Here’s something you probably didn’t know: this Greddy Racing-prepared Scion FR-S that will suit up at the 2013 Formula Drift Pro Championships has been under Scion’s development covers since before the production FR-S was unveiled to the public.

That’s a pretty interesting history for a racecar that certainly has the racing pedigree down to a hilt. It comes with a GReddy X Rocket Bunny body kit, a KW Competition three-way suspension setup and a set of 17- and 18-inch Rays Gram Lights 57DR wheels wrapped in Hankook RS-3 tires.

To prepare it for the intense competition of the Formula Drift Pro Championship, GReddy Racing prepared this FR-S to be a bona fide world beater. It features a 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder engine that’s been outfitted with a GReddy turbocharger, thus increasing the output to a staggering 650 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque, which is an increase of 450 horsepower and 399 pound-feet of torque over a stock FR-S. This GReddy-tuned engine mates to a G-Force GSR four-speed transmission and the complete package is enough to rocket this FR-S to 60 mph in just 2.83 seconds and through a quarter-mile in just 10.4 seconds.

With an entire year of testing and development under the hood of this FR-S, there’s no doubt that GReddy Racing and driver Ken Gushi are parepared to take the Formula Drift Pro Championship by storm.

Scion FR-S

2013 - 2015 Scion FR-S High Resolution Exterior
- image 451566

This isn’t the Scion of the early 2000s, fellas. The FR-S is a bona fide sports car, far removed from the cute little brand that Scion has come to be known as.

Judging by its appearance, the FR-S looks the part of a sports coupe that proudly displays its swooping lines and aggressive curves akin to its twin sisters, the Toyota GT 86 and the Subaru BRZ.

As far as power goes, the FR-S comes with a 2.0-liter boxer-four engine that produces 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque and mates to a six-speed manual transmission.
