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?
At the Tokyo Auto Salon this year we saw a wide range of Toyota 86 or Scion FR-S models from the Japanese car manufacturer.

You didn’t read it wrong, this is the new ‘Gundam Style‘ kit for the upcoming 2013 Toyota Auris by Modellista. While it may be easily confused with the hit viral song ‘Gangnam Style’ by South Korean rapper PSY, this title actually relates to the Japanese animated television series with giant robots. Although this car is not a giant in itself, the large Japanese in-house tuning company Modellista has taken this car under their wing for some tasty modifications.
Here is a unique Toyota MR2 that has been transformed into a Lamborghini Murcielago replica. In the past we have seen this car try to replicate models such as the Ferrari 460 Modeno Spider and Ferrari F430 Spider, however a larger Lamborghini proved to be much more difficult. This was a project from Bulgaria and is based on a second generation 1992 Toyota MR-2.
