So I lied, there is one last car I want to show you guys that I shot at Tokyo Auto Salon. This is the crazy Bee*R “FR-S”. The reason I use quotation marks is because a lot of people don’t know that this car started it’s life actually as a Subaru BRZ, not a Toyota 86. I’m not sure why they rebadged it, but they’re both the same car anyways.
Here are some photos from the D1GP exhibition from Tokyo Auto Salon back in January! Excuse the quality and the heads of people, it was extremely crowded and hard to get a good spot.
Scion unveiled its Scion Racing/GReddy FR-S race car during a press conference at the 2012 North American International Auto Show. The FR-S will be competing in the 2012 Formula DRIFT series with veteran driver Ken Gushi behind the wheel.
The 600-horsepower FR-S race car is the result of a collaboration between Scion Racing and GReddy, a performance-products company that has been involved with Toyota and racing for over twenty years.
The race car is inspired by the 2013 Scion FR-S, a compact rear-wheel-drive sports car that will go on sale in the spring of 2012. The high-performance coupe is the fifth model to join the Scion family.
