Scion FR-S Speedster Impresses - Intel

Cartel Customs styled the car in a nod to Toyota’s rich racing heritage.

With the introduction of the svelte FR-S, Scion has the hard-hitting halo sports car it’s needed. We also see Scion as the best carmaker to introduce a Miata fighter, a zippy well-balanced drop top with a price tag as appealing as its bodylines. It seems we are not alone in this daydream. Joe Iacono of Iacono Design and Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs have hit the nail on the head by talking the already awe-inspiring FR-S and dropping the speedster look on it. This wicked one-off served as the official Grand Marshal vehicle at the Long Beach Grand Prix, escorting this year’s IZOD IndyCar Series race Grand Marshal Parnelli Jones.

Cartel Customs styled the car in a nod to Toyota’s rich racing heritage. The vehicle proudly bears the number 86 on its door panels and rear wing. It also features Toyota Racing’s iconic paint scheme. Exterior modifications include Cartel Traditional Signature Series Chop Top, modified front fenders and hood, custom-molded rear deck with hand-made sheet metal speed blisters, custom metal fabrication interior and exterior panels, APR Performance Custom 61-inch carbon-fiber wing, and custom formed and cut glass front windshield and side door glass. Interior modifications include custom-shaped metal door panels with carbon-fiber insets, carbon rear panel false wall, modified dash center drive gauge cluster and carbon switch panel, and red and white accented seats, dash and center console. Where do we order one?
