Scion's Release Series specials, based on regular production models, are a unique value with special equipment and options gathered in one package for a lower price (than if you chose them separately). The tC Release Special 9.0 was first shown at the 2014 SEMA show and was created from a corroboration between Scion and Cartel Customs to birth the two-tone sportster you see here. But the big news for you lovers of orange and black, the Scion tC Release Special 9.0 is now available at your local Scion dealer with prices starting at $23,190 for the manual transmission and $24,340 for the automatic transmission plus taxes, license, fees, and destination ($770).

Press Release:
Dual Threat: Two-Tone Scion tC Release Series 9.0 Available Now

  • Distinctive tC Brings Together “Show Car” and Bold Driving 

Double trouble has arrived in Scion dealerships. Scion paired up with Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs on the two-toned Scion tC Release Series 9.0. The new model combines style and substance and is based on a concept car developed for custom car shows.

A new walk-around video shows off the limited-edition color combination of magma orange and sleek black carried through both the vehicle’s custom exterior and interior. Even the front badge shows duality: the familiar Scion logo blacked out for the first time. Just 2,000 of these models have arrived in dealerships around the country, ready for purchase.

The Release Series 9.0 vehicles target drivers who feel at home both on the show floor and the open road. The unique exterior features a center exhaust, Cartel Customs-designed aero kit and eye-catching alloy wheels and matching caps. Inside, it’s all about the exotic orange: from the custom stitching and front seat belts to pops of painted details.

“There won’t be a way to miss the Scion tC Release Series 9.0 now that it has arrived in dealerships,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. “This two-toned tC lets Scion fans have an everyday driver that looks like it’s straight out of a car show…because it is!”

The series vehicles come with either six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management® technology. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) is $23,190 for the manual transmission and $24,340 for the automatic transmission, excluding the delivery, processing and handling (DPH) fee of $770.
