Scion's long-awaited FR-S, known as the Toyota GT86 abroad, has hit U.
S. shores a bit early. That's because Scion has engaged in a program known as the "First 86."
Kind of funny, given that the car isn't dubbed the GT86 but we won't spoil Toyota Motor Sales' fun.
Long story short, this "First 86" buyer received a couple of perks over the standard FR-S buyer. Obviously, the most important being that the first 86 buyers have begun to take delivery now while the rest of us have to wait until the summer.
The legitimately first owner also received niceties like a special carbon fiber plaque by Five Axis, a numbered carbon fiber license plate frame, an FR-S pen and more, according to Kaizen Factor.
It’s been a long wait, but history has been made. The first Scion FR-S (a.k.a. Toyota 86 & GT 86 outside of North America & Subaru BRZ globally) has been delivered to the first lucky enthusiast of the “First 86 Program”. Earlier this year at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, Scion USA announced a program where enthusiasts had a chance to be selected as one of the “First “86″ to purchase an FR-S. Well, the time has come, and the first of the lucky “First 86 Program” has taken delivery at the #1 Scion dealership, Longo Scion in Southern California.
