Scion Announces Pricing for 2013 tC Release Series 8.0

July 10, 2012
TORRANCE, Calif., July 10, 2012 -- Scion announced pricing today for its 2013 tC Release Series 8.0 (tC RS 8.0). Only 2,000 of the specially equipped sports coupes will be made and they will be available at dealer showrooms later this month. The tC RS 8.0 will be on display in the Scion pit area at the next round of Formula DRIFT in Monroe, Washington on July 22-23.

The 2013 tC RS 8.0 commands attention as it comes exclusively in Absolutely Red exterior paint with contrasting gloss black side view mirrors and matching black 18-inch alloy wheels. The tC’s aggressive exterior is further stylized with a unique five-piece body kit that was inspired by Troy Sumitomo of Five Axis that includes front and rear lower valences, side skirts and a rear spoiler.

To give the car even more attitude, the tC RS 8.0 comes with a couple of performance parts from Toyota Racing Development (TRD), including lowering springs and an exhaust system that is integrated into the center of the rear lower valence.

The interior of the tC features sporty seats that are wrapped in texturized black fabric with red stitching. The red stitching continues on the leather wrapped steering wheel. Each car comes with an individually numbered badge commemorating the unique model. When equipped with a six-speed automatic, the tC RS 8.0 features race-inspired steering wheel mounted paddle shifters for both sporty and convenient shifts.

The limited edition model will carry a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $21,815 and $22,865 when equipped with a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission respectively. The MSRP does not include a delivery, processing and handling fee of $730. DPH fee for vehicles distributed by Southeast Toyota (SET) and Gulf States Toyota (GST) may vary.
