A one of a kind Scion FR-S with its top dropped, named the Speedster and signed by the aftermarket specialists at Cartel Customs, has been officially presented to the public in California.
Originally hitting the web like a one-off concept car developed by Toyota with the possibility of becoming a production model, the Scion FR-S Speedster has turned out to be just a modified Scion FR-S. According to its creators, Cartel Customs, the Scion FR-S is coming with a bespoke interior, a rear diffuser integrated into a redesigned rear bumper, a massive spoiler, a short windscreen, a sporty rear deck lid and some tinted headlights, but this is all we’ve got on the drop-top version of the FR-S for now.
As a reminder, the Scion FR-S is the “American” name for the Toyota GT 86, which was officially presented to the public at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The sports car takes its power from a front mounted high-revving Subaru borrowed 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine, with the Toyota’s D-4S direct injection, producing a total output of 197 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb-ft of torque (205 Nm) at 6,600 rpm. Power is being sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission in standard or a six-speed automatic offered as an option.
