The first 86 people in North America to own a Scion FR-S are pretty lucky as it is, but their deal just got a lot sweeter thanks to some VIP treatment from Toyota.

Apparently the privileged few who managed to get an order in ahead of the masses also get an expenses-paid trip to Long Beach, Calif. in April to sit front row at Formula Drift. They also get to have dinner with Scion vice president Jack Hollis which includes a Q&A session.

Sure, the stripped-down version isn’t making it to American soil, but this is arguably a better reward for enthusiasts than offering a tuner-specific package.

It’s especially cool that this came as a surprise, though the majority of people lining up to buy an FR-S probably feel jealous if not disappointed.

Despite this, it seems an official price is still under wraps, though we’ll make a lot of noise once word gets out.

    I agree; this is a backroads/track car and this drifting non-sense does not demonstrate the capabilities of it.I know that drifting originated in Japan and they feel that they “must carry on the tradition” or some such .But it truly makes no sense to as to why any one would want to participate in such lunacy!
