Pat Cyr's 2013 Scion FR-S has been making waves across the vast oceans of the interwebs since it was announced that Cyrious Garageworks would be replacing the powerplant in his new race car. Cyr's roots run deep with the Toyota RWD platform and true to those roots, rumour had it that the new (but old) motor powering his Scion Canada/Cyrious Garageworks FR-S in this year's DMCC is none other than the
It was announced mid-season last year that Cyr would be given a stock FR-S to compete with in the 2013 DMCC (amongst other events in the US) series and we're excited to see what this aggressive and extremely talented driver will do with the modern day AE86 successor. Pat has long-since been the underdog of any series that he competes in and has often come out on top, piloting his 27 year old AE86 to a second place finish last year.
Pat's new FR-S should be instantly recognized as Cyr's drift machine by the sinister matte green paint - much like his previous car. Similar to the old car, it rocks a front lip, an intercooler up front, and a Cyrious built rollcage. Cyr's FR-S will also sport a brand new wide body kit produced by ML24 by Matthew Law. The kit consists of four wide-body arches. All four fenders are handmade with fibreglass. While we don't have the motor specs yet, expect it to be a high-revving, fire-breathing turbo-charged competitor to the big V8's that are growing ever more popular around the drift circuit.
