Aftermarket tuners are going above and beyond with whatever you want to call it, the Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 or Subaru BRZ. That is the only problem with this sports car, we’re not sure what manufacturer to classify it under as both Toyota and Subaru have worked on it together. Identical cars from two different companies are rare these days, however it does make the tuning industry stronger since they can all form as one. We’re going to make it simple and call this car the FRZ86 from now on, see what we did there?
The Canadian tuners at SR Auto Group have released a new version of the Scion iQ that looks much better than their previous Project Pryzm. It features a new Five Axix body kit consisting of a front lip spoiler, custom side skirts, new rear valence and rear spoiler. Addition modifications include a set of lowering springs to go along with the 18-inch Sparco Assetto Gara rims wrapped in high performance tires. Performance tuning was left out, but at least Scion iQ owners now have some choices when it comes to styling.
Check out all the modified Scion FR-S cars we have gathered from the Tuner Challenge at SEMA this year. You will see the extreme body kits to performance upgrades and everything in between. If you have already ordered a FR-S or are looking for future upgrades, then this is the gallery for you. Three of these were entered in the Tuner Challenge where Scion gave $10,000 to the guys to customize their Scion and compete for a $15,000 prize.
Scion is ready to rock the SEMA show with several new Scion FR-S models that were part of their Tuner Challenge competition. They have teamed up with Subaru and their BRZ version of the car to put together some interesting modifications. These are just the teasers we have for now, since the Japanese automaker will not reveal any information about the projects until the SEMA curtains drop. Stay tuned for some customized Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ models to sweep across the country.
The guys at Speedhunters teamed up the KW suspension experts to create this 86X drift car based on the Toyota GT-86. (Also know as the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S depending on where you live) It recently participated in the Gatebil drift competition in Norway and plans to tour Europe while being driven by Fredric Aasbø. To get this car competition ready, the guys had to completely swap out the factory engine with a larger 2JZ-GTE sourced from a Toyota Supra.
