2013 Scion tC special edition pricing announced

Scion has just announced only 2,000 of the 2013 tC RS 8.0 specially equipped sports coupes will be built and should begin appearing in showrooms by the end of the month.

The Absolutely Red vehicle (their terminology not ours) comes with black contrasting sideview mirrors and glossy matching 18-inch alloy wheels – producing a profile like a combustion accelerant on wheels – with the striking Scion logo on the hub.

This cool crimson coupe features a five-piece body kit, inspired by Troy Sumitomo of Five Axis, including front and rear lower valences, side skirts and a two-tone rear spoiler, complete with an RS 8.0 badge.

The bright red bundle of attitude comes with performance parts from Toyota Racing Development, comprised of lowering springs and an exhaust port centered in the rear lower valence. Paddle shifters are added to TRD-emblazoned steering wheel on the automatic transmission option.

On the inside, the tC RS 8.0 features seats for the sporting man or woman, wrapped in textured black fabric with contrasting red stitching, that continues along the leather wrapped steering wheel. Each one comes with its individually numbered badge commemorating the special edition.
