Inside, the 2013 Scion tC Release Series 8.0 gets a reverse version of the red-on-black exterior scheme with a mostly black interior contrasted by red stitching on the steering wheel and on the seats. Each car will also get a unique, numbered badge on the leather-wrapped steering wheel to make the car even more individualized. The car's base price is for models with the six-speed manual gearbox, but for an extra $1,050, the tC Release Series 8.0 can be equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission that adds paddle shifters mounted to the back of the steering wheel. Other upgrades to the Scion tC Release Series 8.0 include a lowered suspension and exhaust system from Toyota Racing Development (TRD).
The starting MSRP for the 2013 Scion tC Release Series 8.0 does not include Toyota's $730 destination fee, and the fee could change for dealers in the Southeast Toyota and Gulf States Toyota areas.
