Following the February announcement that Scion would transition to Toyota and do away with the name, the car brand offers up one last special edition — the Kei Miura-inspired tC Releases Series 10.0.
Debuted at the New York International Auto Show late last month, the special tC model was created in a partnership with Kei Miura, known for his JDM aerodynamic designs; and boasts enhanced performance, and aggressive exterior and interior features.
The tC RS 10.0 sports a Barcelona Red exterior color, while 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.
Scion adds TRD performance lowering springs to reduce the center of gravity for quicker turn-in, cornering and enhanced steering response, as well as a TRD performance dual exhaust for a deeper, more resonant, exhaust note.
On the interior, 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.
The tC Release Series 10.0 will be limited to just 1,200 units and is slated for release in June, starting at $23,190 USD for the 6-speed manual or $24,340 for the automatic. For more info, visit the site here.
