The annual SEMA Show is an exciting time for car tuners and enthusiast worldwide, as the aftermarket gets ready to unleash all of its newest products for today’s hottest cars. And what car is hotter this year than the Scion FR-S?

As we mentioned in our review of the FR-S, Toyota has put out one of its greatest sports cars ever in the form of a Scion. Since its release, the aftermarket has pounced on every opportunity to eke out more performance from the FR-S, and we expect to see plenty of new offerings at this year’s show in Las Vegas.

Meguiar’s teamed up with Scion as well as designers RJ De Vera and Jon Sibal to create this machine, which will sport a Vortech Supercharger under the hood. In addition, the team reached out to Motiv Concepts for its high-flow catalytic converter and a bespoke exhaust system with custom powder-coated tips.

But performance isn’t all this ‘NuR’ Concept FR-S is all about. Grabbing the attention of show-goers at SEMA could be a tough task, considering the sea of customized cars that show up from all across the nation. As a detailing company, Meguiar’s placed emphasis on the fine details of the project, outfitting the exterior with a ChargeSpeed carbon fiber aero kit. Five:AD pitched in with its rear trunk wing, while the headlight and taillight housings were modified.

A coat of Meguiar’s Fly Yellow paint was then applied, before Daley Visual worked its magic with a matte gunmetal racing stripe. For a wheel setup, the team reached out to Forgeline Motorsports for its GA1R Forged Monoblock wheels that utilize a single-bolt design. Staggered in 19-inch, the wheels conceal a four-piston Brembo big brake kit with Clubsport race calipers in the front and Sport calipers in the rear. Suspension duties are handled by a set of KW Suspension Variant 3 coilovers.

Lastly, plenty of details accent the interior including black leather and grey Alcantara with yellow contrast stitching, custom yellow seat belts and dash panels wrapped in Meguiar’s Carbon Black Wraptivo.

AutoGuide will be sure to check out the Meguiar’s Scion FR-S at the Scion booth at this year’s SEMA Show. But for now, check out some close up teaser photos that were sent to us of the project.
