In an age where auto manufacturers have shifted focus away from affordable performance cars, new rarities that fit that mold tend to sell like hotcakes and the demand is always high. These models tend to have their own hype surrounding them: it can be due to key performance aspects that make them special in comparison to other manufacturers, or often times its due to a large aftermarket response for modifying them.
There’s no question that the Scion FR-S is SEMA’s go-to car for 2012. Each year, the latest and hottest car seems to set the stage for builders and manufacturers to showcase their best. But, with several-dozen FR-Ss present at the show this year, it takes a bit of unique thinking to build a stand-out car. Our friends at Rotiform teamed up with Air Lift, Magnaflow, Nitto, Vortech, and a slew of other sponsors to build what we think is one of the top FR-Ss of SEMA.
When Scion introduced the first generation of xBs, they did something that would later shape how many automotive companies viewed the aftermarket industry and enthusiasts. Toyota created the Scion brand to provide automotive artists with a blank slate. Like a block of clay, the Scion xB was a simple boxy design that just begged to be altered by fabricators and tuners alike.
