TORRANCE, California — Scion is marking the end of an era with the tuner-inspired 2016 Scion tC Release Series 10.0 hatchback, which arrives at Scion dealerships in June, following a debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show.
The tC Release Series 10.0 with a six-speed manual transmission starts at $23,985, including a $795 destination charge. The uplevel tC Release Series 10.0 with a six-speed automatic transmission is priced at $25,135, including shipping.
"For those enthusiasts looking for a piece of history, this is a great opportunity to own our best tC ever," said Scion Vice President Andrew Gilleland in a statement on Wednesday.
Toyota will build 1,200 tC Release Series 10.0 cars.
Details include Barcelona Red exterior paint and a Kei Miura-designed aero kit with a front lip spoiler, rocker panels, rear lower spoiler and a deck spoiler.
Other details include TRD performance lowering springs and a performance dual exhaust.
The cabin gets a black-and-red theme and a Release Series sequentially numbered badge.
Toyota is eliminating Scion, the brand aimed at the youth market.
But the tC will be discontinued. Production ends in August.
Edmunds says: This will be a collector's item in some circles, so it's best to get the conversation going with your Scion dealer if you want to get in line for one.
