Inside the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center
Any self respecting car company these days has to have a presence on social media sites, and Mercedes-Benz is no exception.

This German brand has their own channel of YouTube called MercedesBenzReporter, and they use this channel to inform the public about their latest models. However in a recent episode, they covered not a car, but a facility.

The facility in question is the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center in Irvine, CA. The job of the Classic Center is to help maintain and restore old Mercedes-Benz models.

The place is full of rare and exotic vehicles from the brand, so it is a must for any enthusiast of this brand to visit, especially since they buy cars to either display or sell.

GReddy Scion FR-S Makes Appearance At Irvine Cars And Coffee

When Scion‘s FR-S debuted out in Los Angeles, a modified black variant by GReddy was also present but wasn’t exactly center stage. This isn’t a huge surprise as GReddy has been a long time partner with Scion, but this might also be revealing a few more projects that are underway through the collaboration.

Scion decided to bring the modified version out to a Cars and Coffee event in Irvine, California, where visitors were treated to hearing the FR-S’s new exhaust note courtesy of GReddy. Given GReddy’s track record with other vehicles and products, a turbo kit is definitely in development right now along with a bolt-on intake and exhaust.

But what’s even more interesting is the possibility that GReddy will be building a drifter for Ken Gushi for the 2012 Formula DRIFT season since RS*R has decided to take a backseat to everything going on. Clearly the FR-S will be a popular tuning platform, let’s see if GReddy can put itself back on the map with it.

Check out the video after the break.
