The Release Series 7.0 includes a four-piece body kit from Japanese firm DAMD, and is solely available in a special “Murasaki” (Japanese for “purple”) paint color. Toyota Racing Developments provided the center-exit performance exhaust, along with the 1-inch suspension drop.
Inside, the RS 7.0 receives special mesh seat covers with embroidered cushions, along with a leather-wrapped Razo shift knob. To illustrate to your friends that it is a limited-edition vehicle, a numbered dash plaque will be placed to the left of the steering column.
Equipped with a five-speed manual transmission, xB Release Series 7.0 models start at $18,890, including a $670 destination charge. With the four-speed automatic, that figure moves to $19,940.
Look for these cars to arrive at Scion dealers later this month, but don’t expect them to last long — only 2000 examples will be built.
