A Scion FR-S, the American brother of the Toyota GT-86, has recently been caught on camera in California.
After the Scion FR-S has made a surprise appearance at an US automotive event not too long ago, and the model has also been spotted drifting by the Formula Drift driver Ken Gushi, the Japanese sports car is once again in everyone’s center of attention after the vehicle has been filmed again, at the same Cars and Coffee meet, in Irvine, California. This isn’t actually the first time when the Scion FR-S has been filmed at the Cars and Coffee event in the US, but this latest video find is clearly showing us the exterior design of the model.
The Scion FR-S is the “American” name for the Toyota GT-86 which was recently presented to the public at the Los Angeles Auto Show and at Tokyo Motor Show. The sports car is powered by a front mounted high-revving 2.0 liter four-cylinder Subaru “borrowed” boxer engine with the company’s D-4S direct injection technology, mated to a manual transmission which is sending power to the rear wheels. The engine in the new Toyota GT 86 is developing a total output of 197 horsepower at 7.000 rpm and has a peak torque of 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) available at 6.600 rpm.
