It looks like the Scion FR-S will be one of the major stars at this year’s SEMA Show. Scion prepared no less than four concept cars based on the FR-S , and we are pretty sure we will see more than these in Las Vegas.
One of the four concepts was designed in cooperation with Bulletproof Automotive and transforms the obedient FR-S into a 500-horsepower beast with an exterior paint conversion inspired by Lamborghini.
A base FR-S delivers only 200 horsepower, so you can imagine that taking it up to 500 horsepower required lots of work. To achieve this massive number, Bulletproof installed a new, Powerhouse Amuse turbo kit with a EFR 6758 turbocharger, new titanium turbo downpipe and front pipe, 86.5 mm overbore pistons, upgraded rods and ACL bearings. There is also a new Amuse Titan Extra STTI exhaust system. The concept can run on both 91 octane and E85 fuels.

Scion FR-S Concept One by Bulletproof Automotive in Detail
The exterior was updated with an authentic Lamborghini white paint conversion and a wide-body kit in semi-dry carbon. The hood received a new cooling system with NACA duct in carbon fiber, there is a huge rear wing and a center mount also in carbon, while the new front bumper is also made in carbon fiber.
The headlights now feature dual HID projectors with black housing and gold accents, the taillights now feature red LEDs, and the exterior mirrors are made in carbon fiber.
For the interior, Bulletproof opted for a full red Alcantara conversion, a custom steering wheel wrapped in carbon fiber and Alcantara, Recaro RS-G seats with red Alcantara finish and Willans four-point racing. A Cusom eight-point roll cage custom painted gold ensures increased protection.
The new Concept One FR-S sits on 19-inch Rays Volk wheels wrapped in Toyo R888 tires sized 265/30ZR19 up front and 295/30ZR19 at the rear. The wheels are combined with a new brake system featuring six pistons up front and four on the rear. A new racing suspension with external tank brings the car closer to the ground.
