With the unveiling of its FR-S Concept back at the 2011 New York Auto Show, Scion showed us that even models intended to be affordable can look quite exotic. Despite still being a concept, most of the FR-S show car’s lines are expected to transfer faithfully to the production 2012 Scion FR-S, possibly Toyota Celica in other markets, including its aggressive front end and sweeping fenders.

This latest video features Scion racing driver Ken Gushi, who is currently piloting a tC coupe in the Formula Drift series. He talks about the new FR-S and its relation to the original Toyota AE86 drift legend.
