Scion FR-S Gets Butched Up For Pirelli World Challenge Series Duty

The Scion FR-S its identical cousin the Subaru BRZ had a pretty strong showing at this year's SEMA show. However, this one may just be the coolest because it's an honest-to-God race car and not just a street car gussied up with stickers and carbon fiber.

As reported by Motor Authority, this is the FR-S that will compete in the 2013 season of the Pirelli World Challenge series. The car will be piloted by Robert Stout, who won the Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car championship in a Scion TC in 2010.

Stout's FR-S will have some pretty slick accoutrements, including a full roll cage, a prototype TRD supercharger, and a race-grade suspension and brakes.

It's probably not as hardcore as the Subaru BRZ that races in the Japanese Super GT series, but I wouldn't kick it out of my garage.
