Toyota GT86 tuned for SEMA show

The Scion FR-S - aka Toyota GT86 - has been modified for the SEMA show in Las Vegas

The Toyota GT86 has been modified for the SEMA show. The headline car tuning show is taking place this week in Las Vegas, and the Scion FR-S (as the GT86 is badged in the US) has had a lot of tuner attention.

Four Scion FR-Ss are starring at SEMA. Most startling is the GReddy Performance x Scion Racing Drift FR-S (grey car, main image). As well as having one of the longest concept car names in existence, it also has 750bhp – that means a rather unsubtle 380 per cent increase on the standard car, which uses a 197bhp 2-litre flat-four engine. A power output higher than a Ferrari F12’s should be more than enough to cut the driven rear axle loose and live up to its ‘Racing Drift’ name, while there’s a ‘Rocket Bunny’ aero kit to make sure its looks possess similar levels of attitude.

Less potent, though still tuned heavily over standard, is the Bulletproof FR-S Concept One (white with black bonnet, right). It has a 500bhp turbocharged engine, track-tuned suspension, a handmade, widened body and a carbonfibre interior.

The Urban GT Sport Coupe (grey, right) gets a custom leather interior and a very clean exterior look, including de rigueur concept car equipment, wing mirror-replacing cameras. Finally the Steve Aoki x Scion FR-S (black, right) takes its name from the DJ who was apparently designed it, and as such boasts a mixing station, a Pioneer sound system, a fog machine and strobe lighting.
