The Scion FR-S Soapbox Racer

The Scion FR-S Soapbox racecar recently participated in the Red Bull Soapbox Race in downtown LA.
Scion is on the verge of launching their first ever compact sports car. To commemorate the occasion, the Toyota subsidiary has taken their FR-S Five Axis Concept and produced a mini version for the Red Bull Soapbox Race.
