Scion ready to drop the boom at SEMA with sick FR-S Tuner Challenge models
Before the FR-S sports car burst into the auto scene in late 2011, Scion didn’t have a whole lot of street cred when it came to the aftermarket world. Sure, the iQ has been the subject of some projects in the past, but it didn’t really capture the imagination of a lot of people, particularly because the iQ is still a compact hatchback that offered little in the way of performance.
But with the FR-S, Scion has definitely turned the tables on the industry, earning itself the kind of swag befitting of the quarterback at a high school party.
Well, the aftermarket party that is the 2012 SEMA Auto Show will be the site of the FR-S Tuner Challenge and the Toyota-owned brand is ready to drop three custom-built FR-S models, at least based on the teasers that have just been released, that will make you drop your pants on the floor.
Not much was given in the way of details regarding the three custom-built FRS models, except that all three look about as stunning as any tuned FRS models we’ve ever seen.
If you remember, we showed you a teaser video of the challenge that included the identities of the three tuners who are part of the competition. We don’t know who owns what project, but if we could just split the award three ways to all three fellas, we wouldn’t have any problems doing so.
Be that as it may, there will be one winner and Scion will announce who takes home the title at the 2012 SEMA Auto Show.
