversions you’ve seen so far, you are not ready to see what the Scion xB has been turned into. Basically, this funky looking creating is coming to the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas bearing a body that’s been what looks like fabric that’s been tailored to fit it like a glove. All the glass surfaces have also received the sort of mesh wrap that you see on busses for advertising.

The Scion xB Numeric, as the vehicle is called, is a the end result of the collaboration between Scion, 686, which makes premium snowboarding outerwear, and Spin Imaging, which took care of the wrap.

The xB’s new clothes are reportedly made of waterproof and breathable snowboarding outerwear, and the seams have been laser welded to make them weather resistant. Even the zippers you see on the side of the front doors and on the bumper are waterproof.

The exterior boasts some very interesting blue 10-spoke wheels, a set of suicide doors and a mesh grille. The windows are pillarless and the roof is made of carbon fiber.

Round the back you have 686-shaped exhaust tips and the whole car benefits from the extra attitude provided by a body kit. Inside, you have a custom roll cage, boat rack, snowboard rack and a special avalanche shovel and probe.
