Scion presented four unique custom FR-S models to audience members of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, where the FR-S earned a repeat win as the event’s “Hottest Sport Compact” due to its mass appeal and seemingly limitless customization.

SEMA, CustomScion was able to showcase this wide appeal by showing off FR-S models that ranged from a 750-horsepower drift machine by GReddy Performance, to an FR-S that relayed the dreams of famed DJ Steve Aoki.Supra, SEMA

While GReddy removed the stock 200-horsepower four-cylinder engine of their FR-S to shove a turbocharged 2JZ-GTE six-cylinder engine from the legendary Supra under the hood of their car, Aoki used his taste for music to throw a complete mix table and custom sound system into his FR-S.

SEMAIn between these two extremes were the carbon fiber filled 500-horsepower Bulletproof FR-S Concept One and the Urban GT Sport Coupe; the latter of which features all-new front and rear bodywork that gives the FR-S a decidedly European look.

Originally shown at this year’s Geneva Show, the FT-86 Open concept is abandoning its former white paintwork for a fresh coat of red. Toyota’s decision to continue to show and promote the FT-86 Open concept gives us hope that we may one day be able to drive a soft-top FR-S for ourselves.
