Detroit's debuts won't just be all-new concepts and productions; several automakers are announcing special-edition versions of existing models.
With its new Monogram Series, Scion hopes to embroider its name onto car shoppers' minds in association with premium features. The Toyota-owned brand announced today that the limited-edition versions of the 2014 FR-S and tC — debuting at the 2014 North American International Auto Show next week in Detroit — outfit the coupes with a host of premium features. The Monogram Series' first run will include only 2,000 of the FR-S rear-wheel-drive sports car and 2,500 of the tC front-wheel-drive coupe, both are set to hit dealerships in February.
In the FR-S, standard Monogram features include leather seats with Alcantara simulated suede inserts; a BeSpoke Premium Audio system with navigation and connected services; high-intensity-discharge headlamps with LED running lights; dual-zone automatic climate control; heated front seats and side mirrors; a color-keyed rear spoiler; and a rear-seat center armrest. The Monogram FR-S starts at $28,155 with a six-speed manual transmission and $29,255 with a six-speed automatic, plus an additional $395 for the exterior Whiteout color. Base 2014 FR-S models start at $25,455; all prices include a $755 destination charge.
