2016 Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 Priced From $30,005
The 2016 Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 has been announced.
Featuring a unique Lunar Storm paint shade, the 2016 Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 will be priced from $30,005 including destination when equipped with a manual transmission. An automatic transmission will have a $1,100 premium. The FR-S Release Series 2.0 will be limited to just 1,000 units and is the most exclusive Scion Release Series model yet.
Along with the Lunar Storm exterior, the special FR-S also gets 17-inch forged alloy wheels and a unique aero kit that features spoilers on both the front lip and the trunk. Both pieces are subtle and flow nicely with the sports car’s bodylines.
Many of the upgrades are in the cabin with heated seats finished in black Alcantara and leather with camel-colored accents. The same two-tone black and camel theme carries over to the leather-trimmed steering wheel, while the shift knob and parking brake lever are covered in black leather. Camel trim can also be found on the door armrests and upper trim, while Scion opted to finish off the knee pads and center armrest in black. Found throughout the interior is camel accent stitching and embroidered on the dash insert is the release series badge, sequentially numbered from 1 to 1,000.
Buyers will also get smart key with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control and HID headlights with LED daytime running lights.
“The FR-S is well known for being a fabulous sports car, and now we’re taking it up a notch in the luxury arena,” said Scion vice-president Andrew Gilleland.
