A Scion FR-S sports car has been recently crashed in the United States after its driver pressed the clutch instead of the brake pedal.
According to the FT86 Club forum, price the Scion FR-S in question has been doing about 20 mph or 32 km/h when its driver has lost control of the wheel and with the sports car going for a telephone pole, the guy driving it panicked and pressed the clutch instead of the brake pedal. The result was what you can see in the images posted below.
“I couldn’t believe how much the car just crumpled. I just looked at it and sat on the ground. I can’t even describe to you the feeling of seeing it like that. I just wanted to cry”, said the owner of the FR-S on the forum. “I want you guys to know that it truly feel awful about the whole thing. I am truly sorry for letting by fellow FR-S owners down and making a complete ass out of myself, I feel I’ve learned a valuable lesson, albeit a hard one.”
As a quick reminder, the Scion FR-S is powered by the Subaru borrowed 2.0 liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder Boxer engine, equipped with Toyota’s D-4S direct injection system. The unit is developing a total output of 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 151 lb-ft available at 6,600 rpm. According to the car manufacturer, the engine in the Scion FR-S can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission in standard or to a six-speed automatic as optional. The Scion FR-S is available for order in the United States starting from earlier this month, when the sports car has hit dealerships across the country.
