Toyota Scion FR-S race car

Scion revealed the name of the model that will compete in the 2013 Toyota Pro / Celebrity race scheduled on April 20th. To be more precise, we are talking about the Scion FR-S, which has already been confirmed. The model was revealed at the 2013 edition of the Chicago Motor Show and it marks the first time in 27 years that a rear-wheel drive sports car will serve as the designated race car. Actually, scion vehicles have been driven in the Pro / Celebrity race vehicles since 2005. The new Scion FR-S cars will be capable of generating 210 horsepower and will be equipped with performance enhancements that will include a rage of Toyota Racing Development products. Here we have to mention the stainless-steel exhaust, coil-over shocks and springs, big brake kit with Hawk Performance brake pads, performance air intake and 18-inch wheels to transfer the output to the road. The list continues with specially made equipment that includes a Centerforce single disc racing clutch, a rear double wishbone suspension and front MacPherson struts. The Scion FR-S was revealed for the first time in 2012 and has earned significant accolades including being named Best of 2013 by Cars.com.

The Japanese manufacturer has donated more than $2 million to the Racing for kids organization since 1991 on behalf of the Pro / Celebrity race and its participants.

The new model receives power from a 4-cylinder, boxer type 16-valve DOHC 2.0-liter engine capable of generating 210 horsepower. It uses a 6-speed manual transmission with Redline MTL synthetic transmission fluid with differential limited-slip differential and clutch Centerforce single-disc racing clutch. When it comes to additional features, we have to mention the safety full roll cage, onboard fire system, window net and 5-point seatbelts. These are all the official information available so far, but do not go very far as more are on their way.
