The Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 is now on sale with a no-haggle price of $29,990. The Release series 1.0 is the first special edition of the FR-S, and comes with a couple TRD performance upgrades in addition to the usual visual accoutrements.
FR-S Release Series 1.0 models will come with a bright yellow paint job called Yuzu, as well as a full lip kit and HID headlight with LED daytime runners.
Inside, the Release Series 1.0 FR-S has a TRD steering wheel, TRD shift knob, unique black seats, a TRD logo cargo mat and a Smart Key with push button start.
A TRD cat back exhaust will add about 15 horsepower while a set of TRD lowering springs will stance the FR-S Release Series 1.0 while giving the already sharp handling car a bit more edginess.
What’s surprising is that this is the first special edition of the FR-S. Scion has released 10 xB Series editions and eight tC Serieses, about one a year. With sports cars, special editions push interest long into a model’s life (just look at Aston Martin and Porsche) so expect to see more special edition and Release Series FR-S models over the next couple years.
