Agression In Motion: TRA Kyoto FR-S

Love that soundtrack!


True Grit: Mechanics Before Aesthetics

Brian Egan’s mantra seems to be based around this mentality – and his car certainly shows it. Having taken 9 trophies already in various events this year, to call it ‘spartan’ would be quite fitting.

Holy Trinity: Rocket Bunny. TRA Kyoto. FR-S.

Kei Miura of TRA Kyoto may have already fitted his now unmistakable ‘Rocket Bunny’ kit to Fredric Aasbo’s drift-maniac 2JZ Toyota 86 as well as BeeR’s Imai-san’s blue BRZ, but now his very own (full imported) Scion FR-S is complete.

The Toyota 86 is quite the handsome car from the factory, but with the addition of the ultra sculpted aero, it brings those subtle hints of agression into a fully fledged shouting match for attention.

Feast your eyes on it over at SPEEDHUNTERS.
