The Scion FR-S holds a special place in our hearts as part of a trinity of sports cars that have taken the world by storm.
In probably one of the most understated statements of the year, we’re not the only ones who love the FR-S . Apparently, world renowned DJ and producer Steve Aoki is himself quite a fan of the FR-S, so much so that a specially-modded version of the Japanese sports car is coming to the 2013 SEMA Auto Show packed with a host of features that can only come from the genius mind of Aoki.
The car itself is called the FR-S Steve Aoki Art Car, although what kind of interpretation you have for ’art’ is valid for interpretation. In this case, Aoki went balls to the wall on the interior, dressing up the FR-S’ cabin with a steady mix of high-grade audio components that essentially turns the FR-S’ interior into a veritable — and portable — club.
A host of sound system products from Pioneer were installed with multiple component speaker packages. Custom components from MV Designz were also designed and fabricated to use with all that explosion of audio technica. And just to keep the club vibe going, the FR-S’ interior somehow also found room for strobe lighting, a deck lid-mounted LCD display and a fog machine.
By the way, don’t sleep on the FR-S’ exterior package, because the combination of that five-piece aerodynamic kit and the custom graphics (the blue and orange trims on the black body look absolutely stunning) makes for a really attractive piece of eye candy.

It’s hard not too give your full attention to a Scion FR-S if it looks like this.
Notice the wheels, too. Those 19-inch Five AD R5:F Gun Metal wheels mean serious business.
The Steve Aoki FR-S may look like it has a standard lighting configuration, but it doesn’t. Instead, the package you stand to get includes LEDs, strobe lights, and Halo LEDs from Oracle Lighting.

Yes, those are enormous speakers.
There’s a mixer on the back of the seats. There really is.
