VIDEO: Scion Walks us Around the New FR-S Sports Coupe Concept

Toyota’s North American subsidiary, Scion, surprised us today at the opening of the 2011 New York Auto Show with the world premiere of its new FR-S sports coupe concept. We say ‘surprised’ not because we weren’t expecting a Scion-badged Toyota FT-86 to make its appearance in the Big Apple, but because of its refined design that made us forget about the FT-86 II concept we saw less than two months ago at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

Having brought you the first details and official photographs of the rear-wheel drive concept car (see here), we now give you the first videos of the FR-S study. Unfortunately, there’s no action going on here with Scion simply providing us a static promo film along with the usual B-roll walk around footage, but for those of you looking to explore all the fine details of the re-worked body, it’s worth your time. Follow the jump to take a look at both HD clips.
