10. Jade Crew Subaru BRZ
In a sea of custom Scion FR-S’ and Subaru BRZs at the 2012 SEMA Show, it’s surprisingly hard to compile a list of the top 10 without some criteria. So to compile our list of favorites, we decided to look at all the 86s and judge based on cleanliness, originality, and functionality – and of course, how it looked on the show floor.
Kicking off our top 10 list is a Subaru BRZ we spotted outside the convention center which to us, defines what a custom daily-driver BRZ should be. Nothing over-the-top, nothing too flashy – just simple and clean, with functional modifications. The Chargespeed carbon fiber lip kit complements the stock bodylines of the BRZ perfectly, while the custom blue Volk Racing TE37SLs pay tribute to a classic wheel that has truly lasted the test of time.
Almost a week since the Scion FR-S Tuner Challenge competitors were revealed, the Japanese automaker has picked a winner at the 2012 SEMA Show: Chris Basselgia. Basselgia, builder of the Minty FReSh Scion FR-S took home the top prize of $10,000 while John Toca’s FR-S came in second and Daniel Song’s FR-S GT came in third.
