It's finally here - the first Release Series (RS) version of the Scion FR-S rear-wheel-drive sports car! And we can already sense this may be one of the most popular limited edition Scion to date. The FR-S RS 1.0 dropped at the 2014 New York International Auto Show on April 16, complete with a full accompaniment of Toyota Racing Development (TRD) gear. Let the drooling commence.

The Toyota Racing Development grip includes a quad tip exhaust system, lowering springs, steering wheel, shift knob, and cargo mat in the trunk. OK, so there's no sexy power adders like say a TRD blower or turbo, but let's not forget this is a budget-minded driver's coupe.

The FR-S Release Series 1.0 will also floss a custom-designed rear spoiler and side fender garnish color matched with the body in Yuzu yellow. She'll be outfitted with HID headlamps/LED daytime running lights a la the JDM Toyota 86 to boot.

In addition the Toyota Racing Development bits in the cabin, Scion threw in black seats with a T-pattern and convenience features like s Smart Key with push-button start and dual auto air conditioning. Finally, in keeping with Release Series trend, each FR-S RS 1.0 will feature its sequential badge inlayed on its brushed aluminum shifter surround plate.

Only 1,500 Toyota Racing Development touched Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 will be built and sold, and as mentioned we're fairly certain each will get picked up pretty quick. Expect them to hit dealerships this August with a manufacturer suggested retail price under $30,000.
