The monstrous symphony that screams out of the engine bay as the engine begins to climb up to redline, sends chills through your body as you are pressed back into your seat during acceleration, has always played a key role in the performance car experience. Continue reading »
The Scion FR-S Concept was recently revealed for the first time and there’s a lot to be excited about!
The Scion FR-S concept was recently revealed at the New York Auto Show to the delight of many anxious “Toyobaru” fans around the world. The FR-S signifies a giant leap forward in the collaboration between Toyota and Subaru, bringing them one step closer to releasing their joint-venture sports car. With that said, the FR-S is still in concept form so what we see before us today will slightly differ from the production version that will show up on car lots in 2012.
Still, our sneak peak is a firm indication of just how brilliant the final version will be. The FR-S looks absolutely stunning with its unique blend of futuristic design mixed with old school form. The old school aspect comes into play from design cues taken from the Toyota 2000GT. The low and long hood, short rear, and bulging wheel arches brings some 60’s styling into 2012.
The concept also features a menacing front-end and overall sleek design that’s almost reminiscent of the Lexus LFA. To think, not long ago there was a lot of speculation that if released under Scion the styling would be watered down in a sense, but the pictures below certainly tell a different story.
So, it looks great, but we’re talking about a performance car here so let’s get to the meaningful information.
