Scion FR-S T1 by Cartel Customs

A brand like Scion is sort of a natural fit here at SEMA, what with the customizable schtick that it’s trumpeted since being born in 2002. We’ve already seen some weird takes on the xB, but SEMA’s magic wand has once done interesting things to the FR-S, seen here in a quartet of concepts.

Something that kind of piques our interest is this roofless, let-the-sun-in FR-S, but not in a way that we’ve seen before. Tuner Jeremy Lookofsky of Cartel Customs put the two-tone, topless FR-S together, and his creation also features an all-metal wide body with an integrated rear spoiler. It’s decked out in a unique Azzuro California Blue (looks pretty beachy to us) and includes upgrades like a louvered rear window, 19-inch wheels, a center-mounted exhaust, big ol’ turbo kit, KW coilover suspension, upgraded brakes, and a super-powerful audio system.

Also featured in FR-S land is the 10th annual Scion Tuner Challenge, in which three tuners received $ 15,000 to modify the coupe, taking cues from the Release Series 1.0 that debuted earlier this year. The three cars were done up by Super Street magazine, GT Channel, and Speedhunters. A panel of judges will look at the customs and a $ 10,000 grand prize will be given to the winners.

Have a look at the three custom Tuner Challenge creations in the gallery below, and don’t miss that targa special in its own gallery, up top.
