Scion revealed the 2013 tC Release Series 8.0 (tC RS 8.0) and announced that the new model will be on display in the Scion pit area at the next round of Formula DRIFT in Monroe, Washington on July 22-23. Limited to just 2,000 units, the 2013 Scion tC Release Series 8.0 comes exclusively in Absolutely Red exterior paint with side mirrors in gloss black and matching black 18-inch alloy wheels.

The design of the car was upgraded with a unique five-piece body kit inspired by Troy Sumitomo of Five Axis. The kit includes front and rear lips, side skirts and a new rear spoiler. Moreover, we find a a couple of performance parts from Toyota Racing Development (TRD) such as lowering springs and an exhaust system.

The sporty theme is continued at the interior, where the vehicle features sporty seats wrapped in texturized black fabric with red stitching. Same red stitching is found on the leather wrapped steering wheel.

Because we are talking about a limited edition, all the models will feature an individually numbered badge commemorating the unique model. Pricing starts at $21,815 for the model equipped with the six-speed manual gearbox and at $22,865 when using the six-speed automatic transmission. Still, you will have to add the delivery, processing and handling fee of $730.
