One of the most eagerly anticipated events at the 2012 SEMA Auto Show, at least in our book, is the presentation of the three cars competing in Scion’s annual Tuner Challenge. This year, the Toyota-owned automaker decided to give three of the country’s best builders a chance to create their own custom FR-S in time for SEMA.
The three - John Toca from Chicago, Illinois, Daniel Song from Orange County, California, and Chris Basselgia from Lebanon, Pennsylvania - were each given a stock FR-S model to work with. On top of that, they were allocated a budget of $15,000 and three months to finish their project.
Needless to say, with SEMA less than two weeks away, we expect all three custom FR-S models to be on the last stages of their development before heading over to Las Vegas. We’re pretty excited to see what these three talented builders did with their respective FR-S models.
But before we get a chance to look at each one of them, we’ll have to settle for this teaser video that Scion presented of the FR-S Tuner Challenge 2012.
