Toyota has done a stellar job getting us grossly excited about the release of their newest sports car – the Scion FR-S in America (read our review here) – and now we can add yet another video to their endless promotional material.
This time however, we get to see the GT 86 out on the road along with behind the scene test drive clips. But what’s really awesome is the tribute appearance by Toyota’s S800, which was first introduced to the Japanese market in 1965. Back the, the sports car featured a 0.8L, two-cylinder boxer engine with a mere 45-hp and a top speed of just 100-mph. Only 3,131 examples of the S800 were produced from ’65 to ’69 and it’s a nice appearance alongside Toyota’s new future, the GT 86.

All week long we’ve been salivating at Toyota‘s 86 and Subaru‘s BRZ, and now we finally got to set our eyes on America’s variant, Scion‘s FR-S. And while we haven’t had the chance – just yet – to get behind the wheel of the new sports car, Toyota has allowed our eyes to feast on a video spotlighting their new sports car.
Admittedly the entire video looks like something out of Gran Turismo 5 or Forza Motorsport 4, but it’s eye candy at its best and is a great way to build up even more hype for the vehicle. Also those that are interested, there’s a ringtone of the Toyota 86′s engine being given away – just click here.
