The drop-top Scion FR-S first spotted in a California drift event turned out to be a custom tuning job by Joe Iacono of Iacono Design and Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs, designed to celebrate Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. So it’s not previewing any upcoming roadster version of the car. It’s just a well-executed show car.

To create this car Cartel Customs chopped the top of a Scion FR-S coupe, modified front fenders and hood, custom-molded rear deck with hand-made sheet metal speed blisters, custom metal fabrication interior and exterior panels, APR Performance Custom 61” carbon fiber wing, and custom formed and cut glass front windshield and side door glass. So a lot of work went into this.

For the interior, they ditched the stock dashboard and fitted custom-shaped metal door panels with carbon fiber insets, carbon rear panel false wall, modified dash center drive gauge cluster and carbon switch panel, and red and white accented seats, dash and center console.

No performance modifications have been made to the car. It gets the same 2.0 liter boxer engine as the standard FR-S with 200hp connected to a six-speed manual gearbox.
