Scion xB with Nintendo theme highlighted at Zen Garage exhibition in L.A.

Article by Christian A., on January 7, 2011

At the Zen Garage exhibition in Los Angeles, Scion has on display a custom xB that has a Nintendo theme. Scion is known to be a carmaker that seeks to attract young buyers and always offers vehicles that have a dynamic image.

The Nintendo Scion xB certainly fits the bill as the younger generation is obsessed with consoles.

Len Higa and Eric Namakura are the designers of this vehicle that features a retro gaming feel as it is finished in the colors of the Family Computer (also known as Famicom).

This is a classic gaming tool from Japan and represents a vital step in the history of video games. The car comes dressed in white and red, with a touch of grey.

The same color combination is seen in the interior, where a joystick, used as a gear shift lever, an arcade button, which serves as an ignition button and others can be seen.

The vehicle also received a projector in the left headlight and at the rear, among other cool features. You may visit the exhibition or you can simply view this clip uploaded by Giant Robot Magazine that shows Namakura presenting its features. [source Autoblog via Kotaku]
