At the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show, Scion is revealing its latest limited-edition vehicle, the 2010 xB Release Series, xB RS 7.0. The model features a 4-piece DAMD body kit that includes front and rear lower lips along with side skirts and the xB is offered exclusively painted in a distinctive color, appropriately called Murasaki, which means purple in Japanese. One of the most important features of the model is the TRD sport muffler that exists out the center of DAMD rear lip. The exhaust system was specially designed in conjunction with the DAMD rear lip for a more sporty appearance and a sound that can only be found on this particular Release Series. The xB RS 7.0 is also equipped with TRD lowering springs the lower the ride over an inch and offer athletic handling. As an option, the carmaker offers a color-keyed rear spoiler. On the inside the car features exclusive black seats that match perfectly with the exterior of the vehicle. The driver is also treated with to a leather-wrapped RAZO GT Formula Spec shift knob that delivers a robust feel. The carmaker will only build 2.000 units and the first ones will begin arriving in dealerships in December. The starting price suggested by the manufacturer is $18.3220 for the one that sends the power to the wheels through a manual transmission and $19.270 for the ones equipped with an automatic one. A limited supply of the available color-matched rear spoiler will be available to xB RS 7.0 owners and carries a manufacturer suggested retail price of $320. The installation is not included in this sum. More information are available on the official Facebook page, where the vehicle is featured in the Musaki racing game.
