4 FR-S Builds You Had To See At SEMA 2016 #TENSEMA16

Yes, there were some Rocket Bunny cars

Nov 28, 2016

What makes the SEMA Show so special - aside from the guaranteed wild parties - is the fascinating creativity of builders. Just when you think you've seen everything done to a particular platform, SEMA builders always seem to up the ante year in and out. And of late, one of their go-to chassis has been the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ; ever since the twins were released, it's been a regular project car weapon of choice at the world's largest automotive aftermarket trade show. Here are some new "86" builds from SEMA 2016 you should know about.

THANh GIANG'S SCION FR-S

This FR-S brings wide to a new level. The team at Auto Tuned built this Scion FR-S RS 1.0 and fitted the first Vlene Japan widebody kit in the U.S. If you think this is just another build with flared fenders and wheels, you couldn't be further from the truth. It has a Sprintex supercharger to give it the boost the FR-S should've come with and a custom air set up for that aggressive stance.

RYAN TUERCK'S SCION FR-S

Of course this build has to be on this list. You'll easily let go of your hate for every Rocket Bunny car after you see Ryan Tuerck's Ferrari 458-powered FR-S. Think those fender louvers are for style and you'd be dead wrong. They're fully functional and were designed to send air into the intake ports. Hands down the craziest FR-S in all of SEMA.

CHRIS SOEHREN'S SCION FR-S

The moment we saw the BN Sports body kit at Tokyo Auto Salon, it was love at first sight. Chris Soehren was the first person in the U.S. to cop the kit and debut it at SEMA. This LS FR-S is no show queen either; it's built to go sideways.

KEN GUSHI'S SCION FR-S

Ken's 2JZ FR-S may have took a hard hit at Formula D Irwindale, but the guys at GReddy got it fixed in no time and refreshed it with the new Pandem body kit. A handful of cars had the same body kit, but in a red carpet, who wore it best scenario, GReddy outdoes the rest.
