Scion is getting ready for the 2012 SEMA Motor Show in Las Vegas with a supercharged version of the FR-S, named the NuR Concept.
According to the car manufacturer, the Scion FR-S NuR Concept has been created by ChargeSpeed and by Five Axis, who developed the rear trunk wing. Scion says that the sports car is getting a Vortech Supercharger onto the 2.0 liter boxer engine under the hood and other features include the high-flow catalytic converter, the bespoke exhaust system and the 19-inch wheels with a single locking bolt, giving the model a racy look. Additional details on the sports car are limited for the moment.
As a quick reminder, the Scion FR-S is strongly “related” to the Toyota GT 86 and the Subaru BRZ and the model is equipped with the 2.0 liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated Boxer engine borrowed from Subaru and fitted with the D-4S direct injection system developed by Toyota. The sports car’s engine is developing a total output of 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm, with a peak torque of 151 lb-ft at 6,000 rpm. The unit can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission in standard or a six-speed automatic available as an option.
