The FR-S RS1 is limited to 1,500 vehicles and comes with a collection of
enhanced features, including a TRD steering wheel, custom aero kit and side
fender garnish. Scion revealed the FR-S Release Series 1.0 at the 2014 New York
Additional highlights include the TRD Quad Tip Exhaust System, TRD lowering springs and Smart Key with Push Button Start. If all those additions aren't enough to turn heads, the bright Yuzu exterior paint color will definitely catch some attention.
"It's fitting that the first Scion FR-S Release Series draws on the rich motorsports history that inspired the FR-S design while standing out in new ways that will excite our drivers," said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. "FR-S enthusiasts will appreciate the side spoilers and lowered stance that deliver a look and feel meant for the track, at a price meant for them."
The series vehicles will come with either six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management technology. The manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) will start under $30,000, excluding the delivery, processing and handling (DPH) fee of $755.
Additional FR-S Release Series 1.0 features include:
TRD shift knob
Black seats with T-pattern
HID headlamps with LED daytime running lights
Dual auto AC
TRD logo cargo mat
Each vehicle will feature its sequential release series badge (1 of 1500) inlayed on its brushed aluminum shifter surround plate. The cars are expected to arrive in dealerships in August.
