Before making its final transition to Toyota, Scion will present its last new model at the 2016 New York Auto Show, next week.
It’s called the ‘tC Release Series 10.0’ and it was developed in a partnership with tuner Kei Miura. The vehicle is finished in Barcelona Red and is equipped with a Kei Miura-designed Aero Kit that consists of a front lip spoiler, rocker panels, rear lower spoiler and deck spoiler. Contributing to its look are the new alloy wheels, finished in gloss black, and the RS 10.0 black-out Scion badges.
Changes continue with the TRD performance lowering springs, which reduce the center of gravity, enhancing steering response, and the dual exhaust, providing a more resonant and deeper sound.
The same black and red theme is found inside, where the manufacturer added red contrast stitching on the seat inserts, parking brake lever, steering wheel and shift boot, joined by exclusive Release Series carpeted floor and cargo mats, red seatbelts and a numbered badge.
“We have a lot of fans that are sorry to see Scion being transitioned to Toyota,” said Gilleland. “But it’s the right thing to do, and we know the spirit of Scion will live on, so we are going out in style“, said Andrew Gilleland, Scion’s Vice President.
