Scion FR S Speedster 2012 Review

The Scion FR S Speedster 2012 made its debut during the 38th annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, an open-air speedster variant of the Scion FR S. The Scion FR S Speedster 2012 is the result of the collaboration between Cartel Customs and Iacono Design, and boasts with Toyota racing heritage a mile away mainly due to its color scheme and the number "86" present on both the exterior and the interior of the car.

The Scion FR S Speedster 2012 sports a flat 2.0 liter boxer engine under its hood, coupled with a six speed transmission. The engine is able to develop 200 horsepower @ 7,000 RPM and a maximum torque of 151 lb-ft. The Scion FR S Speedster 2012 also sports a Greddy SP Elite Exhaust System and an ACT Clutch.

The Scion FR S Speedster 2012 also packs a set of KW suspension system featuring independent rebound and compression adjustability, 13-inch brake disks coupled with Wilwood SUPERLITE 6-piston radial mount calipers and Wilwood Smart Pads.

In terms of rims and tires the Scion FR S Speedster 2012 packs a couple of 18 x 8.0 Forge Line center lock wheels sporting 225/40/18 TOYO Proxes R888 tires, whilst at the rear-end the Scion FR S Speedster 2012 comes with a pair of 18 x 9.5 Forge Line center lock rims mated with 245/40/18 TOYO Proxes R888 tires.

The exterior of the car looks pretty much as you would've imagined a Scion FR S to look like without a roof, although an APR Performance Custom 61"carbon fiber spoiler wing has been fitted on the trunk lid for improved downforce, and the front fenders and hood have been also modified by Cartel. Carbon fiber is present on the interior as well, the dash has been heavily modified, a couple of racing seats have replaced the standard ones and there's obviously some scaffolding present as well.

Unfortunately the Scion FR S Speedster 2012 will not participate in the Grand Prix, and whether or not a topless Scion FR S is intended to hit mass production in the near future is yet unknown. The thing looks quite interesting to be honest, mainly because it manages to keep a sporty look whilst delivering a joyful feel at the same time. The Scion FR S Speedster 2012 looks like a happy car and I'd personally love to see a Scion FR S Speedster variant going into mass production in the future.
