We’ve seen GReddy Racing do some pretty gnarly things on the Scion FR-S , and just when it seemed that we’d had enough of them, the aftermarket company is coming to the 2013 SEMA Auto Show with another heavily-modded FR-S.
This time, the official billing of this model is the FR-S Racing Drift and just like GReddy’s previous FR-S projects, this one comes with a ton of upgrades, highlighted by a GReddy turbocharged 2JZ-GTE engine. With that engine firmly installed on the FR-S, the Japanese sports coupe now boasts of a staggering output of 750 horsepower and 730 pound-feet of torque, a ridiculous number considering that the standard FR-S only has 200 ponies and 151 pound-feet of torque on tap.
But that’s how GReddy Racing rolls and if the massive performance upgrade isn’t enough to tickle your fancy, the program also has a Rocket Bunny Ver.2 aerodynamic kit to go with a new set of 19-inch Rays Gram Lights 57FXX wheels, Wilwood brakes, and a KW Competition three-way suspension setup with SPL Parts Arms.
The interior didn’t receive a whole lot of upgrades, at least unless you condor FIA racing seats and a Takata Racing Race 6 SFI harness as a "lot".

This is the most you’ll get of the FR-S’ interior.

Hard not to love the look of this Scion FR-S.
