The 2013 Scion FR-S in Orlando is probably the hottest new Scion in Central Florida – we can’t keep them on the lot of our Orlando Toyota dealership! This affordable sports car options melds performance, style, and exceptional standard features to create a new Scion in Orlando that has people lining up to drive it, and apparently TV personality Jay Leno is no exception – he recently attempted to drift this popular new Scion in Central Florida while on a trip to Japan, and Toyota of Orlando has the details!
While on a trip to Japan, Leno decided he wanted to learn to drift the 2013 Scion FR-S, and he wanted to learn from the best. Thus, he decided to get lessons from the King of Drifting himself, Keiichi Tsuchiya. Keiichi is renowned worldwide for his driving abilities, and debuted back in 1977. Since then he’s driven everything from underground street races to NASCAR events! Even though Keiichi doesn’t speak English, Leno decided to give a drifting lesson a shot – and failed. However, this probably had less to do with Leno’s inexperience (and lack of communication) than the abilities of the impressive Orlando Scion FR-S!
The 2013 Scion FR-S in Orlando is an innovative vehicle for several reasons. First of all, it’s a rear-wheel drive sports car. Thus, the FR-S, which stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel-drive, Sport. The Scion FR-S in Orlando utilizes a flat 2.0 liter 4 cylinder Boxer engine, which allows it to offer 200 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque (vroom). The flat shape of the engine allows the Scion FR-S in Central Florida to sit lower to the ground. Not only does this give it an overall sleeker and sportier look, it also lends to the Scion FR-S’ handling capabilities, as a lower center of gravity equates to better balance and maneuverability, sharper turns, and less likelihood to lose control.
Another reason the 2013 Scion FR-S in Orlando is innovative it the fact that it’s the first sports car Toyota and Scion have produced in some time – and its appearance speaks volumes. As mentioned, it has an aggressive and low-to-the-ground stands, and comes equipped with dual exhaust and 17 inch alloy wheels.
