Scion xD rally car unveiled

Scion has unveiled their new xD rally car which will compete in the Rally America National Championship.

Set to celebrate its racing debut at the Sno*Drift Rally on January 25th, the car features a new front bumper, a raised ride height and off-road tires. There's also Brembo brakes and enough LED lights to make Audi jealous.

The striped out interior has Sparco seats, a digital instrument cluster and a roll cage.

Detailed performance specifications were not released, but Scion says the car has a "dog engagement transmission and more horsepower."

According to Scion marketing and special events manager Steve Hatanaka, “Scion Racing is ready and thrilled to be a part of the 2013 Rally America National Championship. The combination of the xD subcompact, a top-notch team race team and one of rally’s best drivers, Andrew Comrie-Picard, is sure to create a competitive and exciting series.”
