2015 Scion FR-S Release Series
Yuzu is an aromatic citrus fruit from East Asia that resembles a small grapefruit with uneven skin. It is also the name of the bright yellow color found on every example of the special edition FRS Release Series 1.0.
This limited run of 1500 vehicles offers a number features sourced from Toyota Racing Development, better known by its acronym TRD. These include lowering springs for improved handling and more aggressive profile, and quad exhausts. In the interior, the TRD features include the steering wheels, shifter knob, and logo cargo mat. Another nice touch is the smart key with push button start.
The custom aerodynamic kit includes a more aggressive front and rear bumper, rear spoiler, and side fender garnish.
All vehicles are numbered with a sequential release series badge inlayed on the brushed aluminum shifter surround plate.
MSRP is a $29,900, a $5000 premium over the standard FR-S.
