Toyota's tuning division GRMN has done up a special version of the sports car we know as the Scion FR-S with a number of key enhancements. Shame it's only a limited edition exclusively for sale in Japan.
Scion FR-S News
After taking a boy racer approach for the first Release Series, Scion's second limited-edition FR-S is more mature.
At the Goodwood Festival of Speed this summer, Toyota will showcase six GT86s done up with throwback liveries reminiscent of famous racing cars from the company's considerable motorsport history.
Scion has bumped the price on the 2016 FR-S, but with a new standard touchscreen audio system and rear-view camera, the $405 increase doesn't sting too much.
Ever since Toyota and Subaru released the sports car alternatively known as the GT86, 86, BRZ and Scion FR-S a couple of years ago, rumors have circulated that even more exciting variants could be in store.

A brand like Scion is sort of a natural fit here at SEMA, what with the customizable schtick that it's trumpeted since being born in 2002. We've already seen some weird takes on the xB, but SEMA's magic wand has once done interesting things to the Steven J. Ewing
If you're familiar with Scion, you likely know all about the Release Series special editions, and back in April, the automaker showed us the first RS example of its FR-S coupe.

We have entered a drifting arms race. Last year, BMW smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest drift by hanging the tail out for 51.3 miles around a wet skid pad in an M5 at the BMW Performance Driving School in South Carolina. That beat the previous milestone of nearly seven miles. Now
We've seen (and frankly reported on) so many rumors of more powerful and performance-focused versions of the Subaru BRZ, Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S at this point that haven't materialized that, at this point, we're almost tired of them. Almost. But what we have here was enough to pique our jaded interests as only a carbon-bodied sports car
A couple of weeks ago, we told you about some suspension and appearance changes for the European-market Toyota GT86 – a car that's better known as the Scion FR-S (and Subaru BRZ) here in the United States. At the time, our US contacts at Steven J. Ewing
Okay Toyota, make up your mind. Figure it out. Quit playing games with our heart. Either build a bunch of variations of the excellent GT86 (also known as the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ) or don't. At this point, we're just tired of the back and forth. After no shortage of denials, an Australian w
