Simon Chan: 2013 Scion FR-S

Simon Chan was in the market for a rear-wheel drive car that he could have fun and get loose with for drifting. It should surprise no one that he settled on the 2013 Scion FR-S, one of the most balanced and tail-happy RWD platforms on the market. With the addition of some Rocket Bunny goodies and some cool custom modifications, this FR-S is one of a kind.
