Scion TRD FR-S Project Vehicle

In 2014, we had the opportunity to drive and capture the first ever Scion FR-S RS1 Turbo, well kind of. In actuality, it was a project vehicle that resembled the unreleased Scion FR-S RS1. In fact, the project vehicle inspired the current RS1. The work was done in partnership with Advanced Design Fabrication (ADF), Scion Racing, TRD, Toyota Technocraft, KMA Industries, GReddy, Techno Square, and Evasive Motorsports. Subtle differences sets the US Spec vs. the TRD Project Vehicle apart, the aero package are all JDM Spec. The addition of fender aero fins and the deletion of “TRD” from the rear bumper cover are notable differences.

The project vehicle also gets a bump from the 200HP to 400HP with the help of an upgraded Greddy Turbo Kit, JE Pistons, Carrillo Rods, with a MOTEC engine management. The suspension is an adjustable coil-over system also from TRD.

ADF did a great job in the interior with an 8-point roll cage, fuel cell, TRD gauges, and custom door panels. Seriously, you can’t touch this FR-S.

Let’s look at the details up close.

sema-2016-6064If you are an automotive enthusiast, then you know the mecca of car events, SEMA. We’ve covered it through the years and since the recession, it has gotten bigger and bigger every year. This year SEMA celebrates it’s 50th year and without a doubt, it’s also a reunion of current and past partners. It’s a week where you can gorge on 50 dollar buffet dinners and not feel too guilty because you’re walking an average of 10 miles a day. With over 3000 vehicles, it’s easy to miss a good amount. therefore. you walk though the halls and snap whatever catches your attention.

For example, the field-savaged, body-dropped, rotary-powered, 510 built by Twisted Images, sitting low on AirLift suspension and classic BBS wheels.sema-2016-6236
