GReddy Japan's Turbo FA20 FR-S Time Attacker

Furthering our development on the ZN6 chassis (Scion FR-S / Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ) our Japan R&D team has been working on a GReddy Turbo FA20-powered Time Attack FR-S... Best time, so far, is a quick 58"74 at Tsukuba Circuit.

You'll see more of the 500hp #99 TRUST/GReddy FR-S at the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon

UPDATED* Below is a recent clip of Time Attack ace, Tarzan Yamada at the wheel of the #99 TRUST/GReddy FR-S at the famous Tsukuba Circuit in Japan...

The GReddy turbocharged FA20 Demo car has made some serious changes since the last time it was displayed at the Tokyo Auto Salon...

It went from our production Tuner Turbo kit with GReddy X Rocket Bunny Ver1 aero to a built engine with over 500hp, custom aero components and a new retro GReddy Racing 

*As of 12/10/13 the current Tsukuba Circuit Time Attack track records for the ZN6 chassis are:
Rasty 86 (Yokohama) - 57"792
TRUST/GReddy FR-S (Yokohama) - 58"740
HKS 86 (Yokohama) - 58"808
Blitz 86 (Dunlop) - 58"886
