2013 Scion FR-S: Yellow?

2013 Scion FR-S

Yes, this car has been sold. But I have one more observation for you.

As a matter of course, I'm fairly tuned into colors, so I was rather surprised it took me so long to take notice of the factory tint on our 2013 Scion FR-S. It's yellow.

Most cars run a very light green or cyan tint, while others simply opt for neutral grey. As far as I know, the Scion is the only car with a factory yellow tint. Can you name another?

    Interesting. I've heard of people driving with glasses that have yellow lens to filter the blue out of lights (which our eyes don't see well with, and causes discomfort, or glare) and help cut down glare from other cars at night or reflected light from their own headlights during adverse conditions. This may be following the same premise.

    no, but after reading Scott's Corvette Blizzard story, it now has yellow carpeting.

    Didnt Infiniti use a yellow/bronze tint on there cars in the early to mid nineties?
