Foot Model Strokes Scion FR-S Release Series 2.0 Dash in a Weird Way

Japan is full of weird fetishes, so we didn't have a problem with the fact that a woman's foot is stroking the dash of this Scion. At first, we just thought the marketing people had a weird acid trip, but there's a catch to help you understand what's happening.
The first FR-S Release Series was so popular that they decided to make a second one. Only this time, it's all about luxury, not drifting. We're not fooled into thinking the FR-S is a Mercedes doppelganger, but the woman attached to that foot might be.

That's why she's wearing an ankle bracelet and two toe rings - to show that she's classy. Plus, the Scion is so nice that they'd do anything to keep from getting fingerprints on it. Oh, now we get it!

The fact that Scion commercials are weird was clearly established when they showed a "brooding teenage vampire with a man bun" back in November. But I guess autoevolution shouldn't throw the first stone, since we've published all those videos of women driving in high heels.

The 2016 FR-S Release Series 2.0 is available with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and Dynamic Rev Management. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for one of these is $29,510 for the manual transmission and $30,610 for the automatic transmission, excluding the delivery fee of $795. We guess that when a Scion costs as much as the cheapest Audi, it needs fake luxury.

“The FR-S is well known for being a fabulous sports car, and now we’re taking it up a notch in the luxury arena,” said Scion Vice President Andrew Gilleland. “It’s the perfect car to take from the race track during the day to the red carpet that evening.”

To make the FR-S Release Series 2.0, Scion added HID headlights with LED daytime running lights. Unless we're mistaken, these were borrowed from the European GT 86. Discreet front lip and rear trunk spoilers were also included, together with 17-inch forged aluminum wheels from TRD. The car also comes in Lunar Storm paint that's unique to this model.

Additional luxury features include Smart key with push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control and camel leather used throughout that interior.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
