Scion Release Series 1.0 Now On Sale, Costs $29,990


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.

Australia Gets Retro FR-S Special Edition


Australians get all the good stuff. Kangaroos, The Great Barrier Reef, video games that are somehow special enough to warrant a 300% price hike, Steve Irwin, Turbo Nissans/ Holdens/ Fords, and now a retro special edition Scion FR-S.


The limited edition BRZ, imaginatively named the 2015 Subaru BRZ Special Edition, will come with unique racing stripes, unique 17-inch wheels (remember when those were considered big? it was a simpler time), a black lip kit, an STI push button starter, a short shift kit, and a unique shift knob. Subaru Australia claims the 2015 BRZ Special Edition adds $9,000 worth of upgrades for a $3,500 premium. Only 125 of the BRZ Special Editions will be sold in Australia, so if you’re interested move quick.
