Drivers of the 2016 Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 will look better than ever in the most stylish FR-S ever offered. The new FR-S Release Series 2.0 comes with some luxurious appointments and premium features, and with just 1,000 vehicles available, it’s the most elusive and exclusive Scion Release Series yet.
The interior creates the lap of luxury with heated seats in black Alcantara/leather with camel-colored accents. The same black and camel theme continues to the leather-trimmed steering wheel while the shift knob and parking brake lever are covered in black leather. Camel trim also appears on the door armrest and the upper door trim while the center armrest and knee pads are black. Camel accent stitching is prominent throughout the interior and embroidered on the dash insert is the release series badge, numbered from 1 to 1000.
Additional luxury features include Smart key with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control and HID headlamps with LED daylight running lamps.
On the outside, the Release Series 2.0 will make a statement with Lunar Storm paint and 17-inch forged alloy wheels. For added flair and distinction, a unique aero kit features spoilers on both the front lip and trunk.
“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. “It’s the perfect car to take from the race track during the day to the red carpet that evening.”
Err.. I highly doubt that anyone will be showing up to a red carpet in an FR-S. 🙂
The 2016 FR-S Release Series 2.0 will be offered with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management technology. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price will be $29,510 for the manual and $30,610 for the automatic.
