2013 Scion FR-S Long Beach Grand Prix Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race Car @ Chicago Auto Show

http://www.autobytel.com/scion/fr-s/2013/ At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, Scion unveiled the new line of FR-S race cars for the upcoming Long Beach Grand Prix Toyota Pro/Celebrity Event. Scion is very excited to have the new FR-S be the official Toyota Pro/Celebrity car. This will mark the first time in over 20 years that a RWD car has been chosen. It was a natural choice to move from the Scion tC to the FR-S which was designed to be an affordable sports car from the beginning. Craig Taguchi gives Autobytel a closer look at what goes into making a car race ready. Starting with a stock 2013 Scion FR-S, a handful of modifications have been performed; mostly in the name of safety. There are a few TRD parts thrown into the mix for added excitement. But for the most part, the car remains relatively stock. Staring up front, the headlights and fog lights have been removed and replaced with delete (fake) units. These cars will be racing and should there be any incidents on the track, a bunch of plastic and glass shards will not be left on the track. The rims are TRD 18-inch cast aluminum units with a matte black finish that compliments the red paint scheme on the car. You will also notice the longer safety stud holding the wheel to the hub. The wheels are wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 tires that provide more grip for the race track. Out back there are a few more TRD accessories. The genuine TRD spoiler will be available at your local dealership soon. The TRD dual Exhaust system features contoured tips that blend in with the bumper. On the inside, the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Scion FR-S Race Car has a window net to keep the drive safe from road debris. The 5-point harness seat belts add another layer of safety while also keeping the driver planted when pulling lateral G's. There is a battery kill switch and full fire safety suppression system. Rounding out the interior safety modifications is the full roll cage.

TRD Griffon 86: Inspiration - Scion TRD FR-S Project Car [Part 1]
The upcoming Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 was inspired by our own Scion TRD FR-S project car, which in turn was influenced by the Griffon Toyota 86 built by TRD's Japanese division. In the first part of our three part series detailing the Scion TRD FR-S project car, we went overseas to hear about the philosophy of the Griffon 86 from the car's chief engineer, then explained some of the changes we made to that concept for the American market.

Founded in 2002, Scion was introduced at the New York Auto Show to appeal to Generation Y consumers. The first Scion models, the xA hatchback and xB wagon, went on sale in California in 2003, followed by a sports coupe, the tC, and a nationwide U.S. launch in 2004. A successor to the xA, the xD, premiered in 2008, and the Scion marque expanded to Canada in 2010. Scion currently has five models: the tC, xB, iQ, xD, and the FR-S. The Scion name, meaning the descendant of a family or heir, refers both to the brand's cars and their owners.
