2012 Scion FR-S GT by Daniel Song

As a first time contestant to the Scion Tuner Challenge, Daniel Song felt that the FR-S was the perfect car to jump on. Almost immediately after accepting his participation in the Challenge, his mind went to work. He felt strongly that the Scion FR-S was built and designed as a performance vehicle to be enjoyed by both professional and amateur driving enthusiasts. It was then that the no-nonsense, function built, raw, aggressive, and sinister race bred theme was born. The project was named the “FR-S GT” and was the first clue to its inner racecar spirit being unleashed. It was important to Daniel that not only the car be ‘show ready’ for it’s debut at SEMA 2012, but that if the FR-S GT had to, it could put on a real show on the track where it would truly come alive
