The tC Release Series 10.0 marks Scion’s exit

Given the imminent demise of Scion, the brand's presence at the upcoming New York International Auto Show seems like a pointless money-wasting exercise. However, it's being treated as a final farewell to the marque (and, no doubt, an opportunity to persuade fans to switch their allegiance to Toyota).

As part of the commemorations, the tC Release Series 10.0 has been created. This limited edition coupé, which is finished in Barcelona Red paintwork, features numerous items inspired by the Japanese tuning scene.

The most obvious is a full body kit. Designed by Kei Miura, this comprises a front splitter, side sill extensions, a diffuser and a rear spoiler.

Gloss black alloy wheels and a TRD dual exhaust are also fitted, while ride-lowering TRD springs are intended to improve both the car's stance and its handling.

Inside, the specification includes unique upholstery and Release Series floor mats. Echoing the exterior colour scheme, contrast is provided by red stitching and red seatbelts.

Just 1,200 examples of the tC Release Series 10.0 are going to be built. In the United States, prices start from $23,190 (plus a $795 delivery fee) with a six-speed manual gearbox. Opting for a six-speed automatic transmission instead will add $1,150 to the cost.
