We saw the Scion FR-S launch yesterday, and following the initial launch, Scion released some serious footage of the new sports coupe concept.
The first video is eight and a half minutes worth of extensive exterior touring. Run your eyes over the bulging, candy-red curves, 20-inch wheels, 18-inch carbon ceramic rotors, sharp head and tail lights, thinned out side mirrors and big, ol' rear diffuser. Decide what you like and what you hope Toyota/Scion drop on the design-room floor before launching the production version; it's the best look you're going to get of the concept without buying a plane ticket to Laguardia.
On the other hand, if you're pressed for time, skip to the second video, which condenses that run-through into a crisp, 47-second teaser. You'll get the main points of the presentation without committing your entire cigarette break to it.
Unfortunately, we don't get treated to a trip inside the cabin of the FR-S, but given its dark glass and the lack of any photos/video, it appears that the interior isn't quite ready for debut.
If you missed it earlier this week, the Scion FR-S is a preview of the North American version of the Toyota FT-86. The rear wheels are powered by a front-mounted, Subaru-sourced 2.0-liter Boxer four assisted by Toyota's DS-4 injection system. That engine will work with either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions.
The FR-S concept is on display at the New York Auto Show, which is open to the public between April 22 and May 1.
