Speaking of Release Series, Scion’s Release Series (RS) of limited-edition, factory-tuned-and-accessorized vehicles has been a big hit in America’s urban jungle. The automaker’s latest effort, the ’13 tC RS 8.0, is easy to spot thanks to its exclusive Absolutely Red paint with contrasting gloss black sideview mirrors, unique five-piece body kit that was inspired by Troy Sumitomo of Five Axis, and matching black 18-inch alloy wheels.

The tC’s beauty is more than skin deep, as the captivating coupe also sports performance parts from Toyota Racing Development (TRD), including lowering springs and a trick center-exit exhaust system that is integrated into the center of the rear lower valance.

Inside, the tC features sport bucket seats wrapped in texturized black fabric with red stitching. The red stitching continues on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. As always, each car comes with an individually numbered badge commemorating the unique model.

The 2,000-unit model run will have a price tag of $21,815 per copy for six-speed manuals and $22,865 when equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.
