Simplicity never goes out of style, and in GT Channel’s case, their Scion FR-S build for the Scion Tuner Challenge 2014 is just that. Staying true to the “tuner car” definition, this isn’t a full-out race car but one that’s fast and can be driven on a daily basis. Daring to be different, they’ve kept the factory lines, opting to stay true to the original form unlike most tuners who go wider. Teaming up with Japanese tuning legend, Mine’s, this car is clean and sophisticated with lots of attention to detail and design. Though it might look tame, the GT Channel FR-S is far from being that at all, and is ready to take any competitor on the track as its suspension has been completely dialed in with the help of MotoIQ
