Since recently driving the 2014 Scion FR-S, I have been all in with this affordable little sports car. Already a favorite of car enthusiasts, the Scion FR-S enters a new model year more balanced and better than ever. With enhanced tuning and an upgraded appearance to match, the 2015 FR-S was built on its reputation for excellent driving dynamics and track-inspired style.

Now to make this car even more attractive, the wait to own the first Scion FR-S Limited Edition Series is finally over! Scion fans and racing enthusiasts can now get behind the wheel of the FR-S Release Series 1.0, a modern homage to the sports coupe’s racing roots. Revealed earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show, the FR-S Release Series 1.0 is now available at dealerships nationwide.

With just 1,500 Release Series 1.0 vehicles produced, FR-S enthusiasts must move fast to own the limited edition coupe. After the fun I had driving the FR-S, I can only imagine what the limited edition will be like, Striking with a coat of Yuzu exterior paint color, the Release Series 1.0 comes equipped with enhanced features from Toyota Racing Development, including TRD Quad Tip Exhaust System and TRD lowering springs.
