Special Edition "Onyx" Yaris


Available only in the South Eastern part of the U.S. (Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee), the Toyota Yaris "Onyx" adds a few unique dealer-installed options. Special goodies include:

- Bongiovi radio with iPod interface
- 17" Enkei wheels with upgraded tires
- Lighted door sills
- Carbon fiber dash trim
- Custom red fender stripe
- Custom shift knob
- Stainless steel exhaust tip
- Euro rear spoiler
- Window tint
- Custom badging
- Bluetooth capacity
- Limited edition numbered key chain
- Only 200 produced

Although there is a link to the Onyx on some of Toyota's Web site, a lot of the above information was actually located on a Toyota Yaris Onyx Wikipedia page. According to some members at Yarisworld.com, the Toyota configurator the Onyx tacks on $2,794 above the price of a normal Yaris.

I wonder if they'll do similar regional editions for the rest of the country- same equipment but a different color for each area.

I don't think any other areas have a car like this in different colors. But what a great idea!

They could make a Yaris SPLASH for the north east "kennedy" area. Color could be water or blood red. It could come with a blood alcohol tester installed.

They could make a Pelosi version with the sheet metal stretched tightly over the frame and the windshield squinting. This one coulde be called the Yaris STUPIDO.

The south central version. The Yaris BOOOSH. Combining some Texas sand color with a bit of Skull and Bones badging.

Finally they could make the Yaris OBAMA. This one would be available everywhere and would have to have a radio that only played apologies for our nation. Naturally it would be available for free to those who qualified as non-productive members of our society. The rest of us will have to pay for it though. Color? A nice Marxist red, of course.
