Scion tC Release Series 6.0 Details

Scion’s latest in their limited-edition RS line, the tC RS 6.0, will debut in a couple days at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. Only 1,100 of these puppies will be made, and will start showing up on showrooms in March with prices starting at $18,620 for a manual gearbox, $19,420 for the auto.

What makes this Release Series so special? First thing that caught my eye is that holy-shit-sexy blue paint job they gave it. Scion calls it “Speedway Blue” and it’s only available on this car. To accent the blue, they’ve added a matte black stripe down the side that displays the RS 6.0 name. I could deal without the stripe, but damn that blue is hot. The blue theme is carried into the interior as well, sporting seats with black fabric and blue accents, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel with blue stitching.

In the electronics department, Scion added a premium 200 watt Alpine audio system with navigation and a 4.3-inch touch screen, HD radio, and iPod integration (that’s not standard on all Scions?) The GPS unit is flash-based, which means it’s faster than the typical hard-drive or DVD-based systems.

I love the Scion Release Series line; it gives buyers a feeling a exclusivity and a sort of customization option, and they don’t cost much more than the base tC ($17,770.)

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
