When a carmaker builds a new car, they put it through the paces at their own test track. When they build a sporty car, they take it to a racetrack. When they build a real sports car though, there is only one place to test it out: The Nurburgring.
Spy photographers caught this FR-S prototype testing at the Nurburgring with the full race car workup complete with what looks like a painted carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber trunk, carbon fiber roof and a gigantic spoiler. This could be a test car for future TRD performance parts, or it could be a test car for the future FR-S Supra that Toyota will probably develop with a BMW-sourced engine.
The car is probably built by Gazoo racing, the Toyota Skunkworks department that built the custom FR-S with Supra tail lights, so whether it’s the FR-S Supra or a Turbo FR-S motor, it’s definitely got something exciting under the hood.
Of course, this is all a guessing game until Scion comes out and tell us what the mystery FR-S really is, so what do you think? Spotted any details about the car that everyone else missed? Let us know in the comments.
