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).
