High Voltage yellow accents make their way into the tC’s interior with color-tuned black and yellow seat fabric, leather wrapped steering wheel with yellow stitching and an individually numbered badge. The tC RS 7.0 features Smart Key, a convenient keyless entry system that unlocks the doors with a touch of the door handle.

Scion will only build 2,200 units of the tC RS 7.0.

The MSRP does not include a delivery, processing and handling fee of $720.

The launch of the tC RS 7.0 will be launched with a new advertising campaign, starring a very lighthearted Zeus on his Mount Olympus throne, who describes himself as the God of Awesome -- and then creates the High Voltage tC using his legendary lightning bolt. With the help of a lovely Muse, Zeus has a great time driving the tC and highlighting its features. See the :30 spot at: http://www.scion.com/rstc/ or http://www.youtube.com/v/Sa1XbhJDN8k.
