The Rocket Bunny 2 kit for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ has been revealed at SEMA 2013. The first Rocket Bunny body kit has become one of the most popular body kits for the FR-S and BRZ, and the Rocket Bunny 2 kit takes that same attractive look to an even more aggressive level.
The Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ Rocket Bunny 2 body kit, designed by Kei Muira, is a much more extreme body kit than the original Rocket Bunny FR-S and BRZ kit. The Rocket Bunny 2 front bumper is a full front clip rather than just a spoiler add-on and has a much larger opening to allow more air into an intercooler for a supercharger or turbo kit along with a carbon fiber front splitter. The rear of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S Rocket Bunny 2 kit has a ducktail spoiler like most of the Rocket Bunny body kits.
The Rocket Bunny 2 kit isn’t a simple bolt on body kit. Robert Kochis of Stay Crushing gave this advice based on his experience fitting the Rocket Bunny 2 body kit to his company’s orange FR-S:
“Going from version one to version two was not the easiest thing to do. Be prepared for exposed precious drill holes on the quarter panel and rear bumper as well as more cutting required. Also the inner front bumper needed to be cut to fit the flares and allow clearance for turning radius,” Kochis told Super Street. “Also the front fender has a 1-1.5 inch greater radius than before. In order to properly sit 18-19-inch wheels, a decent sized tire and coilover modifications are needed. I opted for a 4-inch 11k swift spring and didn’t cut the apron and used my existing 17s, but will switch to 19s soon. Proper clearance and fitment requires the stock apron to be cut and liners to be removed.”
