Toyota Ccion FR-S: Specs, Pictures, Price and Dimension




Toyota Ccion FR-S

Toyota’s version of the FT-86 sports car project is a Scion—and based on the FR-S Concept car they showed at the New York Auto Show today, it’s going to be inducing style-related whiplash among passers-by quite frequently.

The car is being positioned as the spiritual descendant of the AE-86, with an emphasis on well-balanced performance rather than battleship-worthy power outputs.

FR-S, which stands for “front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sport,” (or “friggin’ really sweet,” according to Jack Hollis, Scion’s vice president) is the automaker’s homage to the infamous AE-86 Corolla – a car that was highly praised for its lightweight body and superb balance without having to churn out a ton of power. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter Boxer flat-four mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The FT-S rides on sharp 20-inch wheels, hiding an absolutely monstrous set of 18-inch carbon ceramic brake rotors that are fixed to the wheels like a motorcycle.
