Meet the Scion “Numeric” xB by 686!

“Numeric” is the name given to this extra special 2011 Scion xB. 686® and Scion Racing® in collaboration with Spin Imaging® designed and built the world’s first and only car solely dedicated to Snowboarding. For 686’s twentieth anniversary, they teamed up to develop a one-of-a-kind custom winter masterpiece. Each element of the build was motivated by a product and brand that’s progressively pushed Skateboarding and Snowboarding to new levels.

The exterior is bundled head-to-toe in custom features, from the New Balance tires to the Bern carbon fiber helmet roof. The xB is completely wrapped in 686 waterproof/breathable fabric, with waterproof YKK zipper pockets and Dragon APX mirrored frameless windows.

The interior has no shortage of fun and functional sporting gear. The Union binding swivel seats, Freewaters heated floor mats and Cadence steering wheel wrap are only a few of the many mountain-ready features. 686 did plenty of their own custom creation with the gear hangers, snowboard rack, boot rack and roll cage all stuffed comfortably inside. To top it all off, Marc Mckee from Blind provided custom artwork to add some cozy inside the cabin.

“Numeric” will be on display November 1-4 at the 2011 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. See the complete list of features below.
