• Which celebs will drive the Scion FR-S in the Toyota Pro?



    The Toyota Grand Prix weekend will be here before you know it – this famous race takes place in Long Beach, CA, and drivers will be hitting the track on April 20. However, one of the aspects of this race that we’re most excited about is the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race! This charitable race will take place that weekend in order to benefit children’s hospitals in the US, and celebs will be taking the wheel of none other than the 2013 Scion FR-S to get things moving! We can’t wait to see how they fare, and how the Orlando Scion FR-S eats up the track! 


    Orlando Scion FR-S will hit the track in 2013! 

    As you probably know by now, part of the reason the 2013 Scion FR-S in Orlando offers such an impressive performance is because of its rear-wheel drive component. This makes it a great option for the race, and it’s the first time that a rear-wheel drive has been the car of choice in over 20 years! This Orlando Scion was optimized for racing and endowed with a unique new look. You’ll find upgrades like: 

    • New suspension – a new MacPherson strut was added into the front, and double wishbone suspension will hold things down in the rear
    • A new exterior look – while the exterior is already incredible sporty, the new look is more fitting for the racing world
    • More horsepower – this new Scion in Orlando will now boast 210 horsepower, thanks to slight modifications. This means even more get-up-and-go!
    • More TRD (Toyota Racing Development) accessories! You’ll find 18” TRD wheels, as well as a new custom air intake, exhaust, brake kit, and shocks/springs

    Pretty impressive, right? We’ve also got details at our Orlando Toyota dealership regarding which celebs will be climbing into the driver’s seat of this optimized Scion FR-S. Expect to see the likes of: 

    • Wanda Sykes
    • Jeremy Sisto from Suburgatory
