Scion is not going away quietly. With a final Kei Miura-inspired tC Release Series 10.0. The tC RS 10.0 will radiate in Barcelona Red and is equipped with a Kei Miura designed Aero Kit that includes a front lip spoiler, rocker panels, rear lower spoiler and a deck spoiler. Providing contrast to the red paint, the RS 10.0 has black-out Scion badges and gloss black alloy wheels.
TRD performance lowering springs reduce the center of gravity for quicker turn- in, cornering and enhanced steering response. A TRD performance dual exhaust provides a deeper, more resonant, exhaust note.
On the inside, the black and red theme continues with sport-tuned seat inserts with red accent stitching. The same stitching complements the shift boot, parking brake cover and steering wheel. Exclusive Release Series carpeted floor and cargo mats, striking red seat belts and a Release Series sequentially numbered badge complete the package.
“For those enthusiasts looking for a piece of history, this is a great opportunity to own our best tC ever,” says Scion Vice President Andrew Gilleland. “With the TRD performance parts, the JDM Aero Kit and the screaming red and black color scheme, it’s a fitting tribute to Scion’s mission to build cars for younger customers.”
The tC Release Series 10.0 will be available with a 6-speed manual for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $23,190 or 6-speed sequential automatic transmission with paddle shifters with an MSRP of $24,340. A delivery, processing and handling fee of $795 is excluded in the price. Only 1,200 RS 10.0 tC coupes will be available beginning in June.
