As the Detroit Auto Show approaches, more vehicles that will be on display are coming to light. Today Scion announced the xB Release Series 6.0, the latest in its limited-edition Release Series (RS) line of vehicles.

Starting at just $1,743 over the base xB's pricing of $16,420, the RS 6.0 will get a specific range of features and Scion promises that only 2,500 of the cars will be built - though whether it will have any significant impact on resale value is up in the air.

The RS 6.0 is available in just one choice of exterior paint: Absolutely Red. Other features include a unique black front grille, Release Series wheel covers and an optional color-keyed rear spoiler.

Interior features include satellite navigation, Bluetooth phone connectivity, HD Radio and DVD/iPod video playing capability. The Absolutely Red theme is carried inside as well, with RS 6.0 logo door sills, interior trim pieces and seat fabric.

All RS 6.0 vehicles will also get unique badging to identify them as part of the limited run. The factory-custom xBs will be available at Scion showrooms starting in February.
