SCION FR-S officially revealed

Last of the three - Toyota 86, Subaru BRZ and today - Scion FR-S has been officially revealed. Nothing that we didn't already know since the Gazoo Racing Motorsports Festival and journalist test drives. But a brand new set of photos of slightly different interior and exterior photos - always welcome!

SCION FR-S - SCION FR-S


You can pretty much copy and paste the information about its twins — the not-for-the U.S. Toyota GT 86 and the Subaru BRZ — and apply it to the Scion because the specs of the low, light, driver-focused cars all basically the same.

You can also copy and paste the design from either one of those otherwise almost identical cars (the grilles are slightly different). What's the most popular aftermarket option for the FR-S going to be? Our guess is badge swaps. But the 86 boxer logo is already on the side vents!

Right up front, both literally and figuratively, is the horizontally opposed boxer four-cylinder engine with D4-S injection and the all-important 86 mm x 86 mm bore and stroke (it's so important they put the 86 badge on the car twice). Power is said to be 200 hp at 7,000 RPM and 151 lb-ft of torque at 6,600 RPM.

Nothing fancy to explain the FR-S: F for Front-engine, R for Rear-wheel drive, and S for Sport. This isn't a detail you're going to need to know much of in a few months when you can order it. Just walk into any Toyota/Scion dealer and ask for "the fun one."

All the differences from its brothers, FR-S has sligthly different front and rear fascia, side-vents, and interior. And a weird looking stereo head unit. The interior is lovely though - all black, except for red stitches un wheel and shifter, as well as red upper corners of the bucket seats.

"Serving as a laboratory for Toyota, Scion is always experimenting with new things," said Jack Hollis, Scion vice president. "The brand is iconic with the xB, adrenalized by the tC, and groundbreaking with the iQ. The FR-S will no doubt serve as the halo car, expanding Scion into a new dimension of driving performance."

The venue where they debuted the car was full of other sporty Toyota vehicles like the 2000GT, AE86, MR2 Turbo, Lexus LFA, and even a Supra Turbo. At another room you could spot a "tuned" version of Scion FR-S by Greddy.

Greddy seems to be the first aftermarket company that got its hands on the car (besides Toyota`s TRD). Greddy is also rumored to be the designer of Ken Gushi Scion FR-S drift car for the next Formula D season!

The FR-S was introduced by the head of Scion - Jack Hollis.

By the way, you can already start to virtually build your Scion FR-S order - http://www.frs-scion.com/create/ , but its just color and gearbox selection for now.

The bad news for the world - Scion is only available in US. The bad news for US - Toyota and Subaru versions might not be available in US. The good news about Scion is the rumors that it will be a lot lower priced than its relatives BRZ & 86. We see there are no fog lights or fancy head unit, but the price difference should be much more impressiv than just these little add-ons. Stay tuned!
