Mackin Scion FR-S at Pikes Peak 2016

Scion teamed up with Mackin Industries for the 2015 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on June 28. Scion didn’t build this year’s car, but sponsored Mackin’s build of the FR-S, which has over 500-horsepower, along with Greddy and Evasive Motorsports.

Evasive Motorsports Dynoed the Pikes Peak 2015 FR-S and found 480-horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque on their Mustang Dyno. Not too shabby, and what’s even more impressive is that the build survived the 12.42-mile long Pikes Peak course that ends at 14,000 feet of elevation.

The FR-S was built with a Greddy turbo kit using a Garret GTX3076R turbo and a mean looking custom exhaust. The car was originally built for SEMA, so it’s not all go no show, the Mackin industries Pikes Peak FR-S also has a full Rocket Bunny widebody kit, Rays wheels with Toyo tires and of course a fully built suspension for the Hill Climb.

Official race results have not been tabulated yet due to a mixup on race day that involved two different checkered flags at different places on the course. Organizers say a decision has been made regarding official times and final results for the race are forthcoming (as of July 7).
