Cartel Customs 2013 Scion FR-S Speedster

Toyota and Subaru designed the Scion FR-S with modification in mind--it's the tuner's version of the car, even more so than the Subaru BRZ--but we're not sure they quite expected what they're getting so quickly. Already we've seen a V-8-powered GT 86 and now there's this Cartel Speedster version of the FR-S.

Designed and built by Cartel Customs, lead by Jeremy Lookofsky, the Cartel Speedster takes the top clean off the FR-S, leaving in its place a low windshield, sloped side windows, and a double-bubble deck lid in classic speedster style. As the photos, via Serious Wheels, show, it's a dramatic restyling of the brand-new sports coupe.

The custom FR-S is also outfitted with a wide range of other mods, including: an upgraded clutch, exhaust, and suspension; Wilwood brakes; larger 18x8-inch front and 18x9.5-inch rear wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes R888 tires; custom fenders and hood; a 61-inch carbon fiber wing; custom paint; and a fully custom interior.

The Cartel Speedster FR-S will debut at the 2012 Toyota Long Beach Grand Prix.
