Scion has announced the special edition tC Release Series 8.0 (tC RS 8.0) - a model which will be on display in the Scion pit area at the next round of Formula DRIFT in Monroe, Washington on July 22-23, 2012. There will only be 2,000 units built, with prices going from $21,815 for the models equipped with a six-speed manual up to $22,865 for the models equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Scion tC Release Series 8.0 will be painted exclusively in Absolutely Red combined with contrasting black on the side view mirrors and on the 18" alloy wheels. Next to this paint scheme, the tC RS 8.0 will also receive an exterior kit inspired by Troy Sumitomo of Five Axis: front and rear lower valences, side skirts, and a rear spoiler.

For the interior, the Scion tC will get sporty seats wrapped in texturized black fabric with red stitching, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and an individually numbered badge commemorating the unique model.

Scion is also offering a series 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.

It’ll be great since they are using the Toyota performance parts.

hose upholstered seats are more comfortable on what it seems.

The upholstery of this Scion is one of the best features it has.

This is an ordinary car, but very affordable to all buyers.

Do you think that this Scion will garner attention in the state of Washington? I can’t wait for its sporty seats that Scion is acquiring to, and it also has performance parts from Toyota.

It still offered at a good price of $22,865, a better competition price tag.

It’s good that Scion considered having performance parts from Toyota. So they will have now lowered springs and new exhaust system.
