SEMA 2014: Part Five
Words by Tim Wong
This fifth and final part of this years SEMA Show coverage is here.
Scion had a line up of FRS modified is different manners along with a tuner competition.
This targa top FRS was a bold alteration to the car. Probably not the best car for this, but it brings a fresh look to the car.
The Scion Tuner Challenge was between three cars built by GT Channel, Super Street, and Speedhunters. GT Channel’s Scion FR-S on Volk ZE40s
The Super Street FRS had Rocket Bunny x GReddy Version 1 front fenders fused with TRD Release Series 1.0 aero, Version 2 rear fenders, on a set of FLOSS EDITION BBS LM wheels.
The car reflected much of the Southern California import car style with a cleanly tucked engine bay featuring the 2.0L Boxer engine and Borla Induction 45mm DCOE ITBs.
Speedhunters had a retro racing livery on a set of Rotiform BLQ wheels. Out of the three, it was no surprise to me that this is the one that won the competition. The details that make up the car was what really set it apart from the other two.
