We know that snowboarders are the kind of free-spirited people that enjoy the simple thrills of life, but even they would probably rather be caught dead than ride this piece of work of a Scion.

As with many cars that are headed to the SEMA Auto Show, some are there to impress and some are there to, well, "attract attention." Guess which category we think this Scion xB belongs in?

To be fair, Scion claims that the xB Numeric is a car that has been "re-created, re-invigorated, and re-developed in such a unique manner." To that, you’ll find no qualms from us.

Among the many eye-popping features of this very interesting ride begins with a 686 Breathable Fabric Wrap, a roof that was inspired by a Bern protective carbon fiber helmet, complete with the company’s patented brim technology and ’frameless’ windows that took its design cues from Dragon’s APX frameless goggle, offering a full peripheral view inside the car. Other exterior modifications include a new 686 Vader Vent Mesh Grille and set of 18" Motegi Rally Wheels wrapped in New Balance Wet Race Tires.

Inside the Scion xB Numeric, it gets a little more interesting. The first item of note are the new Sparco race seats that were inspired from Union team snowboard bindings. The car also has visual racing mirrors from GoPro, custom built time gauges from Vestal watches, heated floormats from Freewaters sandals, a heating and cooling system from BOA technologies, radar technology from Recco Rescue Systems, a comprehensive audio set-up courtesy of Skullcandy, and Spin Imaging’s interior vehicle wrap technology, which was responsible for successfully wrapping the xB Numeric, complete with laser-welded seams, stitched panels, mesh venting, and even a waterproof zipper.

I really don’t like the exterior look of this Scion car. I wonder how can the people inside see things outside if the window is tinted in that color. The concept was a mess.

I was surprised by seeing the window was also colored. It was a nice car for snowboarding. Well, it will be more famous if they also allow it on wake-boarding. The surfers will surely catch this one.

Yes, the combinations of light colors are very catchy to the interest of people. It was confusing to be a racing car. Like what the other said the interior is important to be discuss and engine is much importance to focus and enhance.

This Scion Racing can really captivate lots of attention on its too colorful body paint, and I must say that I’m so impressed at that. smiley Well, I just only hope that it also had an impressive interior.

This new look of this XB is absolutely very striking and so artistic. I hope that they also include some pictures of its interior, and I was hoping that the engine of it, is good enough for this one.
