Lucas Oil KSR announced its racing version of the Scion FR-S at the 2012 SEMA Show and since then the model underwent extreme testing with the final challenge being the 2013 Pirelli World Challenge. The competition started on March 22nd with the GT/GTS Rounds 1 and 2 and will end on October 4th with GT/GTS Round 14.
Lucas Oil equipped the FR-S with the world’s first TRD supercharger built specifically for the sports car. It was enough to pump the 2.0-liter boxer-four engine’s output up to a total of 325 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. That’s an increase of 125 horsepower and 174 pound feet of torque. By our count, that’s a 62.5-percent increase in horsepower and a 115.2-percent increase in torque.
This hopped-up four-banger hooks up to a six-speed manual gearbox, but there is no mention to whether this is the stock transmission or not. Though Lucas Oil chose not to divulge the performance stats of its beast, we would venture to say it hits 60 mph in the mid-4-second range.
Lucas oil engineers also fitted the FR-S with an aerodynamic kit specially designed for the racing and sat it atop a set of 18-inch Rays TE37 SL Black Edition wheels. The Rays rollers are wrapped in high-performance Pirelli P-Zero tires sized 275/45R18. Also added in is a TRD braking system and a suspension system from Cusco/Vertex.

The FR-S is the American version of the Toyota GT-86 and was unveiled at the 2012 New York Auto Show . Just like its European brother, the FR-S draws its power from a 2.0-liter boxer engine that delivers a total of 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to a standard six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission.
This amount of output is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds and up to a top speed of 140 mph.
