Scion today unveiled its first-ever Scion FR-S Art Car, designed by renowned DJ and producer Steve Aoki. Reflecting Aoki’s background as a dance musician, the FR-S received a complete audio/visual overhaul that includes a fully operational mixing station, a custom Pioneer sound system with multiple component speaker packages, a deck lid-mounted LCD display, along with a fog machine and strobe lighting to faithfully recreate a club atmosphere.
Built by Mike Vu of MV Designz, the exterior of the FR-S was also modified from the ground up with a unique 5-piece aero kit, 19” gunmetal colored wheels wrapped in Nitto NeoGen tires, lowering springs, and a GReddy performance exhaust. To tie together the theme of the Steve Aoki Scion FR-S, custom graphics with blue and orange trim pieces were applied to the car, giving it a visually distinctive look.
“I’ve always admired Scion’s support of underground artists including working with developing artists on my own label, Dim Mak,” said Aoki. “So when they approached me about designing a car that represented me and my lifestyle, I didn’t hesitate. From the music mixing station in the backseat, to built in Wi-Fi and bold color line, the Aoki x Scion FR-S is the car I always dreamed I’d have.”

Scion’s collaboration with Aoki is the latest in its long history of support for the creative arts community. Since the inception of the brand in 2003, Scion has helped over 1,700 artists follow their passions through projects including art installations, music events, record releases, and the Scion AV initiative.
“Infusing the Scion FR-S with Steve Aoki’s unique style proves that cars and the arts don’t have to be mutually exclusive,” said Scion sales and promotions manager, Jeri Yoshizu. “His take on the FR-S combines an exciting car with the personality that’s made him a popular name in the dance community.”
The Scion FR-S designed by Steve Aoki will be making appearances at Scion events throughout the year. To learn more about the other work Scion has done in the creative arts, visit www.scionav.com.
