Known mostly for their works on promulgating the hip-hop, break dancing, and graffiti scenes in San Francisco, Fatlace has evolved into acompany that’s also dug in deep in the aftermarket auto industry. At SEMA , they took a project Scion FR-S that they’ve been working on for quite some time, back when it was completely bone stock, and turned it into a stunning sports car with some of the zaniest aftermarket work.
The objective for Fatlace was to build a car that would showcase the right combination of aftermarket offerings into one exciting sports car. The first order of business, apart from disassembling the FR-S, was to give it a new aero kit, which they did by way of Rocket Bunny. With the new Rocket Bunny kit, Fatlace managed to channel the FR-S’ aggressiveness and added bolt-on fenders, a redesigned front and rear bumper, and a new rear diffuser. Lightwerkz LED headlights were also part of the package, as were the new set of Limited TE37SL wheels in gunmetal grey wrapped in Toyo Proxes RS1 tires and complemented by Brembo Gran Turismo front and rear brakes.
Inside, Fatlace kept the modifications at a minimum, opting only to install a pair of their Illest x Bride Zieg III Type R carbon fiber - and FIA-approved - bucket seats. These seats come with Bride’s Low Max seating position, enhancing the view of the road for the driver. Takata Racing’s new harness system, in black with Takata Green accents, was also installed, to keep the driver in their seats when things get a little hairy.
It’s no secret that the FR-S isn’t exactly a powerhouse on wheels. So to give the car an added roar, Fatlace installed Vortex’s new bolt-on supercharger system to go with a Koyo radiator to help keep the engine’s mechanics cool. A Cusco power brace was also installed, as well as a new stainless steel dual exhaust system from Greddy that gave the FR-S the kind of deep growl it deserves.
