Toyota’s US sub-brand Scion has commissioned a one-off speedster version of the just-launched FR-S coupe, the US-market version of the upcoming Toyota 86.

Built by SEMA regular Cartel Customs, the roofless FR-S will make its official debut at this weekend’s Toyota-sponsored Long Beach round of the 2012 IZOD IndyCar Series in California.

The Toyota/Subaru collaboration was always expected to be a hit among aftermarket tuners, but Cartel has taken its body modifications to an extreme level.

The key modifications performed by Cartel were the removal of the coupe’s fixed roof and deletion of its rear seats, replaced by a twin cowl cover similar to the classic Porsche Speedster models.

The windscreen has been lowered, with the top section of its frame removed, the top edge of which flows around to sloping door glass.

The interior has been stripped for a pseudo-racer appearance with reinforcement beams inboard of the doors. The instrument cluster has also been moved to the center of the dashboard.

The mechanicals of the Cartel FR-S are less severely modified, however a brace of bolt-on aftermarket goodies have been used.

These include an ACT clutch upgrade, GReddy sports exhaust system, KW coil-over suspension, Wilwood brakes and Toyo Proxes R888 tires on 18-inch Forge Line wheels, along with a giant carbon-fibre rear wing.

The Cartel FR-S is set to complete parade laps during the pre-race ceremonies at Long Beach this weekend.

Australia’s Toyota 86 variant (with fixed roof) is due to hit our shores in June.
