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.

2013 Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTEC Diesel Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/e-class/2013/ The amount of diesel powered luxury cars on the road are few. BMW has the 3-Series Diesel and Audi has the A3 TDI but these are both a smaller class of car. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTEC is really one of the only choices when it comes to a large luxury diesel car. The E-Class comes in a couple of different body styles like the: Sedan, Coupe, Cabriolet, and a Wagon. There are also numerous engine options encompassing everything from a smaller displacement V-6 all the way up to a large displacement high performance V-8 with a Hybrid and Diesel option thrown into the mix as well. The price range on the 2013 Merceedes-Benz E-Class also runs the gamut but the BlueTEC is only $1200 more than the base V-6 model at $52,200 making it a great buy. Diesel engines and the Mercedes brand have a long history together. In fact it's not uncommon to see decades old diesel powered cars built by Mercedes still driving around. Now-a-days diesel is back in a big way and brands like Audi and Volkswagen are pushing those engines on a bunch of models. The exterior of the 2013 Mercedes E-Class has the high-end executive look. The styling is not over the top like other luxury vehicles but it does give off the luxury vibe. The E-Class looks good without trying too hard. Up front the daytime LED running lights are now the industry standard, the headlights look great, the front bumper has a bit of aggressiveness, and the big star emblem gives proper homage to the cars of yesteryear. Moving to the side, the E-Class has sharp angular lines and a bold shoulder line down the side. Out back the E-Class has nice looking LED tail lamps and a great dual Exhaust. Under the hood of the 2013 Mercedes E350 BlueTEC is a turbocharged 3.0 liter diesel V-6 that makes 210 horsepower and a whopping 400 lb-ft. of torque. This large amount of torque helps the E350 get going of the line. Fuel economy figures are 22 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway but owners say the actual figures are higher. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz E350 handles quite well. The steering is responsive and the ride is comfortable. The price as mentioned before is over $52k for this E350 BlueTEC. For that money though you get comfortable heated leather seats, steering wheel mounted controls, a nice Navigation system, rear privacy curtain, the COMMAND infotainment system, and a ton of safety features. With this 2013 Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTEC you are not only getting luxury but you are getting great fuel economy. If you want a full or mid-sized luxury sedan with diesel, you really only have a few options. The E350 BlueTEC is classy, powerful, and fuel efficient.

86FEST Import Car Show Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota AE-86 @ Fontana Auto Club Speedway
http://www.autobytel.com/scion/fr-s/2013/?id=32972 Autobytel's own FR-S fanatic T.J. Keon was recently invited out to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA for the first ever 86FEST, a gathering and celebration of all things Toyobaru and pays homage to the original AE-86 with everything from a car show to on track activities. We were fortunate enough to catch up with the man who loves little red Hachis more than anyone else, Antonio Alvendia, from Cipher Garage and MotorMavens.com and is responsible for 86FEST. Scion Racing driver Ken Gushi was also on hand to talk about drifting as well as daily driving an FR-S after signing a few autographs and smoking a few sets of tires. Finally we were able to catch up with Speedhunter Larry Chen where the Drift Photo aficionado shared a story of a very special Hachi Roku with only 48 original kilometers that had been kept in a basement for the past 25 years he found on a recent trip to Belgium.

http://www.autobytel.com/subaru/brz/2013/ The 2013 Subaru BRZ was voted Compact Car of the Year by Autobytel's Editorial Team. Editor-in-Chief Michelle Naranjo was at the Chicago Auto Show to present the award to Dominick Infante from Subaru. When asked about how the BRZ has been received, Dominick tells us "We can only really say it has been a home run. We have been incredibly pleased with how the BRZ has been received by the media, owners, and buyers. Sales have been tremendous and the car is basically sold out. Hopefully we can get a few more cars imported this year. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is exactly what we wanted it to be: a great handling, affordable, and fun to drive sports car."

2014 / 2015 Scion FR-S (AKA Subaru BRZ & Toyota 86) Review and Road Test - DETAILED
Check out more videos: http://vid.io/xqoB Upcoming reviews: http://vid.io/xqxl Best cars in 2014: http://vid.io/xqxe The Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 are all essentially the same car and together they are probably one of the most misunderstood sports cars sold in America. Misunderstood you ask? Why yes. Many assume that the sexy coupé is rocket ship fast. It's not. Many assume the svelte 2-door grips the road like it has claws. It doesn't. Many have heard rumours that it wears Toyota Prius tires. It kinda-sorta does. What most people don't know however is that these traits combine to create one of the purest, most enjoyable and certainly most affordable rear wheel drive sports cars in America. In the same tradition as a classic lightweight English sports car, the 2+2 Scion FR-S' raison d'être isn't to eat Ford Mustangs for breakfast, it's mission is to be the best balanced track car. And it succeeds. The 200HP and 151 lb-ft of torque are unquestionably low for our modern era where even a Camry cranks out more power, but the power is perfectly balanced to the car's weight AND grip. The low-rolling resistance tires allow the FR-S to get just the right amount of tail-happy on a small track and the manual transmission is perfectly suited to an autocross style event. Sure, putting the FR-S on a larger track like Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca reveals the FR-S is out-gunned by plenty of rivals, but doing so also misses the point. I like to think of the Scion/Toyota/Subaru as baby's first track car, the kind of car you can use to hone your driving skills before moving up to a more-powerful, faster and deadlier vehicle. The key to loving this low-slung 2+2 is to understand what it is, and most importantly: what it isn't.





2013 Scion FR-S Pro-Celebrity Race Car, Shakedown and Media Preview
While this was a track event at Streets of Willow Springs Raceway, we did drive with very safe open track rules and this was not a race not time attack, but more a sampling with respect and safety for the precious cars that was due to make an appearance at 2013 Long Beach GP. So please respect the mild driving as it was not a full on time attack testing.





Toyota GT 86 2012 - acceleration 0-225 km/h + Vmax test
Nice acceleration till 210 km/h, then most of the dynamics is spoiled by 6th gear. But if you find a proper hill... :-) More at http://www.Autoforum.cz/bleskovky/vyzkouseli-jsme-toyotu-gt-86-dokaze-se-ro zjet-az-na-250-km-h-video/
