With Scion's FR-S sports auto car getting so much love nowadays, the revered tC, beforehand Scion's sportiest model, was conceivably in threat of being neglected. We say "was" on the grounds that with the dispatch of the new two-tone Scion tC Release Series 9.0, the sketchy little hatchback car is turning heads once again.

Speaking to Scion's cooperation with Jeremy Lookofsky's Cartel Customs of Simi Valley, California, the tC Release Series 9.0 brings show car looks to the Scion showroom. Known for giving impressive blast to the buck, the quality suggestion of Scion's lively roadster is further upgraded. This, in blend with space for four grown-ups,and reasonable cargo capacity , makes the 2015 Scion tC rate more than a second look.Based on a concept car created for custom car shows, if the standard Scion tC looks a bit tame to you, the tC Release Series 9.0 will check your extroversion box quite neatly. The limited edition color combination of magma orange and black graces both the exterior and interior—even the door handles are rendered in black against orange.

Unique exterior features also include a center-mounted exhaust outlet, a Cartel Customs-designed aero kit, and a sinister-looking set of black alloy wheels with matching center caps. Also, for the first time ever on a production model, the Scion logo is blacked out. Meanwhile, inside, it’s all about the orange from the custom stitching and front seat belts, to a long list of assorted painted details.

Perhaps predictably, the Scion tC Release Series 9.0 is billed as a bona fide custom. “There won’t be a way to miss the Scion tC Release Series 9.0,” says Scion vice president Doug Murtha. “This two-toned tC offers Scion fans an everyday driver straight out of a car show.”Power comes from the same 2.5-liter inline four found in other tC models, good for 179 horsepower and 172 ft-lbs of torque. A six-speed manual transmission feeding the front wheels is the standard offering while a six-speed automatic with Scion’s Dynamic Rev Management technology is offered as an option. 

New for the 2015 model year, the automatic comes with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. Fuel economy, regardless of the transmission choice, is rated at 23 miles per gallon in the city, 31 on the highway, and 26 combined.Scion’s tC safety features include stability and traction control, antilock brakes, four disc brakes, front knee airbags, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and active front headrests.NHTSA says the tC piled on five stars in general accident insurance, four in frontal effect assurance, and five for side effect security. The IIHS appraised the tC as "Great" (its most noteworthy positioning) in moderate cover frontal counterbalance crashes, and in addition side effect and rooftop quality testing. It dealt with the second best score in the intense little cover frontal accident testing, and "Great" for whiplash security .Pricing starts at $23,190 with the manual transmission, and $24,340 with the automatic. Standard features include 18-inch black alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, power accessories, a panoramic sunroof, Bluetooth telephony and audio streaming, a touchscreen interface, and an eight-speaker Pioneer audio system.Interesting to the Series 9.0 are a brought down ride tallness graciousness of a TRD suspension pack, the Cartel logo on the starter catch, and the discharge arrangement number with the Cartel Customs logo and Jeremy Lookofsky's signature on the mirror lodging. 

Accessible merchant introduced alternatives incorporate foglights, TRD execution equipment for the powertrain, and a redesigned touchscreen system offering route and cell phone application network. The Scion tC Release Series 9.0 is being restricted to a run of 2000 autos.
